Microsoft may have only just announced Windows Phone 8 Update 3, but the company plans to start delivering it to developers later today. After over a year in the making, Microsoft is finally launching its Windows Phone Preview for developers. The program will provide registered developers with early access to Windows Phone 8 updates, bypassing the complex and lengthy carrier testing process. Microsoft is specifically targeting developers with this program, but for $19 a year any Windows Phone 8 user can sign up and get early access to updates. Even registered Windows Phone App Studio developers will be able to get early access.

by the way,you can register for a free developer account that has a sideload limit of 2. this should work as well.

I'll wait until some people here have tried the new update on their Lumia 520's before I do it myself

Don't know to much about smartphones, this is my first one, don't want to ruin it.

 

But excited non the less, if this works it would be great for all of us

If a Windows Phone user opts to install the pre-release updates then they'll have to wait until the update is released publicly to be in a "released state" as there's no way to restore back to an older version of Windows Phone 8.

Hopefully the Verge is wrong about this part. I can't see how Microsoft will have delivered this program late and with less features then were around for the Mango version of the program. How can you not be able to restore your phone to a point prior to when it was updated using this method?

 

They seriously need to sort out the Windows Phone backup story...

Actually it can be able to restore to old point only if it's failed to get updated. Otherwise you don't need to restore it to old version. Yes, it's specifically targeted for WP enthusiastic ppl, who wants to test and not for everyone.
