You can find out more details about the developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1 over at Microsoft, and if you are not a developer you can also try the update out, although it is not the final build.
The guys from TechCrunch explain how you can get the Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview on your handset if you are not a developer.
To get the update, go to the Windows Phone App Studio web page and sign in with your MS credentials. Start your own project (don’t worry, you never have to actually build anything if you don’t want to) and then grab the companion Windows Phone app that tells your phone to look for the update. The check for a new update in the software update section of settings in your Windows Phone. All Windows Phone 8 devices are compatible with the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
