    Starting this summer, any Lumia device currently running Windows Phone 8 will receive an over-the-air update to WP8.1 . I think Nokia may call this update as Cherry Blossom Pink.

      Officially not yet launched by Microsoft WP8.1 update from WP8. It is still in Developer Preview. Link is http://dev.windowsphone.com/en-us/develop/devpreview . Kindly understand, if you install this, all future updates will be only from the Microsoft channel, and not via Nokia and you will miss out on the Nokia channel enhancements fine tuned for Lumia. Besides it will void your warranty also.

      GDR's are OS updates and are from MS. Amber/Black are firmware updates that are from Nokia.
      If you are not sure what Update you have, then go to settings-About-and you will See
      i think Amber has a requirement of GDR2, black have requirement of GDR3.
