After a few weeks of July 2013, Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview should be released.
Quote:
The consumer preview of Windows 8.1 is out and alive in the market, but large companies that have Windows 8 installed across their IT setup will have to hang patient for some time yet. According to Microsoft, the Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO images will not be released for another few weeks. That said, assuming no timeline slippage, we should see the enterprise build of the Windows 8.1 Preview in July, or at least no later than early August. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft is not encouraging companies to deploy the 8.1 preview builds broadly before they are complete. In a blog post, the company states that “testing [the preview] on lab and other non-critical computers is recommended,” and that “broad deployments” should be delayed until the “final Windows 8.1 release.”Windows 8.1 will be released in 2013, but no formal date has been set. It would not be a surprise to see its release coincide with the one year anniversary of Windows 8 itself. That would place 8.1′s launch in late October, in time to reach stores in sufficient time for the holiday device sales cycle. For more on what Windows 8.1 contains, TNW has both a feature rundown and a hands-on trip through the new code. If you want the short version, Windows 8.1 is a broad upgrade to Windows 8, but doesn’t fully de-quirk the operating system. That said, the new capabilities and applications in 8.1 are more than welcome, and make the operating system far better ‘out of the box.’

Soon the Enterprise SKU of Windows 8.1 will arrive.

No. Any windows with Enterprise is only meant for schools and large organizations. 8.1 enterprise is probably only available from SA when it is released.

It varies from school to school, but generally, Enterprise is meant for larger companies. Hence why it uses Volume licensing, for a large number of computers...

I would say that Enterprise is used for large organizations where a large amount of clients are needed, regardless if it's a school, corporation or just a very large summer camp... our schools all use Enterprise since they all belong to the same municipal which holds the licenses. And on top of that you also look to the cost and need for such license. Either way, hopefully we'll see Enterprise here on BA too.

Will the previewbe available for all?
Or , if it is not available for us , any type of an evaluation(like Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation) would be available for all?

But those who still use Windows XP... they still use Professional.
And for some enterprises who buy PC's preloaded with Windows 7/8 Professional and don't have the money to afford Enterprise...

The Preview won't be available for us. Just like in case of Windows 8 Release Preview (yes, that also had the Enterprise edition). But, when 8.1 will be released on MSDN (1 or 2 weeks after a leak), I am pretty sure they'll have also Enterprise Evaluation available to download on Eval Center.
