The next big Windows 10 event is set to unwrap later on today, and we already have clear indication that Windows 10 will be released for smartphones, as well. But when exactly will that happen? Here are some fresh details.
Mary Jo Foley is a well-known Microsoft insider whose sources are in most cases pretty accurate. That’s why I always listen carefully to what she has to says and if it’s news-worthy, I report it with an article. Such is the case this time, as well, as she has some interesting inside information to share regarding the release date of Windows 10 for mobile devices.
The Windows pundit seems to believe that Microsoft will release the first preview of the mobile version of its Windows 10 operating system some time in February 2015.
Furthermore, her sources have said that it will work on both Windows Phones and smaller Intel and ARM based tablets. So, it seems that bigger tablets will run the main Windows 10 version, while smaller-sized ones will get the mobile version. But they will probably share the same core, in the true spirit of the Windows One strategy.
Chances are that the release of the next technical preview build of Windows 10 for desktops could take place in the same time with the mobile version in February. It doesn’t make too much sense to release them separately, to be frank. We will probably be hearing more news today, so stay tuned.
