Next Windows 10 for Phones build could support 30 models

While the Windows 10 upgrade path on the desktop is more or less clear cut, the same can't be said of their mobile counterparts. Last February, Microsoft started handing out preview builds of the upcoming operating system but its coverage was worryingly limited, to at most 6 models. That's not to say that Microsoft will only be supporting those and upcoming smartphones, but it hung a cloud of uncertainty over users. Now Microsoft is clearing the air by revealing as much as 36 models (30 if you count variants as one) who might be in the next round of builds.

Microsoft might not be making a big splash at MWC this year, but that doesn't mean it's completely ignoring the opportunity to show some signs of life. While it does have a few products, they aren't that big. Well unless you mean physically big. The tech giant is unveiling the new Lumia 640 and its giant cousin named, what else, the Lumia 640 XL. But don't get too excited yet about these smartphones as they aren't yet running what would eventually be Window 10 for phones.

While the Windows Phone world still wait with bated breath which current Lumia models will be getting a Windows 10 upgrade, it seems that Microsoft might already be working on the next generation of its budget smartphones. A certain Lumia 640 was recently leaked with the expected budget specs. But somewhat a bit more surprising is sighting of its predecessor, the Lumia 635, with a "refreshed" model.

This morning Microsoft's Gabriel Aul made it official: the Technical Preview for Windows 10 for smartphones will be beginning today. Today is the day, at last, and finally - the button has been pressed, and the update is, indeed, happening.

Qualcomm LiQUID might be Windows 10 QHD Lumia 2520 successor

Microsoft may have practically sealed the fate of Windows RT with the demise of the Surface (not Pro) tablets, but it seems it has something quite interesting in the works. Rumors of a 2K display, Snapdragon 805 device for Windows Phone have been going around but, considering recent announcements and rebranding, that seems to be taking a slightly different turn. Indeed, a GFXBench listing now shows an ARM tablet bearing those features and running a "WINDOWS" operating system, hinting this could very well be the successor to 2013's Lumia 2520.

Microsoft confuses on Windows 10 phone upgrades

First came the good news: Windows 10 would be a free upgrade; now comes the small print, that not everybody is going to be eligible. After Microsoft surprised Windows fans earlier this week with the promise that not only would those running Windows 8 get an upgrade to the latest OS, but those on Windows 7 too, some of the goodwill sheen has been rubbed off after first Windows RT users and now some Lumia Windows Phone owners have been left uncertain whether they'll ever get Windows 10 on their devices.
