Windows 10 update for phones starting now

Windows 10 update for phones starting now

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. While we're not 100% certain of which devices will receive said update first, we have gotten some clues - if you purchased a phone in the past year from the higher end of Windows Phone, you may be in luck. Unless you have a Lumia 1520 or 1020, sadly.

Qualcomm LiQUID might be Windows 10 QHD Lumia 2520 successor

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.

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.

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

It is no secret that Microsoft wants to take its smartphone platform to devices even lower on the hardware spectrum than its Lumia 5XX series. That desire might actually soon take flesh, if this Lumia 435 that has been repeatedly sighted and passed around the Internet really does take flight. This low-end smartphone from Microsoft Mobile will practically fill in the missing slot in Microsoft's lineup, a slot that has so far been occupied by the non-Windows Asha line and a bit by the Android-powered Nokia X.

Nokia Lumia 520 is now a $29 smartphone with no contract

Microsoft has a smartphone called the Nokia Lumia 520, one that they now have available to buy for $29. This is the Nokia Lumia 520, a device that we've reviewed more than once - once as the 520 and another time as the T-Mobile version (basically the same device) as the 521. Back then, it was cheap. Now it's staggeringly cheap. This device has a 5-megapixel camera at its back, 8GB of storage inside, and a 4-inch display. There's also a micro-SD card slot inside for if you'd like to expand your storage further.
