Windows 10 Preview released for phones

The Technical Preview for Windows 10 became available for early testers today in Microsoft's latest bid to keep their software universe moving forward. Users wishing to take part in the early preview have to sign up for the Technical Preview program, download a special app for their Windows Phone device, then hit the update button, so to speak. This software is not guaranteed to be as solidly reliable as a normal update, but that's not going to stop the masses from getting the newest bits as fast as they can – right this minute!

This software goes by the name Build 10051, and is the "Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones" – if you want to say it the long way. There's a list of devices that will work with this build – and as Microsoft's Gabe Aul assures us, this list is not final or full by any means.

There's a WHOLE LOT more devices on this list than the last Technical Preview release – a sure sign of good things to come with future OS releases for Windows 10 on mobile devices.
