On Wednesday, Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 operating system for desktop and laptop users. Now, Microsoft is expected to roll out the Windows 10 Mobile OS for smartphones and tablets in the near future.
A Microsoft executive in South Africa, Anthony Doherty, has told iAfrica that Windows 10 Mobile will be available around November. He added that the Redmond-based company is making apps for Android and iOS because it wants the tool sets available across different platforms.
Despite Doherty's hint, Microsoft has not published any official information on the mobile rollout on its website. The initial release of the Windows 10 Mobile will not be available to all Lumia devices. The Lumia 430, the Lumia 435 the Lumia 532, the Lumia 535, the Lumia 540, the Lumia 640, the Lumia 640 XL, the Lumia 735, the Lumia 830 and the Lumia 930 will be the first 10 Lumia smartphones to receive Windows 10 Mobile when it is launched,
The Windows 10 Mobile comes with several new features when compared to the Windows Phone 8.1 OS. Even though the recently released build of Windows 10 Mobile seems to be complete, Microsoft is keen on adding newer features to its mobile OS in future, The Verge reported.
Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, has confirmed that the firm will be focusing more on releasing advanced devices for premium consumers.
Rumors claim that Myerson is hinting about a Surface Phone. Also, at the coming IFA 2015 event, Microsoft is expected to reveal the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL flagships.
