Windows 10 for phones
Windows phones weren’t very popular. Their rivals, Android and iPhone are used much more and often considered a much better phones. Reasons, as users are saying the complicated interface and low app support. But with Windows 10, the situation is going to be changed. This is a newer and updated version, and it brings some new features to the Windows OS. There are first previews of this OS available to the testers.
Windows 10 is designed for smart phones and tablets and it can run on ARM and Intel based hardware. The testing is now available on Lumnia phones such as: 630, 635, 730 and 830 (there is no Nokia name anymore since Microsoft bought this company). At this time we cannot tell what all changes where made to this OS, but we know of a few. Skype and SMS will be integrated, the start menu will have a full-size background image, action center has more quick actions, interactive notifications are available, speech to text is improved and apps for photos are updated. Microsoft office software will be also updated. Browser Spartan is still in question, there is no official information when Microsoft will update this browser or remove it from the new OS.
This OS will officially be available in October this year, and it will available for smart phones, tablets and laptops. Although, it is an updated version, it wouldn’t take more space on your hard drive than windows 8.1. I don’t recommend updating your phone as soon as an update is available, much better solution is to wait and see how it really works. There are many updates that went wrong (not just for Microsoft), so you will need to obtain additional information about performances and reliability.
