Windows Phone 10 to Roll Out to all Lumia Smartphones

Windows 10 will get released sometime in 2015, and it seems that Microsoft looks to unify all its operating systems under a single banner. Tablets, laptops, hybrids and desktops will get a software that will share the same source as that one for phones.

This means that, most likely, it will be called Windows Phone 10, if Microsoft doesn’t decide to name it just Windows for mobile. But, since we’re not sure how is it going to be called, we’ll refer to it as Windows Phone 10.

In the above picture, we can see a tweet from the official Microsoft Lumia account, confirming that all Windows Phone 8.x Lumia devices will be upgraded to Windows 10 in the future.The tweet reads like this:

“There will be Windows 10 upgrades for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices 🙂 And we will release new Windows 10 models in the future!”

This is great news and we hope that will extend to other Windows Phone 8 smartphones, as well. But for now, it seems that only Microsoft Lumia has officially confirmed the information.

However, getting back to the naming idea, it seems that Windows 10 will be what Microsoft will choose, which will be a clear sign of unifying the operating systems.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, said that Microsoft wants to: “streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system for screens of all sizes”.

At the moment, we don’t know when exactly will Windows 10 be released, but we will be keeping an eye out for more information and we’ll make sure to update once we know more details.

  1. Ok… “All” devices is a pretty broad sweep. Also, is it expected to be a carrier pushed OTA update, or will it be a download from Microsoft? Pieces like this read that your old EOL’d phone is magically going to run Windows (m) 10 without TMO, V, or ATT having any say in the matter.
