Windows 10 for Phones

Windows 10 is well on it’s way to release and the technical preview for PC’s has been out for a while, but Microsoft released the preview for Phones only recently.

Unfortunately my Nokia 925 isn’t included in the initial batch of supported phones for the preview but I expect it will be soon enough.  By the sounds of it it’s a limitation on the size of the system partition and Microsoft is having to write a partition resizing tool before they can support more phones.

I have seen a few images floating around the net of some of the new UI and it looks good so far.

The thing I’m most interested in seeing is how well the universal apps work, especially Outlook.  While Mail on Windows and the Inbox on Windows Phone, they do leave quite a bit to be desired for more advanced functionality.

The push to unified applications across all form factors is really something that feels like the right thing to do, now the only question is can they catch up and convince everyone else?

I wouldn’t mind seeing an Intel based phone with WiDi and Bluetooth keyboard/mouse that would act as a full PC, running a full copy of Windows to see what it looks like, just for kicks 🙂
