[sc:windows-category ]Back in the day, my first smart phone was a Windows Mobile HTC 6800, I guess it’s time to go back to the future!
Microsoft announced it’s SKU’s for Windows 10 last week and included in the list was Windows 10 Mobile, for phones and tablets.
I guess it makes sense, Microsoft is expanding beyond just phone’s to small tablets and other portable devices so calling it Windows 10 Phone doesn’t make much sense.
Windows 10 Portable has too much of a programming context too it and would be confusing.
I always like Windows Mobile as a name so I’m fine with it and I suspect enough time has passed for it not to be a marketing problem. Except for maybe a few tech writers that still remember Windows Mobile from the old days of 2008 🙂
At least it doesn’t have the WinCE abbreviation to deal with.
