10 Windows Mobile Review – a new Windows Phone for Everyone




He tried to explain the system with just words, because the unit he dared not show. The LG-engineer at the headquarters of the smartphone maker in the South Korean capital Seoul talked about large letters, horizontally swipe through menus and an interface optimized for touch screens. It was January 2010, and Windows Phone 7 was still secret. Officially there was only the old Windows Mobile 6.5, an operating system that looked all antiques in 2010.

10 Windows Mobile

Curious detail: the LG-husband thought the final name Windows Mobile 7 would be. At the presentation later that year turned out to be Windows Phone 7 Series, and the word Series went off and Windows Phone 7 remained. The engineer turned five years too early. Now, the end of 2015, the mobile operating system appears with the naming Microsoft then apparently had in mind: 10 Windows Mobile.

However, Microsoft does not mention the name everywhere. Often will refer the company to the operating system just like Windows 10, the same name as those for desktops, for his sleigh glasses Hololens, for internet-of-things-applications and for the Xbox One. After all, Microsoft wants all Windows products together under one heading.

Since 2010 Windows Phone greatly to the desktop Windows converged. With the move to version 8 in 2012, Microsoft switched the kernel of Windows CE for NT. Now, in 2015, are largely the same systems, but in a different form. In addition, Windows 10 displays for smartphones much later than for desktops. The desktop version came out in late July; Windows 10 for mobiles came from the end of November, along with the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. We have tested with Windows 10 build 10 586 on a Lumia 930.
