Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 will roll out to “the majority” of smartphones running Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1.
Speaking at Lumia Conversations (Microsoft’s official Lumia blog), Chris Weber, Corporate Vice President of Sales for the Microsoft Mobile Devices group, said, “We’re making it as easy as possible to get Windows 10. Windows 10 has been designed to run well on today’s Lumia phones. Like any upgrade to a new platform, not every phone will upgrade or support all possible Windows 10 features, and certain features and experiences will require more advanced future hardware. Our goal is for the majority of the Lumia phones running Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 to join the Windows ecosystem along with an expected hundreds of millions of PCs, tablets and other devices running the next generation of Windows.”
Sadly, Weber didn’t say when exactly Windows 10 will be rolling out to Lumia devices running Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1. We’ll just have to wait for further announcements.
