Tomorrow Microsoft is finally going to show off the consumer version of Windows 10, this includes Windows 10 for mobile devices, but if latest reports are to be believed you shouldn’t expect Microsoft to release Windows 10 mobile preview tomorrow. If the sources mentioned in this report are correct the Windows 10 mobile preview release might not happen until February.
Microsoft first gave an overview of Windows 10 back in September 2014 after which a Technical Preview was also released. A detailed look at the features and everything that’s new in the software will be provided at tomorrow’s event.
ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, who has been right on several accounts in the past, hears from sources that the Windows 10 mobile preview release won’t take place until February. The mobile SKU of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows iteration is said to be work with both Windows Phones and tablets based on Intel and ARM processors.
The report doesn’t claim if the next technical preview of Windows 10 for desktop will be released at the same time next month to coincide with the release on mobile. Microsoft will probably clear this up at the event on January 21st so we really don’t have to wait that long to find out for sure.
Also expected to make an appearance at the event tomorrow is the new touch-optimized version of Office for Windows, something that Windows Phone users have particularly been looking forward to, and if recent reports are any indication this version of Office might look similar to its iOS counterpart.
