TheGraphics, 12 Jan 2015i had already seen the windows 10. Trust me, it doesn't have much difference aside from naming... moreHmm, i don't mind metro flate style, in fact, that is one of the reason i bought a lumia. Before i had symbian (which i still think is the most capable system on this market) went through some androids (just a few days) some ios (just a few days, and they all look like a symbian wannabe, also retarded in front of it. If symabian would have been developed by now, there could never be aatch to that system. Anyways, i choose wp cause of new. Something new and fancy, got bored of the same interface since 2002. And of corse, cause of Nokia. So, apparebtly not everybody is sharing your thoughts, there are some well experienced people out there who are sick of this two systems that everybody praise with no real motives but apps...
Great news. I'm waiting for this update to my Lumia 1520. But come on Microsoft. Hurry up. I want another high end window phone. I will buy it when it release. Hoping to buy the Lumina 1530 that had been rumour..
Marek, 12 Jan 2015Ghe Windows Phone brand didn't go in pair with tablets. Windows Mobile does.So there were no tablets when they came up with that name?
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2015hope to have the windows 10 update on my lumia 1320. Microsoft have already stated if your phone is running 8.1 then you will be able to upgrade to version 10.
AnonD-351264, 12 Jan 2015It's hardly fair to put all the blame on MS for the lack of apps. They've delivered a great OS... moreIf I was a developer I'd work for Windows... Why? Because there's less competition and better chances to earn something. But they prefer to make 25000th fart app for Android or iOS and hope theirs will be the one that becomes a hit.
Windows Mobile designation was used in there PDA software.
it will be a good os
AnonD-178450, 12 Jan 2015So they are calling it Windows Mobile now? OMG what happened to Windows Phone brand then?Ghe Windows Phone brand didn't go in pair with tablets. Windows Mobile does.
hope to have the windows 10 update on my lumia 1320.
AnonD-178450, 12 Jan 2015So they are calling it Windows Mobile now? OMG what happened to Windows Phone brand then?It was windows mobile 5.6.. Before going to windows phone. So they are going olto bring back winmo again
i had already seen the windows 10. Trust me, it doesn't have much difference aside from naming scheme. The UI still the sucky Metro UI. It won't beat the Android or iOS in any way. Microsoft will remain the least prefer in 2015 and so on until they change the whole view of that crappy metro UI.
AnonD-351264, 12 Jan 2015It's hardly fair to put all the blame on MS for the lack of apps. They've delivered a great OS... moreThey have come along nicely in the past 3 years and very quickly. Some people forget than apple phone has been about for near ten years mainstream and android also.
Give it another couple of years , it can only get better.
This change has been on the cards for a while
Leave window 10.still waiting for denim update for lumia 630..
It's hardly fair to put all the blame on MS for the lack of apps. They've delivered a great OS, worked up strong developer programme and even bought the company building the best WP phones. Problem is too many developers just don't like MS no matter what they do and have this impression that Apple are "cool" and Google "open" whereas MS are old and broken. They have done a lot to make WP a success, but the chips are just against them. I expect great things for Windows 10 in terms of features, consistency and integration - but I don't think it will resolve the app gap. They'd be better off working on their brand than their software cos that to me seems like their biggest hurdle.
wow!!a great step..but why windows mobile???
This is one of the most dumb operating system and mobile system. Its not even equivalent to Android 2.2 which I used upto October, 2014 (for 3 years).
I dont know how Nokia/ Microsoft brand this as SMART PHONE.
All windows phones are of a special mobile phone category. Thats "UN-SMART PHONE".
I was very happy with NOKIA featurephone line-up. So I thought Windows Lumia 730 will be a good phone. But nothing can be done smartly on this device.
hay microsoft please dont change the name windows phone to windows mobile.........
