Anonymous, 20 Jan 2015Windows Phone 7/8/8.1 (so the entire Windows "Phone" family) is clearly a failure. ... moreMaking an OS try to run both x86 and arm simultaneously might not be a good idea specially on smartphones, considering windows is all about being fluid I wonder if they can pull it of without hampering the overall experience.
David, 20 Jan 2015If it is running a normal Windows OS,then it should run flash, right? I live in hope..I wouldn't hope too much about flash because seems like everybody is shifting to html5
ok so if its going to be called windows 10, does this mean i will be able to run windows 10 apps and legacy software?
Ani, 20 Jan 2015Will windows 10 come to lumia 7301 gig ram, so it's almost guaranteed. :-)
Ani, 20 Jan 2015Will windows 10 come to lumia 730Definitely. All wp8 devices will get windows 10.

Windows Phone 7/8/8.1 (so the entire Windows "Phone" family) is clearly a failure.
Microsoft finally admits it, and try to renew the brand.
BUT calling an ARM base (or to be more exact a "not X86 compatible") OS Windows, is a mistake, as we seen it with Windows RT.
OK, modern app-s will be cross platforms, and will run both architecture, and on ARM and X86 base OS, but this new OS clearly will NOT be "WINDOWS 10". Windows (Phone) 10 with ARM base METRO Apps just a tiny part of Windows 10. And the WORST part of it.
I hope one day MS will integrate X86/64 base Atom SoC to it's phone, and will run full Windows 10 (or Win11), with wireless display, mouse and keyboard connectivity option. THAT will be the WINDOWS 10 for phones.
This is just the new name the worthless Windows Phone family.
(Still, at least they should make a nice GUI, instead this ugly and boring POS called "Metro or Modern UI).
AnonD-161121, 20 Jan 2015So full blown Windows on your phone. I highly doubt that. This is just pure marketing.Of course you won't get traditional desktop applications on a phone size screen. The name implies only that touch friendly "Modern UI" apps should be unified across form factors, but of course it will still need support from developers.
