Microsoft’s new Windows 10 Mobile could redefine the struggling operating system within the mobile sector when it arrives on its rumoured October release date. With a scalable user interface and more, just how good is it shaping up? Tom Wellburn investigates Build 10149.
Microsoft is betting a lot on Windows 10. The Redmond company has placed its entire future vision on the basis of a fully integrated, scalable Operating System that can be applied to any device regardless of size. With the desktop version of Windows 10 quickly nearing completion, I decided to take the plunge and jump onto the mobile bandwagon. Microsoft has been offering early access to the software for some time through the Windows Insider Program, though previous builds were far too buggy to be considered usable in the long-term. With Windows 10 Mobile slated for a rumoured October release date, I decided to test drive the software for an entire month and see if it was up to scratch. Risky? Incredibly. Let’s see how it goes.
