We already that Windows 10 will ship in seven editions, as follows – Home, Pro, Mobile, Education, Enterprise, IoT Core and Mobile Enterprise. And we also know that desktop users will get the free upgrade to Windows 10 at the end of this July, but what we still don’t know is when is Microsoft going to release Windows 10 for mobile users.
But if this recent report coming from Neowin holds any truth in it, then we should expect Windows 10 Mobile to be available “late next quarter,” which hints for a launch at the end of September. The above screenshot has been taken from a presentation Microsoft gave to one of its partners, and in this slide we can clearly see when is Microsoft planning to launch Windows 10 Mobile.
According to the Microsoft spokesperson who leaked the info, the OS could also get released in October, as well. However, let’s not forget that this information was meant for OEMs and partners and not regular users. So this means the actual commercial release could take place a little later, as we still need to take into account other things like carrier testing. But Microsoft could still make an official announcement, nonetheless.
Microsoft is suffering when it comes to mobile operating systems, and its current Windows version is a big bet in order to try and win customers over. Windows Phone is already said to witness a nice growth in several parts of the world and along with the ability to run Android and iOS apps, its share is bound to increase even more once Windows 10 gets unleashed.
