Windows 10 Mobile to come out in September
A few weeks ago Microsoft announced it would release Windows 10 on July 29 but no word was said about Windows 10 Mobile. Well, it turns out that the fans of mobile Microsoft operating systems will have to wait – Windows 10 Mobile will be released in September of this year.
The news comes from a leaked Microsoft slide which shows that Windows 10 Mobile will arrive in late Q3 2015, which means September or even late September. This affects both the enterprise and consumer versions of Windows 10 Mobile.
This news follows shortly the announcement that some PCs will not get Microsoft’s new Edge browser along with the launch of Windows 10 this summer. In fact Edge will not be available on Windows 10 Enterprise systems that are on the Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) and Microsoft has confirmed that this information is correct.
Fortunately for most Windows 10 users, they will never have to deal with LTSB, which allows PCs to receive security patches and urgent hot-fixes but no new OS features for 10 years. LTSB is intended for PCs and people who run mission-critical or otherwise locked-down applications, on systems that might be disrupted by the regular arrival of new features and updates.
Now when you think about it – two months time isn’t that long of a period and given that we don’t have a choice we will have to wait for Windows 10 Mobile to hit the market. The good news is that we’ll have Windows 10 to play with then.
