Microsoft Corp. plans to hold a special event for mass media where it will discuss consumer features of Windows 10 operating system in detail. The press event is rumoured to be held in late January.
The world’s largest software maker formally announced its next Windows 10 operating system in late September and released technical preview of the platform in early October primarily aiming at enterprise and enthusiast users to collect their feedback. While a lot of features of Windows 10 exist in the version currently tested by the members of Microsoft Insider program, a lot of capabilities and the all-new touch interface are still not there.
At the event in late January the software developer intends to discuss currently unknown features of Windows 10 as well as reveal its new touch interface dubbed Continuum, reports The Verge.
Since Windows 10 is designed to run on different kinds of devices providing “the right experience on the right device at the right time,” it is logical to expect Microsoft to show off how the operating system works on smartphones, tablets, 2-in-1s and different personal computers.
Microsoft is expected to formally announce the event already this year.
Microsoft did not comment on the news-story.

KitGuru Says: It is interesting to note that Microsoft decided not to impress general public with Windows 10 devices at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January, but plans a separate media-only event at a later date. Perhaps, Windows 10 is not really around the corner and it makes no sense to show it to the public just now. If the software giant plans to release Windows 10 sometimes in September or October, 2015, it clearly does not want to slow sales of Windows 8.1-based PCs in the first half of the year by showing off Windows 10 at CES. Still, since the late January event is expected to be public, all the details will be available for everyone. Just not in the mainstream media…
