Windows 10 mobile rollout gets delayed again

Microsoft has had to delay the rollout of Windows 10 for mobile devices once again. The update was supposed to release soon after the team missed the December release date but now it looks like Windows Phone owners are going to have to wait a bit longer.

This is according to a report from VentureBeat. Microsoft originally wanted to put Windows 10 on current Lumia devices later this month but apparently the software just “isn't ready yet”.


Windows 10 has appeared on two devices already, namely the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Apparently the rollout of Windows 10 on smartphones will now take place after the release of the Lumia 650, which will be a low-end device aimed at businesses.

The Lumia 650 is also currently tipped to be the last Lumia ever. After that, Microsoft will apparently move on to new branding for its Windows smartphones. The company has toyed with the idea of a Surface phone in the past so that could be the direction Microsoft takes things later this year.

KitGuru Says: Microsoft is looking to unify desktop, laptop and mobile with Windows 10. However, it seems that the company is running into some issues on the mobile front. Are any of you running a Windows Phone at the moment? Are you planning on sticking with it?
