Microsoft increases max screen size of Windows 10 Mobile devices to 9 inches

Microsoft has changed the specifications for devices running its Windows 10 Mobile operating system by making the maximum screen size to under “nine inches”, reveals the new MSDN documentation spotted. Earlier, the maximum size was 8 inches.

This means that the tablets designed to run this mobile platform are now extending to the category of full-sized tablets. Microsoft has also modified its 7-inch screens to run the Windows 10 desktop operating system. Earlier, the limit was 8-inch for the majority of the devices. However, tablets running Windows 10 Pro (only) were allowed previously to be 7-inch.

With this, small phablets with 7-inch displays can now become more productive. They’ll also be affordable, with the only remaining challenge is to use a fully featured Windows 10 version on a small screen. The Windows 10 devices will also include auto flash, an upgrade considering the fact that most popular Windows Phone handset, the low-end Nokia Lumia 520 didn’t come with a flash.
