Microsoft promises Windows 10 for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices

By November 14th, 2014 AT 4:09 PM

Even though Microsoft is yet to reveal what are the new features that will be released with Windows 10, but they have already announced the update for all Lumia smartphones with Windows 8. The official Lumia account affirmed via tweet that all Lumia devices running Windows Phone 8 OS will definitely receive an upgrade to the Windows 10.

The Twitter account of Microsoft Lumia is now being operated by Microsoft, which is why, the information sent out through the account in the form of a tweet, can be termed as genuinely official. The latest tweet means all the Lumia devices running on Windows Phone 8 platform, right from the high-end to the low-end ones, will be upgraded to Windows 10 operating system.

The news has surfaced immediately after the leaks began to spill out, that Microsoft has issued the builds of Windows Phone 10 to its partners for testing. However, this does’t mean that devices will start receiving the update right away as the development is still at a very early stage.

The announcement is a sigh of relief for Lumia owners, as they can be sure now that history will not be repeating itself. In 2012, Microsoft disappointed its loyal users by declaring that Windows Phone 7 based devices won’t be upgraded to Windows Phone 8. The drastic announcement was mostly due to a major change in the Windows 8 software kernel, but all the technical reasoning did nothing to convince the mass.

Are you a Lumia user? What are your expectations for the Windows 10 update?

Windows is best in both looks and performance. Android is just an over marketed cheap product, nothing else. As far as the apps availability is concern, it will automatically increase if more people will start adapting Windows devices.

In 2008 I used Nokia E65, E51. In 2011, I used Nokia C6-00. I sold them. I am using Symbian phones (N8, N79 and 5320 xpressmusic) now. They rock in terms of most usage except desktop mode webpage viewing. Symbian phones have native support for folder messaging. No other operating system has this feature. I am using LG G3 for online texts and email vis bluemail app. I am using EASY SMS app in G3 for folder messaging. But windows phone does bot have any app for folder messaging. But I agree positively that lumia 730 is a budget phone… Read more »

Sudhakar, could you please say your opinion about why Lumia 735 was not introduced in Indian markets.
My view is that if Microsoft is going with this kind of stupid marketing policies soon they will see a decline in their market share.This rise in Lumia’s sale i don’t think this last for long,they never going to overtake Android platform because open source projects were more matured in nature.

*LTE networks in India are not yet developed to an extent where LTE is required in mid range smartphones. Producing an LTE handset costs the manufacturer around 30-40$ more because of various reasons like patents and some others. That 30-40$ would end up as savings for the manufacturer if they dont involve LTE and help them better compete at pricing.

So you are trying to say that LTE patent in India will cost much more than Europe???Lumia 735 LTE handset was introduced in Europe which cost around Rs.18000 INR.I am only asking about one thing why Lumia 735 the mid priced phone with new features and greater specs was not introduced in India which was introduced in Europe and rest of the continents? If you are saying LTE deployment has not matured in India i am asking when will it get matured? Rjio spokesperson once told that they will start 4G when LTE device market gets matured in India.If both… Read more »

*None of the Lumia models released in India have ever supported LTE right from the very basic Lumia 520 to the advanced Lumia 930.None come with LTE support for India.Even Lumia 830 does not support LTE. *Now as far as I know patent fees do not vary according to country. While a lot of factors affect the cost of including LTE in a smartphone the majority of that cost is because of LTE related patents held by various companies. LTE does increase the price of a smartphone. Take the Moto G for example. The original Moto G last year costed… Read more »
