standard Breaking: Microsoft Unveils Windows 10 for Phones- for Devices Less than 8 Inches

DSC06509Microsoft have just pulled back the wraps on Windows 10 for mobile devices, a major puzzle piece in their unified ecosystem plan. Supporting Windows 10 on phones helps bring Microsoft closer to their dream of “one-ecosystem”, uniting apps across stores and making it easier for developers to create for their platform.

As Joe Belfiore took the stage to announce Windows 10 for phones, he said       :

“Windows 10 has been tailored for devices depending on screen size, this is Windows 10 for devices smaller than 8 inches”.

Action center on Windows 10 for phones is synced to the PC, to avoid double notifications. Start screen has been tweaked with easier organization.
