Windows 10 smartphone is the next version of Windows phone
Microsoft introduces Windows 10 smartphone, its the future of Windows phone in spar with Android and iOS platforms. Windows 10 will not just be the next version of Microsoft Operating System, it will also be the next generation of the next best Windows smartphone.
Microsoft surprised everyone today with the announcement that the next version of Windows is called Windows 10, not Windows 9 as most had thought.
But during the announcement Microsoft executives said that Windows 10 will run on devices with screen sizes ranging from four to 80 inches, raising an important question: is Windows 10 the next version of Windows Phone as well?
And the answer, given during the Q&A portion of Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement, is a resounding “yes.”

That doesn’t make it quite definitive that Microsoft won’t choose something like “Windows Phone 10” or “Windows 10 for phones” down the road, but it certainly makes it seem more likely that they’ll drop the “phone” and just called the OS “Windows 10” across all devices.
This shift was signaled earlier in September when Microsoft documents describing a gradual phasing-out of Windows Phone and Nokia branding was leaked online.
Microsoft wants Windows 10 to cover a huge range of devices and be the only operating system its users need.
“Our new Windows must be built from the group up for a mobile-first cloud-first world,” Microsoft Executive Vice President of Operating Systems Terry Myerson said during the Windows 10 reveal.
