Windows 10 Mobile release to arrive for older Microsoft Lumia devices in February: Update

Finally the cat is out of hat. If you were among millions of people awaiting the arrival of Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile update on your Lumia devices, it will definitely come as a shock.

The Windows 10 Mobile update is not coming this week or even next week. A report in the SlashGear says that the release date for Windows 10 Mobile for older handsets has been further delayed. The leading technology blog claims that the update will not arrive before February.

It must be added here that the update was originally planned to be released in December, and people hoped they will get the update in the first or second week of the last month. Now when the first month of the new year is coming to an end we are told the Windows 10 Mobile release for Lumia devices has been further delayed.

The most important aspect is the fact that while the versions running on your handset will be optimised for a smaller screen it’s still just considered Windows 10. This means that apps and features will look almost similar on your phone to on your desktop. You get the full versions of Office, Word and PowerPoint and they will look and operate much the same as the desktop versions.The first report about the Windows 10 delay is based on a report from France. French carrier Bouygues Telecom has said that the release of Windows 10 Mobile has been delayed until late February “the earliest,” which means that Microsoft either has discovered a major bug in the operating system at the very last minute, or the company has more work to do before shipping it to Windows Phone devices. So wait gets longer for older Lumia handsets who were assured quick update launch once Windows 10 Mobile was out.

A few weeks ago T-Mobile Germany said that the updates will be available for the following handsets
Microsoft Lumia 950 01078.00027.15506.02027 Windows 10 mobile build 10.0.10586.29
