Windows 10 may be officially launching on July 29th
, but Windows Phone fans know they have to wait longer before the Mobile version of the OS will get released. Luckily, we now have a much clearer picture of how long that waiting time will be.
We’ve known for a while that not all versions of Windows 10 will be launching at the same time. In fact, most versions of the OS, such as the Mobile, Xbox and Hololens editions, will be coming later in the year. But in a presentation to one of its partners, a Microsoft spokesperson produced a slide showing when the company is planning to launch Windows 10 Mobile.
According to the slide, seen above, both the enterprise and consumer versions of Windows 10 Mobile, should become available “late next quarter”. In regular terms that means a launch at the end of September.
The spokesperson was a bit less enthusiastic though, hedging the company’s bets and saying that the OS should come in October, or “possibly as early as September”.
