Microsoft shows off Windows 10 on a Lumia smartphoneIt's still in development, but Microsoft is building a version of Windows 10 for smartphones and smaller tablets.
I'm gonna show you a build that we are working on now. To roll out to insiders in a little while. This is a Lumia 1520 running a recent build of Windows 10. And I'm gonna show you. First, I'm gonna focus just on the core experience and give you a sense of how it aligns with the PC, how it'll be a great companion to the PC. So, let me unlock. And the first thing you'll notice, the start experience is quite familiar to people who've been using Windows phone in the past. But if you look there, you can see in the background I've got a. Full [UNKNOWN] customizable background image, a nice personalization feature that a lot of our users have been asking for. If I pan over to the right, you'll see we've promoted the recently installed apps right to the top of the app list, so they're really easy to find when you're installing and using apps. So another nice feature that we've been getting lots of requests for. I wanna show you the action center, which has added some new features, and is now synced up with the PC. I can do things like, dismiss single items that are shown here as notifications. I can now expand the action buttons, just like you saw on the PC. So I get a completely consistent and familiar experience going from one device to another.
