Microsoft Details Windows 10 Versions
Microsoft today said it will offer seven versions of Windows 10, including one tailored specifically for mobile phones. The versions are called Windows 10 Home, Pro, Mobile, Enterprise, Education, Mobile Enterprise, and IoT Core. Each version caters to a specific user-base. The mobile version of Windows 10, says Microsoft, "is designed to deliver the best user experience on smaller, mobile, touch-centric devices like smartphones and small tablets." Windows 10 Mobile includes all the same universal apps available to other versions of the platform, such as productivity tools, security, and management capabilities. One of the biggest features is Continuum, which will let people use their smartphone as a full PC when connected to peripherals such as a screen, keyboard, and mouse. Microsoft said the full versions of Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows 10 Pro will be a free upgrade for one year to compatible Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Some versions of Windows 10 will reach 190 countries this summer. The timing for the mobile version of Windows 10 has not yet been defined.
