Good news for Windows Phone users and Windows Phone developers

Microsoft will be updating the Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile by the end of the year. Developers are expected to have their apps ported over to Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft is looking at 2 to 3 years for increasing its share of
devices to a billion or more.

Windows 10 OS is the same whatever device you use, phone, tablet or PC. All apps will look the same on all the devices, quite a feat!

You can switch from one device to another without loosing anything, whether it is music, video, YouTube whatever.

This is a good news for Windows Phone developers using Nokia Icon which is tied to Verizon. Verizon has no news regarding when it will upgrade the OS. Nokia Icon will be the last phone to get the upgrade from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile.
