Installing Windows 10 Technical Preview for Nokia Icon


This is really welcome news for Nokia Icon users (Verizon Specific) who will be getting the full OS upgrade much later than other carriers.

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 wants to see billion or more phones running Windows 10 within 2 to 3 years.

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.
