“Windows 10 to Launch This Summer” is not news, but Microsoft just reaffirmed that. So We can expect to have it, sometime between July and September. I would say, July is likely, August is pretty sure. There will be free upgrade path from Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, even the pirated copies! No Windows RT yet, Microsoft has said it will bring some Windows 10 features to Windows RT devices, through Windows update, but don’t expect too much.

Xbox + HoloLens: How Can They Work Together?

CNN has reported Lenovo said it will start selling Windows 10 phones on China Mobile by mid-year. Well, this is news. Generally for Windows, there is RTM, then there is general availability, then there are devices with the new OS on the market. There are usually two months gaps between those milestones. Unless something has changed, if they are going to release Windows 10 devices mid year, which is most likely in July, then RTM should be done in May or before that.

Does HoloLens Have to Be Worn on the Head?

In any case, my general feeling is Microsoft has sped up the release pace of Windows 10, or they are being conservative in promises. But any way, looks like we are going to see a lot of Windows 10 devices before back to school. Those include PCs, laptops, and phones. How about these things:

  • Surface Pro 4
  • Lumia 940
  • HoloLens (of course)

I am ready to be impressed by Lumia 940 and HoloLens. We’ll see.
