Mobile operators to get Windows 10 Mobile “this summer”, says Microsoft

Windows 10 Mobile may not launch before November

Windows 10 roll out is going on in its full force, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about Windows 10 Mobile. We’ve heard a number of times in the past that Microsoft is aiming for a September/October timeframe for the launch of Windows 10 Mobile, but a new report surfacing from South African publication iafrica (via Tech Radar) says that it may not launch before November. 

Microsoft SA’s Anthony Doherty revealed some information about the launch of Windows 10 Mobile while talking to iafrica about the Windows 10 roll out. As for Windows 10 Mobile launch, Doherty hinted at November timeframe, without going into much details about the exact availability.  There’s a possibility that he may just be talking about the availability of Windows 10 Mobile in South Africa, but let’s wait see what Microsoft has planned for the launch of the mobile operating system.

“Obviously, there’s some duplication in engineering, sales and marketing, but it doesn’t change our strategy around mobility. Windows 10 Mobile is coming and it’s coming strong,” Doherty said. “Our core platform is Windows 10. It’s mobile in nature, not just the device, but the experience people will have. So there’s a big emphasis on the… mobile phone side of it. But there’s more thunder on that coming later in the year.”

The folks at TechRadar also managed to get in touch with Microsoft regarding this and received the following response.

“We will release Windows 10 on mobile to our mobile operators this summer and our customers can expect to see Windows 10 on their mobiles later this year. We will have more to share on various editions of Windows 10 prior to its availability.”

We can expect more regular Windows 10 Mobile preview builds now that Microsoft is done with Windows 10, and hope the software giant doesn’t take too much time on the mobile version of the operating system.
