A company known for their software and OS domination, Microsoft has slowly been moving towards the hardware devices over the recent years. The company has been coming out with some really impressive devices in the Surface series, but the same cannot be said about their mobile phone devices. There has been a major need to improve them, and the Windows 10 Mobile OS update seems like a good way out for the 40 year old giant. Microsoft has been coming out with several updates and upgrades for their devices over the years, and they have now released the Windows 10 Mobile OS Update for the users of their older Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices.
These users were Nokia users who Microsoft inherited after the Nokia Mobiles takeover.
The Windows 10 Mobile OS update came out for the users of many older Nokia Lumia phones such as Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, 435, BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q, and the MCJ Madosma Q501 devices.
There has been quite a controversy over this selective release as the users of other popular devices such as the Lumia 520, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1320 are upset that their devices have not received this update. Microsoft has explained why this selective release was made in their blog, saying:
“This list includes a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices and does not include some devices that are currently running Windows 10 Mobile in the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program. As Windows 10 delivers significant new innovations, many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience. Our goal is to only offer the Windows 10 upgrade to devices that we are confident can continue to deliver a good customer experience,” the company said.
