Four months after unveiling a preview of Windows 10 for desktops, Microsoft says a smartphone version of the operation system is now available.
If you have one of a half-dozen Windows phones, that is. The roster of devices Microsoft supports for the preview is limited so far to Lumia smartphone models 630, 635, 636, 638, 730, and 830.
“This is the earliest publicly available preview we’ve ever done for Windows on phones,” Microsoft’s Gabe Aul says in a blog post. “This preview is still very much under development and you’re going to see some rough edges.”
Aul said the phone version is less polished than the PC preview released in October. Microsoft’s officials said last month at the Windows 10 consumer update that a phone preview would come in February.
But Microsoft’s prediction didn’t entirely come to pass. Operating systems chief Terry Myerson said at the time that the phone preview would be released sometime in February — after the Seahawks won the super bowl.
