Ever since Microsoft took over Nokia Mobiles, the Nokia Mobile users were both, confident as well as nervous. They were confident that now that they are directly under Microsoft, updates will be more frequent. They were worried because they wondered what if Microsoft favors the devices that they have created more than the older devices. However, the company has cleared all confusion now as they have now released the Windows 10 Mobile OS for the users of the older, Nokia Lumia devices.
The Windows 10 Mobile update was initially supposed to come out in late December of the year 2015, but it has now been announced in the middle of March, after being postponed thrice.
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.
Users of the Lumia 520, 1020 and 1320 devices have been discontent as they are not included in the list of devices which get this update. Microsoft has explained this omission on their blog, stating:
“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.
