Microsoft, over the years, has been one of the biggest names when it comes to the markets of technology. The company has been around the industry of software and OS technology for over the past 40 years, and has been bringing forward some of the biggest changes as we know it to be. Off late they have been moving towards the hardware markets, and have managed to drag through them in the mobile phones division. However things are expected to now get better, as Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile OS has been gaining strength in numbers. A few weeks ago it took a major foot forward as the company now has an advantage in the number games, as Microsoft released the Windows 10 Mobile OS update for the users of the older Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices in March.
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.
