Install Windows 10 mobile preview version if you can't wait till the final release during end 2015

Windows10 Mobile preview build Home ScreenOfficially Windows 10 operating system (OS) got released for PCs/ computers on 29th July 2015 and it has been receiving great positive reviews. It seems to be a runaway success as it is said that it has got both the advantages of the Windows 7 and Windows 8 & 8.1 combined.

The mobile version is still under development but for those interested in using the 'Mobile Insider Preview' version, Microsoft has officially stated their position about which phones will be supported by Windows 10 mobile that is going to be released in a few months.

The clue what we can get from the following information found on Microsoft's official site is that all those phones which are eligible for 'Mobile Insider Preview' program will be most probably supported by Windows 10 Mobile full version that is rumored to be released during November 2015.

But there are some minimum specifications needed for this upgrade to Windows 10 mobile. They are that the phones shall be running latest update 8.1 Denim version and they shall have a minimum RAM of 1 GB and a minimum of 8 GB storage space on the phone. Almost all the new Lumia models released of late during end 2014 and 2015 have about 1 GB RAM and a minimum of 8 GB storage space apart from the extendable microSD storage space ranging from 32 GB to 128 GB.


Our team has tested the Windows 10 mobile preview version on some Lumia phones. Lumia 435 received the update but it was stuck while updating the software. So we have rolled back to the previous full version of Windows 8.1 Denim using the 'Windows Phone Software Recovery Tool' which is available for free download from Microsoft's websites.

For testing the "Windows Mobile Insider Preview" you need to download the "Windows Insider" app from the Windows store.
