Microsoft is still on the stage announcing stuff around its biggest design and features overhaul in its modern history - the Windows 10 endeavor, which will run on phones, tablets, laptops and even TVs. Insiders will be getting a new build of Windows 10 as soon as next week, while the first Windows 10 build for phones will come in February. Nice.

Specifically what more did you expect then? Lot of hype no results... well, you're getting a seamless experience from screen to screen, cortana built into windows, xbox gaming on any windows device etc etc. Seems like lots of results to me.

I wasn't expecting a whole lot of change for Windows 10 for phones, other than the transition to a unified OS and universal app experience. Which, as it happens, are pretty huge changes in relation to where competitors currently stand. What I was expecting however, and where Microsoft really delivered, is on its focus of Windows overall. Microsoft sees a long term future in being the core platform used for all of these connected devices that we are going to have everywhere in our lives, not just phones. I feel like they are on a strong path to be a leader in the "internet of things" race, which is the next race after smartphones. It seems to me that they are focusing on the future, and will keep Windows Phones around until user demand catches up to the "internet of things" world vision, at which point it can finally be a leader. I don't think they believe Windows can be a smartphone leading OS until that point.

Really what they have done, is said, f you sales, our OS will run no matter what you do. Even if they have no market share, their OS is still mobile ready without the need to rewrite the base code. With the new unified app store and the way win10 will most likely handle code, companies new apps will work right in line on a phone without worry. So a wp user will have access to this even years from now. Considering wp now supports intel chips, this only goes further. All i need is skype and tablet...what do i need a phone for anymore? In fact i just might do this. For 13.99 you get unlimited calls to mobile and landlines. I should switch my phone to a data line and just pay that. That would make my line 23.99 instead of 80. Hell 13.99 is their world plan, they have a USA & Canada plan for 2.99
