Microsoft "Lumia with Windows 10" software update support page now live

Microsoft seems to be close to releasing Windows 10 software updates for various smartphones that are currently running Windows 8.1. The company today amended its official support website with information regarding software updates "for Lumia with Windows 10" - including details on how Windows 10 handsets will receive newer software updates (see the first source link below).

Unfortunately, this doesn't tell us exactly when Windows 10 updates will start being rolled out. However, this might happen next week, when Microsoft will likely also start selling the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, both of which run Windows 10 out of the box.

As previously reported, the first handsets to get Windows 10 updates are the following models: Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (versions with 1 GB of RAM), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930. Microsoft itself (not mobile carriers) will take care of Windows 10 updates for smartphones.

so they have a web page, but no OS and both of their new phones are MIA with little to no information on an availability date.

Yeah, not true, but if it suits you it's fine.

I have been using the preview on my M8 for windows, and it is now my daily driver. It needs to be cleaned up a bit, but otherwise it is good. But the one thing they need to add is Usb otg. It is so overdue.

Never used it, but can be helpful for others. The new continuum dock supports it, so I know the OS supports it.

The only reason why I didn't sell my Lumia 930 is that I wanna try the final build version of Windows 10. I think I'll

Let's see what build 10586 looks like. That's going to be the "Threshold 2" Windows release, and we should be getting it on the Insider Preview in the next week or two I think. It was released for the desktop today.

I was a Windows 8.1 insider I think it's time for me rejoin the Windows smartphone insider program again that way I will automatically get updated to windows 10 from the current insides build if it can run on my 2 year old plus Verizon Nokia Lumia 928

It can run on your Lumia 928. I have a Lumia 928 running the insider builds as well. We may not get the hardware-dependent features like Windows Hello or slow motion/4k video, but it is otherwise running pretty well now!

I own the Lumina 928 as well. The current build is working pretty good. I use it as my daily driver.

WTH, No mention of the Lumia 1520? Perhaps they will do these older models later..
