Windows 10 Mobile coming in November says Microsoft executive

Windows 10 Mobile coming in November says Microsoft executive
If you're wondering when Windows 10 Mobile might be released, the most reliable information we've seen yet came today from a Microsoft executive in South Africa. Anthony Doherty, Windows and Surface Business Group Lead at Microsoft SA, told iAfrica.com that the new OS build could come during the "November timeframe."

Doherty also addressed some of the things that have been going on at Microsoft, such as the recent job cuts, which he said had to do with overlapping employees in engineering, sales and marketing. The job cuts, he said, "were long in coming.

For those Windows Phone fans upset because Microsoft has been writing apps for Android and iOS, Doherty says that this is not because the company is giving up on Windows Phone. He says that Windows 10 Mobile is not code complete and added that Microsoft wants mobile users to "get access to the toolsets they prefer and love, across any ecosystem. That's been our strategy all along."


If you're a Windows Phone user waiting for the update, circle the month of November for now. Future leaks will no doubt narrow that down quite a bit.
