Windows 10 Phone preview

Microsoft published a new post in its blog which tells the next built of the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones will hit considerably more devices.

The company also enormously widens the list of supporting devices, the blog entry states that Microsoft is planning to release updates of Windows 10 builds more frequently for phones.

More frequent release of Windows 10 builds for phones to follow the similar tactic of that Microsoft recently framed out for desktop builds. On the subject of the rollout to more phones, the blog entry repeats that the past limited rollout was because of a partition size issue:

“As I wrote in the accompanying blog post, the reason for this is that we had to select from the set of phones that had sufficient system partition sizes configured by the manufacturer. This was necessary for us to be able to in-place upgrade the phones. I also talked about a feature we were working on called “partition stitching” that would allow us to re-size the system partition dynamically, allowing us to do the upgrade on a larger set of phones.”

Furthermore, Microsoft isn’t kidding about that more number of phones. Instantly, here’s the full list of phones that are going to be qualified for the next technical preview built of the Windows 10 for phones:
