Microsoft Leaks Lumia 650 Release Date In The US

Microsoft has introduced this phone with the Windows 10 Mobile OS, an OS that has been available only on a select few offerings as of now, and is a part of the Lumia 550 and Lumia 950/950XL phones, has now reached the Lumia 650 too.

SAIC and Fecteau are now in the early stages of upgrading roughly 9,600 computers from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

The Lumia 650 is the first Windows 10 smartphone from Microsoft for the year 2016.

About 22 million of those devices belong to business or education customers though Microsoft reports more than 76% of its enterprise and education customers are in active Windows 10 pilots. Users can plug their Windows 10 Mobile phone or tablet into an external monitor and plug in a keyboard and mouse and the device's user interface will scale up to resemble a "PC-like" desktop interface. We've already mentioned Windows Phone now sits at 1.1% global market share.

Emre Kosmaz stated that he established his latest venture Nex Computer envisioning the world where people carry only mini PCs and eventually smartphones which connect to any screen in the world to turn them into tablets, laptops and PCs. The CIOs of each branch would be allowed "limited waiver authority" for up to 12 months beyond the target deployment date; waivers beyond that 12 month period needed to be approved by Halvorsen, the memo said.

Among the leading reasons to upgrade to Windows 10, according to the IT executives we interviewed, are enhanced security, the return of the Start menu and the need to replace aging hardware. Though not an official confirmation, we can still take it as a hint and expect Windows 10 mobile release to be actually happening soon.

The Windows 10 Mobile upgrade is all about bringing Windows phones closer to Windows. Microsoft will hand over the update to carriers.

The Windows 10 Mobile update for Lumia devices comes with Mobile Continuum and Universal Apps system. The timeline is very aggressive and reflects the confidence that the organization has on Microsoft's latest operating system. Personalization options finally let users set a background photo to put, behind their Lumia phone's Live Tiles.

In fact, the small increases in usage this month - based on the data from both StatCounter and DAP - were indistinguishable from the other periods of growth that Windows 10 has experienced since its July debut.
