Windows 10 Mobile launch to start on February 29

Windows 10 logoPrevious reports indicated that Windows 10 Mobile could launch in mid-February, but in a recent post on Facebook, the Mexican branch of the software giant has revealed that the new operating system will roll out for Windows Phone devices in the last week of this month.

This isn’t the first time when Microsoft posts information regarding the Windows 10 Mobile release on its social account. However, the previous time the company did this, it was a false alarm, so we can’t fully trust this new date just yet. We’ll believe it when it happens, especially given the fact that long-time Windows Phone users are getting tired of waiting and looking for alternative platforms.

But as WMPU notes, the Microsoft Mexico post reveals that not all devices would get the upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile on February 29, and this is very likely confirmation that Redmond is still planning a staged release. In other words, only a few models would receive it at first while the others are expected to get the upgrade as part of a second wave.

Windows 10 Mobile launch to start on February 29

While the entire Windows Phone community is waiting for Microsoft to push the release button for Windows 10 Mobile, insiders are also expected to receive a new preview build either this or next week, as the company continues work on the platform.

If the February 29 date is accurate, this could be one of the last if not the last build before the rollout begins, but it’s worth mentioning that the Windows Insider program will continue beyond this date too. Microsoft wants to keep on working with insiders on the operating system, so future updates, including the Redstone release coming in mid-2016, will be developed with help from users.

Keep in mind that there’s still no official announcement from Microsoft that the February 29 is real, so take this with a pinch of salt for the time being.
