Microsoft is continuing to flesh out its plans for Windows 10, with the company confirming today that there will be seven different SKUs of the platform. Of course, our primary concern is the mobile oriented version, which will be ushered in later in the year as a replacement for Windows Phone 8. It has been assumed that either Windows Phone 10 or just Windows 10 would be used for the name, but it will actually be called Windows 10 Mobile Microsoft announced.Windows 10 Mobile will be the version of the platform that runs on smartphones and any tablet up to a size of 8-inches. It will look and have much the same way as full blown Windows 10 and will come with a feature called Continuum, which is actually pretty exciting. Continuum allows the user to hook up a large screen, keyboard, and mouse to their smartphone and use it as a PC. The new platform will also come in an enterprise edition where companies and businesses can license the platform for numerous devices.
"Windows 10 Mobile is designed to deliver the best user experience on smaller, mobile, touch-centric devices like smartphones and small tablets. It boasts the same, new universal Windows apps that are included in Windows 10 Home, as well as the new touch-optimized version of Office. Windows 10 Mobile offers great productivity, security and management capabilities for customers who use their personal devices at work. In addition, Windows 10 Mobile will enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen."-Microsoft
