If Microsoft is going to make the Windows 10 Mobile platform a success the company will need for manufacturers to back it. While Redmond will be holding out for major players to get behind Windows (wishful thinking we know), the first Windows 10 Mobile smartphones are starting to be released, like the Yamada Denki EveryPhone.The EveryPhone is from Japanese company Yamada Denki and while it is a rather nondescript Windows handset, it does come with one standout feature. It is the thinnest smartphone ever made for the Windows platform at 6.9mm, and while there are thinner devices on Android and iOS, this is close enough to be a contender. It is certainly a step up from the previous thinnest Windows device, the Lumia 830, which was a rather unimpressive 8.5mm. As for specs, the EveryPhone comes with a rather low end package. It sports a large 5.5inch screen with 720p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, 32GB of internal storage, a micro SD card slot, a 13 megapixel rear camera, a 5 megapixel front facing lens, and a 2600 mAh battery. Fairly entry level stuff these days, and of course in some ways the Windows platform is the king of entry level with the lower end Lumia's being among the best budget smartphones on the market. Forget about it with the EveryPhone however as the cost is an eye-watering 39,800 JPY, which is about $324. Any takers?
