New screenshots of Windows 10 for smartphones surface online
Windows-centric tech blog windowspoweruser.com recently posted a few new screenshots allegedly captured from the Technical Preview of Windows 10 for smartphones. Among other things, the screenshots reveal that Windows 10 for smartphones will bring detailed quick-action toggles in the notification center. In Windows Phone 8.1 there are only 4 quick toggles available, but it looks like the number will be increased to 12. Highly similar features have been available on Android and iOS for a couple of years.
With Windows 10, your notifications will be synchronized to every Windows system, be it a tablet, a desktop, or smartphone. Once you've read a mail on your smartphone, it will no longer appear as a notification on other devices.
Windows 10 for smartphones will come with the full versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. All of the Office apps will be available on all Windows 10 devices, and will feature the same functionality but in a different graphics package that's specifically adapted for a desktop, a tablet, or a smartphone. Microsoft calls this concept Universal Apps, and it's a part of the company's bigger philosophy which aims to bring an unified Windows experience across multiple screen sizes.
The source of this leak claims that if no bugs are detected in this new build for Windows 10 for smartphones, Microsoft might release the Technical Preview for smartphones on Monday, February 9.
