Update: The Economic Times is now stating that the statements regarding the launch of a Windows Phone device were miscommunicated, and that OnePlus is not considering a Windows Phone handset after all.
"[Carl Pei] was speaking to the fact that we are open to choice for our users and had even at one point spoken with Microsoft about perhaps having Windows as a choice for install on the One. We have no plans to make a Windows phone."
Original story follows.

Many people expected that Microsoft would call the next version of its PC operating system "Windows 9" since the last major release was called Windows 8. Microsoft surprised most folks by announcing a couple of weeks ago it would actually be called Windows 10. So what the heck happened to Windows 9? According to Microsoft's Windows marketing head Tony Prophet today, "It came and it went."
The Windows 10 Technical Preview that launched a couple of weeks ago has a number of features that are not immediately apparent. One of them is the new Share button in the operating system's File Explorer in an expansion of the Share feature beyond just Modern apps in Windows 8. Today, Microsoft put a spotlight on that feature in a blog post.
Sure October is the month for scary games, but plenty of non-spooky stuff comes out this month as well. You could just as easily call it the month for sports games, with NBA 2K15 already released (review coming tomorrow!) and EA Sports NBA Live 15 on the way. WWE 2K15 will arrive on Xbox 360 on the 28th (followed by Xbox One next month), so we can add sports entertainment to the list as well.
To help get wrestling fans excited for WWE 2K15, 2K Sports has just revealed the track list of the game's soundtrack. You'll find 12 licensed songs in-game to set the mood for punches and suplexes. The official WWE 2K15 soundtrack album features 8 of those songs, plus two exclusive tracks from John Cena and Wiz Khalifa, which is apparently a name and not a urinary disorder. The whole soundtrack was curated by our man John Cena, who happens to be a successful rap artist when he's not busting heads.
