Microsoft commits to a Windows 10 'flagship smartphone' for 2015

While Windows 10 in its phone form only got a partial look – expect to see more at MWC at the beginning of March – ahead of the highly anticipated preview builds pushing out, we did at least get a little snippet of information many Windows Phone users have been wanting to hear. Microsoft is committed to building a Windows 10 flagship smartphone later this year.

Of course, with Windows 10 not due for a while, there's no telling whether that means a new device that will launch with Windows 10, or whether it means a device that will launch before and be the poster child for Windows 10.

But a lot of people have been concerned about the lack of a high-end option, and this at least should put those concerns to rest. We might not like waiting, but at least we know for sure there's something to wait for.
