Microsoft today released the Windows 10 Technical Preview for PCs and tablets slightly ahead of schedule. With that update, many people are inquiring about the Windows 10 version for Windows Phone.

Microsoft was very clear on this point earlier this week during their 2-hour press conference: February.

Indeed, heading to the Windows Insider Program website on your phone (with Mobile mode enabled in settings) yields the above images for users. The news recapitulates what is already known that Windows 10 through the Insider program is on the way.

Will Microsoft release it in early or late February? We have to wait and find out, but just know it is close.

Thanks, Kiran K., for the website tip!
