Yes, Windows 10 is the next version of Windows Phone

Microsoft has confirmed that the just announced Windows 10 is also the next major version of Windows Phone as well, which would also confirm that the desktop-notebook PC operating system is merging with the mobile OS..

In a Q&A following their presentation in San Francisco today, Microsoft's operating system execs Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore were asked, "Is Windows 10 the next version of the phone operating system?" The answer was simply, "Yes". Belfiore then added, "The best way to think of it, it will be a natural step forward from the Windows 8.1 model." However, he also said that the phone version of Windows 10 won't have a desktop user interface.

So there you have it. The next version of Windows Phone will in fact be Windows 10. It's going to be a very, very interesting 2015 for fans of the platform and we should learn a lot more about Microsoft's plans for the mobile port of Windows 10 next year. In the meantime, is this good news or bad news for Windows Phone users?
