Tech News – Microsoft’s Windows 10 Smartphone Dream Still

Alive Thanks To New Android Device Although much of Microsoft’s current mobile

strategy is about getting users signed up to its cloud services no matter the mobile

platform they are on, there are some signs of life on the Windows 10 smartphone front

this week.T-Mobile is offering US customers the Alcatel just in Tech News

Idol 4S with Windows 10.The handset sports a Snap Dragon 820 CPU, 4GB

Ram, and a 1080p screen.If those feel like solid specs for an Android

phone, that’s part of Windows 10 new attraction for mobile developers – it supports the

same off-the-shelf hardware as its Android brethren.In fact, it supports off-the-shelf so much

that Android fans could recognize the Idol4S as an Android-powered handsets, or as the

reference design for BlackBerry’s recent DTEK60 smartphone.The Idol 4S’s party trick is one that is

going to become more prevalent over the next twelve months is that it is a VR-ready.T-Mobile is shipping the handset with a headset

that allows the smartphone to be used the screen and circuitry of a virtual reality

system.Given the low resolution of 1080p (at least

for VR) this is a nice addition, but I wouldn’t be considering this a primary reason to purchase

the handset.No, the important point for me in the Idol

4S with Windows 10 is the base hardware.The fact that Windows 10 can run on Android

hardware (or at least lightly modified hardware)is a strength.No longer does a manufacturer to commit to

a bespoke design or expensive tooling fora Microsoft-powered smartphone, they can use

what they already have.Windows 10 might not be the first name that

springs to mind with consumers, but the Idol4S keeps Microsoft at the smartphone table

– and if an enterprise partner wants or needs Windows 10 on a smartphone for its team

Microsoft and its partners can deliver.It won’t make an impact on the market share

dominance of Android, nor will it move the needle on Apple’s control of the profits

in the smartphone market, but it will be apart of Microsoft’s cloud-first strategy.The driving force in software is not the operating

system and Office, with other elements supporting them, the driving force for CEO Satya Nadella

and his team is in cloud-based Microsoft accounts,with support from services such as Office

365.

Thanks .
