  Hands on with Windows 10 build 10120
Time: 11:22 EST/16:22 GMT | News Source: Neowin | Posted By: Byron Hinson

This summer, Microsoft will release a new version of its operating system, Windows 10. The OS, which we have been covering diligently since last July, is quickly coming together and now I have been able to obtain the latest version to make its way outside the walls of Redmond, build 10120. At this point in the development cycle of Windows 10, its more about bug-fixing than adding new features. So it should not come as a huge surprise that there are not any unannounced major updates with this release.

Time: 11:20 EST/16:20 GMT | News Source: ActiveWin.com | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Get your best “back in my day” grumble face on: Solitaire and Minesweeper might’ve been good enough procrastination tools in times past, but Microsoft is getting hip to the times, and will pre-load Candy Crush Saga into its upcoming Windows 10. Anyone who’s looked up from their smartphone long enough on the bus, train or park bench knows that the addictive candy popping and dropping game from mobile game company King is the distraction of choice, and Microsoft says it’s definitely noticed.

  The LG Lancet joins Verizon's Windows Phone ranks
Time: 11:20 EST/16:20 GMT | News Source: TechSpot | Posted By: Byron Hinson

After spending the last four and half years solely focusing on producing Android handsets, LG has returned to the Windows Phone market with a new, budget smartphone exclusive to Verizon. The LG Lancet isn't hugely exciting from a hardware or software perspective. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC under the hood, alongside 8 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The display is a fairly mediocre 4.5-inch 854 x 480 IPS LCD, which isn't too out of place on a sub-$150 handset.

Time: 13:28 EST/18:28 GMT | News Source: TechCrunch | Posted By: Byron Hinson

The newly named ‘Windows 10 Mobile’ picked up an update from Microsoft today, including a number of new features and device support. The new build, 10080, also includes support for the first non-Lumia Windows Phone, the HTC One. Most important to the new build is its inclusion of a “first look” at the Windows Store for mobile. Microsoft is working to build a single store to support all Windows 10-based devices, to provide a better market for developers.

  Build 10080 of Windows 10 for phones arrives -- Universal Office apps now available
Time: 13:27 EST/18:27 GMT | News Source: BetaNews | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Microsoft doesn’t seem to know exactly what to call its version of Windows 10 for smartphones. It was called "Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones", and then yesterday, when unveiling the different editions of the new operating system, Microsoft called it "Windows 10 Mobile". Today, however, it’s back to "Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones", although in the official blog post announcing the latest release -- Build 10080 -- it’s also called "Windows 10 Insider Preview for phone". I guess you just have to take your pick. Hopefully the tech giant will have decided on an official name when it releases the finished version later in the year.

Time: 13:26 EST/18:26 GMT | News Source: PC Magazine | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Microsoft is taking a page out of Google's book with an announcement Thursday that it plans to start prioritizing mobile-friendly sites in Bing search results The upcoming changes, expected to begin rolling out in the "coming months," will indeed improve the ranking of mobile-friendly webpages, but Microsoft said its main goal is to bring you the most relevant results for your searches, regardless of whether that page is set up to work well on your mobile device or not. As a result, webpages that are "highly relevant" to a given query that are not yet mobile-friendly will not necessarily get penalized.
