We brought you news about the Windows 10 Technical Preview sometime back. Microsoft has finally released the same to the Windows Insider users last week. Latest buzz focuses on the Microsoft Spartan browser for smartphones. However, this Spartan version is still in its nascent stage. There are still certain issues around stability and more de-bugging needed before the preview is sealed.
What caught our fancy was the build 10051 bit of the Technical Preview. This allows addition of a partition stitching spec. With this feature, the Preview will be able to run on most Lumia handsets. However, owing to issues of screen scaling, the Preview will not be supported on the Lumia 640 Xl, Lumia 930 and the Lumia Icon.
Microsoft is also working on a better Internet Explorer version—IE 11 besides the Spartan. While the latter will be the default browser, users can always access the IE from the Start Menu itself. Other new specifications that Microsoft has promised in its Build preview are-
- New Outlook Mail App and
- Revamped Outlook Calendar
- Connectivity to Office 365 and Gmail, Yahoo and similar accounts
- New Messaging App
- Quick Call access button
Besides new features, the maker has improvised the Cortana resolution, keyboard placement, Microsoft Band Sync and photo app. Top issues that Microsoft is working on are Camera Roll auto uploads Office Hub removal, Cortana-Bluetooth interaction and SD card app launches.
