Microsoft Opens Floodgates On Smartphones Supported By Windows 10 Technical Preview

Microsoft released its first public build of Windows 10 for smartphone on February 12. While Windows Phone users were excited at the prospects of testing out Microsoft’s next generation mobile operating system on their existing hardware, many were disappointed by the fact that so few devices were actually supported — only six devices were initially supported.

Well get ready, because Microsoft is about to turn those frowns upside down. In a posting on Blogging Windows, Microsoft’s Gabe Aul confirmed that the second public beta of Windows 10 would include a much larger list of supported devices. There are still some notable absences (like the Lumia 930, which isn’t supported currently due to a hardware bug), but a lot more people should be happy this time around.

There is also no word yet on if the next release will feature the Spartan web browser, which was shown off yesterday in leaked screenshots.
