Microsoft began the Windows 10 Technical Preview for Windows Phone smartphones last month with a select few Lumia smartphones being eligible for the preview program. The company has now expanded the Technical Preview to a total of 36 Lumia models.
Microsoft now allows owners of the popular Lumia devices such as the Lumia 1020, 1320, 1520, 520, 525, 530, 920, 925, 928, and also the newer devices such as the Lumia 430 and the Lumia 435 Dual SIM. However, there are still a few Lumia devices that are missing from the list, such as the Lumia 930. Also the company hasn’t included any non-Lumia smartphone in the list, not even the HTC One M8 for Windows.
Most Lumia devices were left out of the program initially due to the fact that the system partitions on most Lumia models weren’t large enough to install the Windows 10 Technical Preview. Microsoft has now come up with ‘partition stitching’ that allows the company to dynamically re-size the system partition on devices.
Before you decide to try out Windows 10 on your Lumia, we would like to warn you that Windows 10 Technical Preview is quite buggy currently, so you shouldn’t really expect a stable experience after installing it on your device, for now that is.
