Microsoft is currently preparing the Windows Anniversary update which is set to be released on the 29th of July. The update will be the second big update for Windows 10 is going to include a long list of new features and improvements. Messaging Everywhere is only one feature to mention which will bring a universal messaging experience on all Windows device. The Anniversary update will be available this summer for all devices running Windows 10.
Now with new features the operating system needs more powerful hardware. Tough Microsoft has today updated the minimum system requirements for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, it is only slightly changing the requirements of display sizes. Devices manufactured by different OEM’s can now be as small as 7 inch when it comes to the display size to be eligible to run Windows 10. Windows 10 Mobile on the other hand can now be shipped with devices up to 9 inches. This allows OEM’s for example to ship one and the same device with either Windows 10 Mobile or Windows 10 if the display size is between 7″ to 9″.
If you imagine that the Nokia Lumia 1520 back than had a display with 6″, it is hardly imaginable that such a device is shipped with Windows 10. However, on the other hand 7″ could be just the right size to make the jump between handheld device and productivity tool. The nice thing about that is rather the margin which Microsoft is giving OEM’s here is fascinating than the screen size itself.
