Microsoft has pushed out Technical preview for Windows 10 for phones, but Windows Phone flagship owners can’t run it yet. Only the following 6 devices are getting the first preview: Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 636, Lumia 638, Lumia 730, and Lumia 830. Whatever the reasons for this development, it sucks in at least two way.
First, the greatest Windows Phone fans and geeks are more likely to own a flagship e.e. Lumia 1520 and 930. They are shut out of the preview for now.
Two, the preview is also not available for the most popular Windows Phone smartphones, the Lumia 520 and its variants.
So, we see two categories of users who make up the strongest user base of Windows Phone locked out of all the action at the moment. It just sucks.
Is there any Lumia 830 owner out there who would love to swap their phone for my Lumia 930? I need to get my hands on the Windows 10 technical preview like yesterday.
