Microsoft to unveil Windows 10 Consumer Preview in January 2015: Report

By  | 

Recent reports suggest Microsoft could take the wraps off its Windows 10 Consumer Preview at an event to be held in January next year.

According to the Verge, the January event could see the Redmond elaborating on the consumer features of its latest OS, Windows 10, which probably will also include details about the upcoming major revisions set to surface with Microsoft’s first platform-unified operating system.

When Microsoft had unveiled its next Windows version back in September, it mainly showcased the developer-focused features of the OS, as well as some consumer-oriented features.

As per the report, citing sources familiar with the company’s plans, the late-January press event will be a separate standalone event where the software giant will showcase several new features, such as a new touch interface called Continuum, which will be added to the Windows 10 consumer preview version. The press event is expected to be announced before the end of the year.

The report suggests that the Redmond could even throw some light on to explain how Windows 10 will work on various platforms including smartphones, tablets, and the Xbox One consoles.

Alongside unveiling the Windows 10 Consumer preview, Microsoft is also expected to discuss their plans for the future of Windows tablets and phones as well as share some details regarding an upcoming Xbox One dashboard update.
The exact date of the January event is yet to be announced.
