Microsoft Mexico reveals Windows 10 Mobile updates will begin February 29


The number of devices already running the newest iteration of Microsoft’s struggling mobile OS has been on a swift rise lately, with the introductions of the Lumia 650, Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL, NuAns Neo, Acer Liquid Jade Primo, and Vaio Phone Biz.

W10M adoption rates look pretty impressive too, despite widely reported bugs and a general sense of beta instability. Unfortunately, all those updates initially promised for Windows Phone 8.1-powered Lumias last year are yet to officially roll out, precisely on account of recent software builds disappointing in terms of stability.

But if you give Redmond a couple more weeks to iron out some last-minute kinks, the Lumia 930, 830, 735, 640, 640 XL, 540, 535, 532, 435, and 430 should finally be ready for their long overdue UI makeovers.

At least one or two handhelds on the above list will move to Windows 10 Mobile “starting” February 29 in Mexico, according to a Facebook comment from the hardware and software company’s local branch that leaves little room for interpretation.

Microsoft Mexico didn’t forget to highlight “not all devices” currently in circulation will be able to run the latest OS, though the ten we mentioned earlier are definitely eligible for the upgrade. Now it remains to be seen of course if the February 29 ETA turns out to be a regional or global thing.
