Even though Windows 10 is already available in preview for desktop computers and even some Lumia smartphones, one of the biggest mysteries is how Microsoft’s mobile operating system will adapt to small tablets. At the moment you don’t have the option to test it on existing models, so we didn’t really have a clear idea until today.
We get the first leaked screenshots of Windows 10 running on a small tablet of unknown dimensions, and yes, the tablet model wasn’t disclosed either. You’ll notice that this is a very early beta, as the Start screen is not yet final. As we expected, there is no desktop mode on this tablet, opening the door to the previous claims that the phone version of the OS would do the work on these types of tablets. We do see that the included apps scale accordingly, but again, we’re too early in the game to draw any conclusion. All we know for now is that Bluetooth keyboards and mice will be supported.
We should learn more about the future of Windows 10 on small tablets in the next few weeks.
