Microsoft has already had a handful of devices operating on the Windows 10 system, but the first such device for 2016 is about to roll out.
The company has unveiled the latest Lumia smartphone – the 650 – and it’s looking like it could be an impressive device considering the details the company has released. Microsoft is nicely blending the lines of a work phone and personal device by making the Lumia 650 easy to set up for Office 365, the latest mobile versions of Word, Excel and OneNote while also ensuring the phone’s equipped with a “super sharp 5’’ HD OLED display that sits elegantly in a precision crafted, diamond cut metal frame. With lightweight design, a thin 6.9mm profile and 16 GB of internal memory,” as the device’s profile outlines.
Lumia’s vice president of device product management, Samuli Hänninen, explained the new phone has been created with the user in mind recognizing many of the Windows 10 phones are being used by business professionals. That market, certainly, is being targeted with the device.
“It’s in that spirit that we designed the Lumia 650 to bring first class to business class; giving our customers the best of Microsoft productivity and security, all wrapped in a beautiful slim package. By providing a consistent experience across PC and phone through the power of Windows 10, we think professionals and Windows fans alike will love using it every day,” he explained in a blog post.
The Lumia begins to be sold this week in Europe. There has been no announcement regarding North American availability as of yet.
