Windows 10 Mobile Update Release Expected Today

Carriers around the world are ready for the Windows 10 mobile upgrade since months. Is today the day Microsoft will roll out the long awaited Windows 10 mobile upgrade?

Carriers around to world have listed selected Microsoft Lumia smartphones tested for the Windows 10 mobile update since end of last year.

Update March 17: The Windows 10 Mobile Update is released.

Yesterday information from Telekom Croatia surfaced that pegged today, March 17 as release date for the Windows 10 mobile upgrade. Evan Blass at VentureBeat heard the same date. So far the Windows 10 mobile update has not been released.

Vodafone Australia just posted its weekly software update list that lists four Microsoft devices that are getting the Windows 10 mobile update. 

Vodafone lists the Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735 and Lumia 930 as completely tested. The support note states that Vodafone is awaiting confirmation of rollout schedule. Vodafone has posted this since about three month. The post does not indicate that anything would be different today. 

We have seen listings from Telekom Germany that have select Lumia phones market as ready for upgrade to Windows 10 mobile. Again this is the case since months.

Microsoft announced months ago that the following Lumia devices will get the Windows 10 mobile updates. The list include Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930. If that list is still holding up remains to be seen.

The Microsoft Lumia support tries to calm down customers on Twitter asking when the Windows 10 Mobile update is coming. They are not confirming that it will come today and only refer to the Windows 10 mobile page on the the Microsoft site.

If the Windows 10 mobile update is coming today it is likely going to be released at 10am PDT, the usual time Microsoft releases updates.

We will continue to monitor the developments around the Windows 10 mobile update today and update you if Microsoft is indeed releasing the highly anticipated upgrade. Windows 10 mobile is a big upgrade for users of Windows 8.1 phones, giving their outdated smartphones a new life.
