New Windows 10 preview for phones released with Spartan and more

Microsoft just announced that it is releasing a new Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones. Build 10051 includes plenty of new features but, even better, it also includes support for a much larger range of phones.

There are tons of things to check out. The release marks the first time that Microsoft’s new Project Spartan browser is making its way to mobile. Microsoft said it’s still a very “early version” but that you can test new reading view and reading list features and take a first look at how it will operate. For now, it’s still installed in addition to the existing IE11 browser.

Microsoft also includes new Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar updates, which feature a new user interface and support for swipe gestures. Also, the Messaging application has a new design and lets you “easily upgrade from a messaging conversation to a voice call with one click,” Microsoft said. Other apps, such as People and Maps, are also refreshed in the latest update.

Now the great news: Microsoft expanded support of the technical preview to include all of these phones:
