Microsoft is gearing up for another Windows 10 event later this month, and it looks like the company could put a big focus on smartphonesThe Verge reports that a preview of Windows 10 for phones and should be available before the end of Jan., following the release of an official Phone Insider app in the Windows Store this weekend.

Windows 10 is expected to help the firm create a "One Microsoft" software vision first introduced with Windows 8. That means a smartphone user interface that offers more unity with tablet iterations of the software, in addition to UI similarities to desktop versions. Windows 10 will also introduce the company's "Spartan" browser, which we expect to see during the firm's press event on Jan. 21.

If you're interested in trying out Windows 10 on your smartphone, you can head to the Windows Phone Store and download Microsoft's Phone Insider app ahead of the Jan. 21 event. It only works for company employees at the moment, but it should open up later in the month once Redmond starts offering previews for its new mobile operating system.
