    Does anyone knows will it be possible that Windows 10 mobile be installed on Intel chipset tablets like is Toshiba Encore first gen? I believe that this would be much better scenario than have it full Windows 10 installed on it, hopefully community agree with me.
    Cheers.

    W10M is highly unlikely to be made available for any of the existing Windows tablets. Neither for Intel nor ARM based devices.

    This is too bad, from experience point of view, experience with Windows Phone is much better then with Windows 10 TP on small tablet.

    The Lumia 1520 will likely get Continuum. The Lumia 2520, which has the exact same base hardware as that phone (minus the cell radio and add a much larger screen), should be able to run Windows 10 for Phones with very little effort.

    You would lose a load of functionality when compared to full Win8. The idea of turning my Encore into a big mobile phone is pretty horrid. Stick with Win8 for now, MS will provide an upgrade path for touch users in the not too distant future I'm sure. After all, that's no small market. They are planning to add mouse and keyboard support even to phones with W10, which says a lot about its touch functionality.

    What functionality do you think that you would lose?

    There are many things that the full OS can do which the phone can't, too many to list. Just for starters though, the lack of ability to install drivers is a major problem. Just like it was for RT.

    OK - It is possible that I've inadvertently posted into an x86 tablet thread regarding an ARM-based tablet because of a5cent's comment on ARM tablets. I think that is where we're disconnecting. :)

    Windows RT doesn't get driver updates (beyond the rare release via Windows Update). There is no maintenance involved. Other than the Office suite of software, the Windows RT experience is more "phone-like" than "PC-like."

    The Lumia 2520 is a Windows RT-based tablet. It is severely limited in comparison to an x86 "full" Windows tablet. That's always been a given and it was never expected to get "better". Microsoft has stated that Windows RT will not be "upgraded" to Windows 10. The point that I make is that the Windows 10 for Phone OS, with Continuum added to it, is effectively Windows RT on a Phablet / "Premium" Windows Phone piece of hardware.

    Considering that the Lumia 2520 has identical underlying hardware to the Lumia 1520 there is no reason to leave it in the dust. It should get a variation of Windows 10 for Phones, given what I've said above. I don't expect that it'll happen, but it would be a definite upgrade to the OS.

    This is exactly my position, as well. :)
