    I am pretty sad by this. Very much expected a launch date for Windows 10 mobile update . But hard luck. Whereas on the other side Marsmallow and iOS are out . Feeling neglected.

    Yeah, I'm kind of bummed about it as well. I might as well just get the latest beta build. Do you guys think it is good enough to use for a Lumia 640 daily driver?

    Seconded, one of the primary reasons I watched the event was to see the release date for this.

    I feel the same way I might take the plunge into beta build again with a 640 XL.
    I had it on a 1520 months ago and hated the performance, has it come a long way?

    I would think it would have to launch at around the same time the 950/950 XL launch.

    I'd expect that they'll wait until after the release of new devices to roll out the update to older devices.

    yeah you can but there are many niggling issues and they will intensify with time. So better wait for final build.

    I have a feeling we are going to be using 8.1 for a good bit longer than what we were led to believe. I sure remember them saying all phones that could run 8.1 would get W10. Then some lists came out that left out alot more phones than it included. Seems all this work to get alot of apps working with W10 is not going to do much if most of the phones don't run W10. Right now I really don't know what to believe.

    But I thought this was a hardware event not Software?

    I'm now running it on my Lumia 640 and it is very smooth. The hardware in the 1520 is vastly better so hopefully it should run excellent for you. It even runs ok on my old Lumia 635 (the original, not the 1GB ram version they have now).

    Just wanted to ask about the launch date, cuz i thaught i missed it, but i see others asking already so...

    If you thing logically, it will have to launch just after the sales of 950 start. If 950 has it, it means it is ready. Curious about my carrier price tho, it doesn't seem too expensive. Just as i expected :)

    After much reluctance, I had to replace my 1520 because it just bricked on me one day. After much contemplation I decided to go with the 640XL because it was already compatible with Windows 10 mobile. I've been using it as my daily driver for about two months now, and I couldn't be more impressed with the build and more excited for what's to come. Despite the 1520 being of superior specs, the 640XL has handled WP10 so much better. Of course there are glitches here and there, but overall I am thoroughly sold on the direction of WP10 and would recommend the fast ring to anyone who has a 640XL. Hope this helps.

    I thought I might be a little put out that we didn't hear anything about Windows 10 Mobile but I find that I'm not. This was a pretty big presentation in itself and it covered a lot of ground, some of it mind blowing. I see how companies like google is taking steps in this direction because Windows 10 is a new day and it wasn't waiting for what "they" were doing. It is showing it has something to say and can live within its own skin. Word about Windows 10 mobile is coming next and it will be a show all on its own...as it should be.

    Exactly the same thing happened to me. Very impressed so far with W10TP on my 640XL.

    But they announced a phone with windows 10, showed software updates for the Xbox and new apps how could they not announce a release date for their new unified OS they are selling? It's not like they will have another big event to do this before the launch of the 950 and XL
