    If you have a link to that it would be appreciated. Otherwise I think you must have misunderstood that.

    W10 OS is the same on mobile and PC. On PC it supports both 32 and 64 bit. I don't see why mobile would be different.

    windows 10 mobile wiil only support 32 bit operation .check Hardware specifications on wiki .
    Clearly listed : -

    Hardware specifications :
    Minimum specifications for Windows 10 Mobile devices are similar to those of Windows Phone 8, with a minimum screen
    resolution of 800x480 (854x480 if software
    buttons are in use) and 512 MB of RAM.
    Owing to hardware advancements and the
    operating system's support for tablets,
    screen resolutions can now reach as high as
    QSXGA resolution (25602048) and further,
    as opposed to the 1080p cap of Windows
    Phone 8. The minimum amount of RAM
    required is dictated by the screen's
    resolution; screens with a resolution higher
    than 960540 require 1 GB of RAM, screens
    of 1440900 and higher require 2 GB,
    20481152 and higher require 3 GB, and
    25602048 and higher require 4 GB.[47]
    As with Windows Phone, Windows 10
    Mobile supports ARM system-on-chips from
    Qualcomm's Snapdragon line, adding
    support for the 208, 210, 615, 808, and 810.
    The operating system will also introduce
    support for IA-32 system-on-chips from
    Intel and AMD, including Intel's Atom x3 and
    Cherry Trail Atom x5 and x7, and AMD's
    Carrizo. Although some of these supported
    chips are 64-bit, Windows 10 Mobile will
    only support 32-bit operation.[47]

    I did read it. The reference is an article. The only place I've found that information is in articles. I haven't seen anything official from Microsoft anywhere. Not knocking the article writers I'm sure they got their info from somewhere.

    Not arguing with you but I think I'll wait until the RTM comes out to see what's on offer. If it's not 64 bit right away I'm sure it will be eventually.

    It's not a big deal really but I'm sure some will find a problem with it...

    Not really an issue until a device manufacturer decides to use a 64-bit chipset and wants to run 64-bit Windows on it. Then I am sure Microsoft will work with them.

    Some of the processors allowed in the spec are 64 bit. The article quoted in the Wiki state the they will run in 32 bit mode instead of the 64 bit mode, apparently.

    I'm all for 64 bit processors. Have been since I first heard of them back in the 90s. Thing is, most software isn't written to support 64 bit so are not optimised but there are some advantages regardless which may increase speed.

    Since more and more phones are getting 64 bit processors I guess we'll see what happens. You of course need programming tools that will allow you to take advantage of those processors.

    No reason for 64-bit smartphones just yet, although I expect that to change within the next year or two. Most of the flagship devices right now have ~3 - 4 GB of RAM, so utilizing 64-bit computing wouldn't be necessarily beneficial. Besides, hardware support for 64-bit mobile chipsets are still limited.

    The fact that Windows Mobile 10 will be able to run in a x86 chipset is interesting enough. Basically opens the door to being able to install any Win32 program on your phone.
