    Theres a couple phones on the horizon I'm interested in short and long term like the upcoming Alcatel Touch Fierce XL and the rumored HP Falcon. Right now the insider program is mainly limited to lumias and maybe the htc one m8 as far as I know. Will they ever open it up to all devices? whats the hold up? its not like the insider program is limited to only surfaces on the pc. Jus was wondering before or if I grab a non lumia device

    Before Microsoft allow a phone into the Insider programme there has to be a form of recovery.
    The recovery is via the Windows Device Recovery Tool, where the rom is reloaded onto the phone in case of problems.
    Therefore if the OEM hasn't supplied the rom to Microsoft then the phone can't be part of the Insider programme.

    That's my understanding of it.
