Windows 10 Mobile has finally arrived for many Windows Phone 8.1 devices, but quite a few smartphones have been left out.

However the company also mentioned that the BLU Win HD W510U, BLU Win HD LTE X150Q, and MCJ Madosma Q501 devices are also eligible for the Windows 10 Mobile update. Further, low end devices like the Lumia 435, will be updated to the new OS.

The aim of this article is to put all of that in perspective, as well as to show that even if your device isn't on that supported devices list, there's still hope, and you can still get Windows 10 Mobile.

The company said this move was prompted by customer feedback after the initial announcement, and should help "customers who have longer deployment timeframes to Windows 10", as well as "purchase modern hardware with confidence".

You can also use the Upgrade Advisor app and it will recommend which files you can transfer to an SD card (if you have one installed) or to OneDrive.

The desirability of the new builds should only continue; we'd expect to see new features revealed at Microsoft's Build developer conference in a couple of weeks. "And of course, if you choose to upgrade, then you will have 31 days to roll back to your previous Windows version if you don't love it".

In January, Microsoft said it would only offer software updates for "security, reliability, and compatibility" fixes for Windows 7 and 8.1 on Intel Skylake processors until July 2017. The volume of churn is too high and users are leaving the Windows Phone OS and are moving to Android and iOS devices.
