By now it is well known that Microsoft internally calls the next version of Windows Phone Windows Mobile.

The latest evidence for this is a resume entry by a Windows Operating Systems Group Program Manager, who after working on Windows Phone 8.1, now says his next project is Windows Mobile 10.

The consistent capitalization we have seen of this moniker suggests to me that this may also eventually be the public branding of the OS, which should help prevent consumer confusion between devices running full Windows 10 and those on phones and tablets running the desktop-less version of the OS.

Given that we started as Windows Mobile Power User this change would of course suit us very well, but how would our readers feel about this change in branding?
