The Verge: Microsoft may show off Threshold for Windows Phone on the 30th September

The Verge has revealed the date Microsoft is showing off the next version of Windows, Windows 9 code-named Threshold.

The software will be demoed at a special press event Microsoft is expected to  offer an overview of key new features of the upcoming operating system, with a technical preview ready for developers and enthusiasts.

The Verge also claimed Microsoft may demonstrating Threshold for ARM devices, which will be a combination of Windows Phone and Windows RT.

In June Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley said Threshold may bring side by side apps to Windows Phone, writing:

The combined Phone/Tablet SKU of Threshold won’t have a Desktop environment at all, but still will support apps running side-by-side, my sources are reconfirming. This “Threshold Mobile” SKU will work on ARM-based Windows Phones (not just Lumias), ARM-based Windows tablets and, I believe, Intel-Atom-based tablets.

Threshold is expected in 2015, with a public preview earlier than this.
