Windows 10 Mobile Build 10240 on video

Windows 10 Mobile build 10240 en un Lumia 640 XL

Its been a long wait of nearly a month since the last Windows 10 Mobile technical preview. Today builds of Windows 10 Mobile 10240 for the Lumia 640, 640 XL and 930 leaked in USA, and above we have a video demo of the OS by an intrepid Windows Phone user who installed it on their Lumia 640.

The video shows some Project Astoria system files, which also reveals a Linux subsystem, and some changes to the notification centre which brings it closer to Windows Phone 8.1.

Project Astoria holds the potential for drastically lowering the bar for supporting Windows Phone by software developers, and it appears that it is rapidly maturing.

Unfortunately Build 10240 will not be released to Technical Preview users, as Gabe Aul said it had blocking bugs which made it impossible to distribute. It does seem however that a new built is not far off anymore.

Do our readers spot anything else new in the video? Let us know below.
