When Microsoft announced Windows 10 in late September, it unintentionally also managed to create a lot of confusion. You see, as described by Microsoft, Windows 10 isn t just an upgrade over the desktop operating system Windows 8.1 (Update), it is also the next version of its mobile operating system Windows Phone 8.1, in addition of being the platform update for the Xbox One as well as IoT. But a few recent leaks suggest that Microsoft has plans to name the next version of Windows Phone as Windows Mobile 10.

Windows Mobile brand name is interesting, to say the least. If you remember, until 2010, Windows Mobile was the official brand name for Microsoft s mobile operating system before it was changed to Windows Phone 7. And now it seems the company has plans to use the same moniker again. Also Read - Motorola Edge S Pro with 144Hz display, 108MP camera launched: Price, features
First spotted by Nokia Power User, the LinkedIn profile of a program manager working at Microsoft has mentioning of Windows Mobile 10 in the job description. The said employee had also worked in Windows Phone 8.1 project.
Adding weight to that possibility is a couple of references of Windows Mobile 10 in the build 9901 of Windows 10 which leaked earlier this month. We will hopefully get an official confirmation on this at an event on January 21 where Microsoft is expected to talk about the consumer-oriented features of Windows 10 and unveil its mobile SKU.
