If you've been itchin' to take a look at the mobile version of Microsoft's new browser, now is your chance. The latest Windows 10 Technical Preview is available for phones, delivering Project Spartan and early looks at both its Reading List and Reading View features. As promised, the folks in Redmond also included Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar apps this time around -- both of which are now the default options for the mobile version of Windows. New Phone and Messaging apps are here as well, as is retooled software for Maps, People (contacts) and an updated App Switcher. Nearly all of the additions sport the redesigned UI that Microsoft has been showing off since Windows 10 was announced back in January.

Microsoft promised a couple of weeks ago that the next preview would be available on more devices. While that's true, owners of the Lumia Icon, Lumia 930 and Lumia 640XL will have to wait a bit longer as the company troubleshoots a scaling issue. Don't want to wait until this summer to test drive Windows 10 on your handset? Sign up to be a Windows Insider so you can grab the latest build and future versions as they're released. If you're already registered and are experiencing download issues, Microsoft is working on a fix, so it might be best to hold off for now.
