Microsoft confirms Windows Blue upgrade for desktops and smartphones

Microsoft’s upcoming OS update scheme named Windows Blue, which will allow the company to have a low-cost Windows platform on a yearly update schedule is supposed to get underway later this year. Now, Microsoft has more or less confirmed the arrival of the upgrades through a job posting on its careers site.

Microsoft has called for a software development engineer to join its core experience team to work on the new Windows UI, representing most of what customers touch and see in the OS. The job listing not only mentions about Blue but also hints us on what we can expect from the OS update.
The update is very likely to focus on the UI and the way users interact with their computers. The Windows Blue upgrades are expected to be available in Q3 and it will be interesting to see what changes it has got to offer.
Similarly, another job posting confirms that the Windows giants will be bring their Blue upgrades to its Windows Phone smartphone as well. Microsoft is currently searching for a senior development lead, who will work to help realize the vision of building high quality excel app for Windows Phone Blue.
Unfortunately, there is no official confirmation on the timeline of the Blue upgrades for smartphones.
