The preview version of Windows 10 for phones will reportedly be released in a couple of days.

Nokiapoweruser had earlier reported, via its sources, that the technical preview for phones will be released within 2-4 weeks from 21 January, which is opposed to Microsoft's given schedule for late February.

A new disclosure from an anonymous tipster, quoted by the site, now asserts that the first preview build of Windows 10 for phones will be out on the 4th of February. Considering this release timing is too early, take this information with a pinch of salt.

There is a good chance that Microsoft might release the preview build soon, as only a few days ago Microsoft had pushed out an update for the 'Phone Insider' app that will allow registered Insiders to receive pre-release OS updates on their phones.

The name of the app is now 'Windows Insider' which hints that Microsoft is planning to have the Windows name across all platforms of Windows 10.

The update for Windows Insider now offers users the option of logging in with their Microsoft account, after registering as a Windows Insider. If you have already registered for your Windows 10 desktop, you are ready to go.

The download link for the Windows Insider app is provided below. When you try installing the app, you will be greeted with a message that reads, "We were not able to find a preview build," and about the 'system requirements'. This, however, will not be an issue as the app will support all Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices, though you need to be running the latest build of Windows Phone 8.1.
