Microsoft has reportedly been working on integrating various platforms into a single OS structure via its upcoming Windows 10. The company even went on to say the Windows Phone OS-based devices will be discontinued. Therefore, all the devices like smartphones, tablets, phablets, laptops and even desktops will reportedly run the upcoming Microsoft Windows 10 OS.

It is worth noting that the desktop version of the Windows 10 is in public beta-testing stage. Nonetheless, the mobile version of the Windows 10 has not been spotted so far. But now, interested readers can check out the new look of the Windows 10 on smartphones. New images from Windows Phone Italy show the homescreen on a Windows 10 phone, in addition to showing an app drawer. Both images feature background wallpapers that cover the entire display behind the tiles. Notably, with the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1 OS, users can choose a background image to fill the standard Windows tiles, notes Phone Arena.

On the other hand, Microsoft released its health and fitness tracker "Band" before the 2014 holiday season. The dirt-cheap gear was both well-received and had high user demand. But then latest report states that problems related to Bluetooth and syncing capabilities of the Microsoft Band have emerged, according to Benzinga.

Last week, Microsoft's Matt Barlow discussed the aforesaid problems with "Microsoft Band," when talking about company's strategy for 2015 in CNBC. In Matt's own words, "We are excited about the band and we have definitely seen a lot of people -- iPhone users, Android phone users, Windows phone users -- come on in, take the band home and use it." He further acknowledged, "So, I am sorry to hear about the challenges...but a bunch of other people are using those devices are having a great time being fit with the Microsoft Band."

He also pointed out that any new product will go through software updates and usability updates and that Microsoft is working on them. He further stated that he could visualise Microsoft Band working seamlessly with all smartphone types without any issues in the near future. Matt concluded by saying, "If you are using the heart rate tracking capability 24-hours a day, it is a great thing to use."

It is worth mentioning that, the Microsoft Band is priced at only $199. Potential buyers can now purchase the gadget from Microsoft retail stores across the U.S.
