I don't know, but that would really surprise me. Given that the biggest changes to their GUI seem to be geared toward using a finger instead of a mouse, I think it's fair to assume that they're targeting the smartphone / tablet market.
I don't keep track of Windows phones so I have no idea how long it's been since they've released one. I only used to see Windows phones in the business environment and I can't recall the last time I saw one... Although I do see coworkers with Surface devices. Maybe that's where they're heading?
"Lumia" is the brand used for the Microsoft (previously Nokia) produced phones, so, at the moment, MS itself isn't producing any Windows 10 phones. However, the rumor is that they've discontinued the Lumia line to replace it with the "Surface" brand, which has been successul in their pro tablet and communication hub lines, especially in terms of enterprise adoption. http://hothardware.com/news/microsoft-ends-sales-of-all-lumia-wi...
riznick said: Desktop apps on a phone? I don't think most people would care, today. If they did, there would be an app for that. The idea is to combine it with the "Continuum" feature of Windows Phones, so you can plug your phone into a monitor, add a keyboard and mouse, and use it like a desktop: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3065895/windows/windows-continuum...
They're also looking to use it for low-powered Tablets. The Surface Pro line has been really popular, but their Surface RT line flopped since they couldn't run x86 apps. With x86 emulation on ARM, they can build cheaper, more efficiant ARM tablets that can still run legacy x86 apps: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3154417/computers/arm-pcs-with-wi...
Also, you can't really do this from an "app." Windows Store Apps simply don't have the low-level OS access necessary to pull this off. It really needs to be built into the OS. Hell, with the requirement of certain new Qualcomm processors, to make this emulation necessary may actually require specialized CPUs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_GlGglbu1U
