Microsoft's Terry Myerson revealed today at the firm's hardware event that Windows 10 is now running on over 110 million devices. He also shared that 650 billion web pages have been viewed via the company's new Edge browser.
Windows 10 has been installed on more than 110 million devices since it was released on July 29th. That sounds like pretty good progress considering that Microsoft said it hoped to reach 1 billion devices "within two to three years" at the company's developer conference in April.

On top of that, Microsoft's Terry Myerson said that 650 billion web pages have been viewed on Edge, the company's newest browser, and users have streamed 120 years of gameplay from Xbox systems to Windows 10 devices.
Continuum for phones
In related news, Microsoft also announced its bringing its Continuum feature to phones. This feature will enable you to connect your Windows 10 smartphone to a larger screen, and use it like a PC. This will require the Microsoft Display Dock, this little squarish device connects to your phone via USB Type-C and features a HDMI and DisplayPort for interfacing with your screen plus three USB ports for accessories.

The new Windows phones
The big stars of the event were the new 5.2" Lumia 950 and 5.7" Lumia 950 XL, which start shipping in November for $549 and $649, respectively. Special features include adaptive antenna technology, octacore and hexacore processors and tablet-class liquid cooling.
