Does "windows mobile" include tablets? RRS feed

  • Does Microsoft Surface tablets fall under the category "windows 10 mobile" or "windows 10 desktop" in the Windows Dev Center package submission form?

  • Hi FrodeNilsen2,

    Category classification depends on the architecture of the device.
    Usually a device with ARM architecture is in the mobile category, and a device with x86 or x64 architecture is in the desktop category.
    So if the Surface here has x86/x64 architecture, then it is in the desktop category. Surface Studio is in desktop category, for instance.
    More info about device family, you may refer to:
