The Microsoft Windows 10 release date for desktops, laptops and tablets is set for July 29. And now, the company is aiming to make it big in the Asian market by rolling Windows 10 Mobile ROM for Android devices. The Redmond, California, giant has released the ROM for Xiaomi MI4 handset owners.
Lin Bin, Co-Founder and President of Xiaomi shared the news on Chinese social networking website Weibo. The image shared by Bin shows Windows 10 Mobile software running on an Mi 4. The announcement comes a week after a Microsoft Operating System Software Engineer who goes by the alias The Renaissance Man posted on Weibo that a public release of Windows 10 for Mi 4 is coming on Thanks giving Day.
In March, on the sidelines of Windows 10’s release date announcement, Microsoft also said that it had partnered with Xiaomi to test Windows 10 for phones. At the time, the company said that it would be testing Windows 10 with select Xiaomi Mi 4 power users in China.
“Through a new program with Xiaomi, one of the top smartphone distributors in the world, a select group of Xiaomi Mi 4 power users will be invited to help test Windows 10 and contribute to its future release later this year”, the company had then noted in a blog post. “These power users will have the opportunity to download the Windows 10 Technical Preview – installing it and providing their feedback to Microsoft”.
