Back in March Microsoft revealed that it will be working with Xiaomi in China to test Windows 10. Now a new video of the device running the OS emerges.
Microsoft made a smart move in an attempt to attract attention to its new Windows 10 OS for smartphones in China by establishing a partnership with Xiaomi. Since the orginal annoucement we had seen leaked images, but now a video showing Windows 10 on the Mi4 has been posted online:
Gizchina News of the week
From the video we can see the Windows 10 on Mi4 is still in its early stages, which makes sense, since the system is still in Beta even on Microsoft handsets. We can also see some of the system applications running on the device, the caller is working well, the message application, Internet Explorer, Windows Store and even Office are working flawlessly on the device.
Currently the OS should be available only to beta testers, but we keep our fingers crossed for an official public launch soon.
What’s your opinion on Windows 10? Would you like to see more Chinese phone makers embrace the alternate mobile OS?
Thanks to Simon for the tip!
This is great for the 2 people with Microsoft Stockholms syndrome.
I would love to see Chinese phones embrace the alternate mobile OS. We are talking about Ubuntu right?
I really want to see Ubuntu on a quality spec’d phone. The last I heard is that Ubuntu plans to release a true international phone once they get everything in place.
Meizu’s MX4 has an Ubuntu version and there are various rumors that the MX5 will have an Ubuntu or dual boot version.
Hope they will release for Mi Note too. I would be curious to try. Never had a Win Phone before 🙂
Windows noooooooo………… gnu/linux!!!!!!!!!!!
This is quite awesome; Windows Phone > *^10
