Rumours of Microsoft tying up with Xioami has been floating around for quite a while now. It all started with the fact that the next Redmi may come with Windows 10. Once that rumour failed, the next one came - stating that the company is in talk to tie up with Windows to make a flagship device. But unfortunately no such device has made it to the market yet.
But according to new leak dug up by Gizchina, we believe that the company is planning to launch a new tablet running Windows 10. Hence we may probably see the next gen of Mi Pad to come in two variants - Windows and Android. According to the leak though, there's a possibility that the device may come with dual boot. Personally I doubt that though. This had happened previously too where Microsoft has heavily objected to a dual bootable device. In fact they didn't allow the dual bootable Canvas Laptab to launch. The Laptab finally launched as Windows only convertible. 4
Recently though, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group, of Microsoft, posted an image of the Xiaomi Mi4 running a Windows 10 build 10240. He followed it up with a tweet stating that the Windows Mobile Insider program with the Mi devices will start in China in the coming few weeks. He also quoted, "We intend to start our insider program in China with Xiaomi phones in the next few weeks... The software is running very nicely on these!"
Nevertheless these leaks don't give any conclusive evidence regarding a Windows Mi Pad as of now, but we feel that this might be a possibility.
