Xiaomi Windows 10 tablet might launch later this year
Although Xiaomi did not release new Mi Pad tablets for quite a while, the company said it over and over again they are not giving up this market anytime soon. Since the global tablet market has been going down for over a year now, keeping updates away for a while sounds like a natural decision. On the other hand, Windows 10-powered tablets might push sales up later this year, and it seems like Xiaomi decided not to miss this train.
Quoted by Gizmo China, well-known Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang revealed that a new Xiaomi Mi tablet will launch in the third quarter of 2015, and that will ship with Microsoft Windows 10. However, he did not mention if the tablet will use the standard Windows 10 or the mobile edition that Microsoft will apparently offer as an update to a group of ten Lumia smartphones before anything else. Unfortunately, Windows 10 Mobile has no official launch date yet.
Xiaomi customizes the Android firmware on its devices, so they might choose to do the same with Windows 10. The upcoming Xiaomi Windows 10 tablet could be unveiled as soon as August 16 when the company usually announces a new MIUI version.
