Xiaomi Windows 10 tablet might launch later this year

Xiaomi Mi Pad Android tablets might soon get Windows 10-loaded siblings

While Android Xiaomi smartphones already got their own Windows 10 Mobile ROM image, it looks like the next-gen Mi Pad tablets will come loaded with Windows 10.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
