Some Xiaomi smartphones can be updated to Windows 10

Windows 10 will be one of the biggest software releases this year – it will be a versatile operating system that will be able to run on PCs, tablets and smartphones with no problems. While most people expect to be able to buy a Windows 10 smartphone by the end of the year, Microsoft goes one step further – the company will try to convince other smartphone makers to offer upgrades to existing smartphone operating systems that will install Windows 10 on them.

This is not an impossible task as most smartphones have the same hardware inside but different operating systems. The Chinese Xiaomi might become the first company to partner with Microsoft in this task – later when Windows 10 gets released Xiaomi will most likely release Windows 10 as free downloadable software for users of Xiaomi Mi4 smartphones, which run Google Android as of now. In a few words users will be able to erase Android and then install Windows 10 on their Mi4 handset when the time comes. Despite the fact that currently this trick can be performed on a single smartphone only, later many more smartphones will be able to perform the jump from Android to Windows 10.

It is now interesting to see what the answer of Google to this threat will be.
