Microsoft Working on Software to Convert Android Phones to Windows 10
Microsoft has announced that it is looking at developing a software to convert Android phones to Windows 10 during the confirmation of the news that Windows 10 will be going on sale in the market this summer.
Microsoft was making an announcement about the possible launch of its much awaited Windows 10. The Redmond-based company has said that Windows 10 will be on sale this summer. Just at the close of this announcement, Microsoft said that it is testing the Windows 10 with Xiaomis Mi4 Android Smartphone. This has fuelled thoughts in many techs crazy people that Microsoft is looking to partner Xiaomi phone manufacturer. Xiaomi was quick to deny this and said that the company is just giving a mere assistance to this trail by Microsoft.
Both Microsoft and Xiaomi did not divulge more details or specifications about the trial of Windows 10 software. But, if you read between the lines, you can come to a conclusion that the software effectively will override Android and turn the Xiaomi Android phone into a Windows 10 phone with full end Microsoft services.
The software will not offer the dual boot option that was tried earlier by Microsoft, but this will be an ROM based on Windows. This ROM would go beyond the Microsoft Android apps and will offer a Windows-like experience on an Android phone. This is a very powerful perception and there is no surprise in Microsoft trying this new concept out in China, where most of the phone users are prone to install ROMs.
Microsoft will be looking to extend this software use to more devices after it has tasted success with this experiment. The company has also hinted that it would announce about full availability very soon. But, for the time being it is starting with Xiaomi.
