Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 with dual-boot option : Windows 10 and Android
Update : Mi Pad 2 is officially launched.
a month ago Xiaomi already showed its interest to launch tablet with Windows 10 OS. Now Xiaomi has posted a teaser image that indicates something great. Xiaomi has put X 2 sign in front of its upcoming tablet.
X 2 indicates two possibilities that are as follows:
- The device may support dual-boot, Windows 10 + MIUI based on Android
- Xiaomi could launch two models of Mi Pad 2 (with windows 10 OS as well as MIUI)
In case of 2 devices, one would feature the same 7.9-inch display like its predecessor based on Android, and the other is expected to come with 9.7-inch display based on Windows 10 OS. However, the possibilities of launching dual-boot Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is more, and there is one reason behind this. Xiaomi Mi 4 users have already tried Windows 10 on the device, that run properly. Windows 10 developer ROM was made available to try (it’s removed now).
We have already published an article earlier with the leaked images of Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 running on Android OS. Once Windows 10 OS is added, it would give the flexibility to use OS according to their choice. Xiaomi is not the first company who would launch this kind of tablet. There are many Chinese tablets that already have dual-boot option (Windows+Android).
Do you think Xiaomi is making right move?
