Microsoft's and Xiaomi's CEOs meet up in China – rumors ensue
Rumors say that Nadella spent his time in China for a secret get-together with another interesting person – Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun. Naturally, a meetup between these two figures instantly generates speculation about possible Xiaomi devices, powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone operating systems. Nothing official has been said on the matter, though.
If Microsoft was to lure Xiaomi into the Windows Phone ecosystem, that would be of great benefit to it – after all, "the Mi" has become the leading smartphone vendor in its home country, which is quite the large market, and is being praised as "the Apple of China". However, seeing as Xiaomi is a company that started as a developer for the custom MIUI Android ROM, and subsequently based all of its devices on MIUI's iOS-ish interface, it would be kind of awkward to see Xiaomi come out with a smartphone, whose home-screen is Metro-styled (pardon, Modern-Windows-8-styled).
Still, it is yet too early to say, whether such a collaboration would happen. For all we know – Jun may have declined the pitch, or the meeting could have been about something entirely different.
