Windows 10 Mobile to be released on Android handsets

Amidst the news of Microsoft’s ailing mobile efforts comes a new approach.  Last year Microsoft, in conjunction with OEM Xiaomi, released a version of its mobile OS for installation on the Mi 4 Android phone.  News from China suggests that this approach is now going to be repeated, with a build designed for the newer Xiaomi Mi 5.  Perhaps more exciting is the news that other ROMs are being prepared for the OnePlus 2, and the yet to be released OnePlus 3.  Details are scant and are limited to the contents of the picture above (which is probably unhelpful for non-Mandarin readers!).  Personally I don’t think that Microsoft’s problems are down to the handsets themselves so I can’t see that this will improve its fortunes, but it’s an interesting approach nonetheless.  What do our readers think?
