Microsoft has said that Windows 10 will be launching a massive 190 countries around the globe "this summer". That is earlier than the end of year launch that was expected and will truly bring the new multi-platform OS to the masses, with the software set to arrive in 111 different languages.

For those running devices or machines running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows Phone 8.1, the new Windows 10 operating system will be available as a free upgrade. While familiar Windows Phone collaborators will remains, and Microsoft will obviously continue making Lumia handsets, the company was quick to point to new collaborators too.

Chief among those was Chinese company Lenovo. Microsoft said the third largest smartphone manufacturer will release a Windows 10 smartphone that will be released through the middle of this year on China Mobile. Microsoft also said that Xiaomi will be one of its partners, but stopped short of saying the company will be building a smartphone for the platform.
