Samsung and Huawei To Make Dual-Boot Android Devices. Dual Boot Galaxy Tab In The Works
Gabriel Roşu / 5 years ago
It sounded unbelievable when Microsoft asked HTC to load Windows Mobile on their Android Devices. But it is actually happening and HTC was not the only targeted company by the Microsoft giant.
They also are asking Samsung and Huawei the same thing too. And are offering Windows Phone OS for smartphones and Windows RT for tablets, for free plus compensation for necessary adaptation costs.
Samsung already has a dual-boot Galaxy Tab 2014 Edition with Android and Windows RT on board. It’s one of Sammy’s large tablets (probably 12″+), about the size of A4 paper sheet. It is very thin, with very good metal imitation plastic chassis and “crazy good” retina class display. The tablet is very fast and, according to people who played with it, the whole dual-boot concept works rather well.
This info comes from Mobile Review’s Eldar Murtazin, who was the first to break the news that Microsoft is going to merge Windows Phone and Windows RT in Windows 9, and the first one to tell us about NVIDIA reference design tablets early this year.
He also now reiterated that there will be app compatibility break in Win 9, and also major changes in overall UserExperience. Which means Metro UI is getting a major overhaul too.
