Last week, we heard the crazy report that Microsoft was asking HTC to put Windows Phone OS on Android tablets. Apparently, HTC wasn’t the only manufacturer Microsoft talked to. A new report says that Microsoft also had discussions with Samsung and Huawei asking them to dual-boot their Android devices with Windows Phone OS for smartphones, and Windows RT for tablets – for free.
Why would Microsoft do this for free, plus compensation for necessary adaptation costs? Because they desperately want it to appear that their operating system is growing in popularity. In addition, it seems that Samsung already has a Windows RT/Android dual-booted Galaxy Tab 2014 edition in the works. It’s going to be around 12 inches, very thin, and with a “crazy good” retina display, according to sources.
Stay tuned for more info.
