When I first heard that Microsoft was talking to HTC about loading Windows Phone on Android devices, it sounded crazy and desperate. But it is actually happening. Microsoft is really that desperate to do something, anything to create at least an illusion growth of Windows on mobile devices.
Furthermore, HTC is not the only vendor Microsoft went to with the offer. They 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.
