The other day it was rumored that Microsoft had asked HTC to consider whether they would be willing to create a dual-booting device that would run both Android and Windows Phone at the same time. It was an interesting idea and it seems that HTC was not the only ones Microsoft had approached. According to new reports, Microsoft has approached their other Windows Phone OEMs such as Samsung and Huawei, asking them to if they too would be willing to create a dual-booting device. To make things even sweeter, Microsoft is allegedly offering Windows Phone for free to the manufacturers, as in they are willing to drop the licensing fees, as well as pay for what adaptation costs they might incur along the way.
This offer extends not just to Windows Phone devices, but Windows RT as well. As it stands it seems that Samsung already has a dual-booting device called the Galaxy Tab 2014 Edition that runs both Android and Windows RT at the same time, so for OEMs to create devices like this would not be a stretch of the imagination. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but do you think OEMs such as Samsung and Huawei would be interested in this deal?
