The HTC HD2 has been caught running on both Windows Phone 7 and Android in the past, although having both running simultaneously has never been achieved – not until now.

We know that ViewSonic’s ViewPad 100 is capable of dual booting, but with more details on the tablet device being revealed, the initial euphoria isn’t quite there any more.

Yuhua X2 smartphone comes with dual OS boot up
The Yuhua X2 smartphone is a handset that offers dual OS capability, letting you toss between Linux 2.6 as well as the Android operating systems.
