Intel confirms it will power devices that run both Windows 8.1 and Android
CES 2014 is well under way and we’ve received our official confirmation from Intel that Windows and Android dual operating system computers are indeed real. In fact, Intel will be providing processors that will power dual operating system computers that can switch between Windows and Android with the press of a button.
During a CES keynote earlier today, Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich mentioned that the company will power devices that run both operating systems, although he didn’t go into much detail. We learned about the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 earlier today, which runs both Windows 8.1 and Android. This device is also being touted as the world’s first quad-mode dual-operating-system laptop and tablet convertible.
It will be interesting to see how well this concept of having a dual operating system will be and if it picks up steam with consumers. Would you purchase a decently priced Windows 8.1/Android computer or would your rather have a single operating system?Further reading: CES 2014, Intel, Windows 8.1
