Intel Officially Announces Dual OS Support, Many Devices Running Both Windows And Android Coming In 2014

Intel Dual OS Platform

At CES yesterday, Intel officially confirmed their Dual OS project where they will officially support both Windows and Android on a same device. Krzanich stated that Intel is the first microprocessor company to support devices that combine the best of Windows* and Android* operating systems in a single device. Also Intel is working to make the experience of switching between OS as a seamless one. With the push of a button, user will be able to switch to the other OS in few seconds. Asus even announced a new device called Transformer Duet that will have this functionality of running both the OS on the same device.

Microsoft and Google should not be happy with this effort from Intel as this will create lots of confusion among consumers. Also Intel is expecting many such Dual OS devices throughout 2014 from various OEMs.
