Who put that Windows in my Android
Word out of India is that Karbonn, a locally based smartphone maker, is set to launch an Android/Windows Phone 8 dual-OS hybrid device later this year. Karbonn's presence is predominantly emerging markets, but according to The Times of India it is full steam ahead on an unholy union of the two mobile operating systems.
Karbonn was recently announced as a new partner for Windows Phone following Microsoft easing its regulations around the platform. Things like dual-sim and support for the likes of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 200 and 400 chipsets opens up Windows Phone further to emerging markets, and also it seems to running the platform on the same hardware as Android. The question as to why comes up, but Karbonn says the devices will be targeted at professionals and tech-savvy individuals.
Android and Windows 8 have been seen on the same devices already. But, with rumors of Android app support being looked at for Windows Phone and Nokia going down the Android path this past week, there may be interesting – and weird – times ahead this coming year.
