Huawei To Launch A Dual OS Hybrid
The Chinese device market is overrun by tablets that come with Google's Android or Microsoft's Windows. However, there has also been an influx of slates that feature both operating systems in one device, thus giving users the flexibility that comes with the Android platform and the ergonomics and control through Windows. Apparently, Chinese handset manufacturer Huawei may also jump in the trend as rumors point out that the company is actively working on a hybrid that can go head to head against Redmond's line of Surface devices.
According to reports, Huawei is now working on a hybrid laptop PC, which means that it can be used as a tablet or a standard laptop as the case may be. There will also be a stylus. Moving forward, Huawei's rumored device will also come with dual OS capabilities. As such, users can switch from Android to Windows or vice versa should they wish to use one or the other. Of course, while Bluestacks has been around to provide the Android experience on Windows, a device that runs apps natively will deliver a much better experience.
Details regarding its hardware are still sparse, however. But reports suggest that it will favor an Intel chipset under its hood. Internal storage and the amount of memory are also still missing, and there are still no images that depict at least how the device will actually appear.
Xiaomi, another Chinese handset giant, has already released its dual OS tablet dubbed as the Mi Pad 2. Furthermore, reports last year have also discussed that the "Apple of the East" is planning to launch a laptop with a metal body to be released this year. It's still unclear if Huawei will be directly competing with it, but it will be interesting to see if the company will set itself apart from devices that hail inside China.
