Also from CES:

On stage at CES today, Jonney Shih proclaimed his company's new Transformer the world's first 4-in-1 device. By that he meant that it's a Windows laptop and tablet as well as an Android laptop and tablet. This new 13.3-inch slate transforms both physically and virtually thanks to the company's new dual-OS setup. A quick switch of three or four seconds is all that's required to morph you from the Windows 8 environment into the familiar Android UI and vice versa.

And all this is actively promoted and supported by Intel. So, Microsoft creates an operating system that is supposed to be both desktop and tablet operating system. However, nobody wants it. So, Intel and PC makers confuse everything even more by... Adding Android to the mix? What?

planet Earth.


One is ruler supreme on desktop. Other is absolute in mobile.


Actually it make much sense for all-in-one | two-in-one | other-hybrids-desktop-mobile-here. For day to day "desktop" usage just use Win. For mobile (like display that after detaching become tablet) use just Android part.


And people who will buy such stuff will want both worlds. They will know Win, and they will know Android.


Actually Win only here is more confusing. Cause its so different from Android in mobile!!!
