Homegrown mobile phone-maker Karbonn Mobiles is all set to launch dual-OS (operating system) devices, which will support both Android and Windows, by June.

The company has just signed the licence agreement with Microsoft to make Windows-based phones and will put this along with its existing Android system to bring out the dual-OS phones in about six months, the company's chairman Sudhir Hasija said.

I wonder what will happen if Google were to resort to the same illegal tactics that Microsoft used to force OEMs into not dual-booting BeOS back in the day.

In the end, I'm just filing this one under 'poetic justice'. Shoe's on the other foot now, Redmond.

By mistake. The comment was supposed to support and extend MOS6510's comment.

I can now tell my friends that the nonsense I write on the Internet has support and even gets third party extensions. :-)
