Microsoft allegedly asked both Samsung and Huawei to consider loading the OS onto Android tablets and smartphones as a dual-boot option.
Samsung has reportedly begun development on a 12-inch tablet with a very high-definition display; those who claim to have spent time with the device say it works quite well.
The news comes quickly on the heels that HTC may also beWindows Phone into future smartphones alongside Android. Microsoft, obviously desperate to expand its mobile market share, is said to be dangling a carrot that waives licensing fees and includes compensation.
If the rumor of a dual-boot Samsung Galaxy Tab sounds like a reach, consider the original source (Hint: translate from Russian and search for the heading "Masterstroke Microsoft to increase sales Windows Phone / Windows RT").
Tech writer Eldar Murtazin's name has popped up on more than one occasion as being credible. He was, for instance, one of the first to break the news of the new Nvidia . On the other hand, not every "leak" is viable, and not every source is correct (Murtazin also incorrectly reported plans ).
In other words, hold tight while we wait to see what happens.
