Intel’s “dual OS platform” dual-boots Windows and Android at the push of a button. Android OS currently accounts for a large part of the mobile device usage and Intel’s platform may be part of its move to get a piece of this pie. Currently, the chip-maker’s Intel Developer Zones encourages developers to create native apps targeting Android mobile phones.
The Android OS experience has been available to PC users through Bluestacks, a firm that recently partnered with AMD to bring Android apps to Windows device owners. The solution runs Android virtually over the Windows system and AMD is planning to optimize its fourth generation APU’s to support this.
