Windows + Android: So China Did It Right First

Today: Microsoft debating Android app support for Windows Phones

According to a former Microsoft employee, the biggest priority for Microsoft this time around is to “stop the leakage” and prevent Android and iOS users from completely abandoning Microsoft’s operating system. Apparently, this has led Microsoft to discuss whether or not Android apps should be allowed to run on Windows Phones.

Which I covered in When Translation Goes Wrong

I wonder what Hendrickson, who has experienced Android + Windows on at least two tablets, thinks of this move?

And since Windows 10 is a unified system, what’s to prevent the same Android + Windows scheme on Windows tablets, as with China?

Surface + Android? Eight-inch dual-boot tablets arriving in brick & mortar stores?
