Microsoft and Google Oppose Intel's Plan For dual-OS Tablets

It looks like the idea of a device dual-boot device that is able to run both Google's Android and Microsoft Windows OS is dead, due to opposition from Microsoft and Google, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

At CES this year Asus had showcased the Asus' dual-boot Transformer Book Duet, a hybrid laptop and tablet that switches between Microsoft Windows and Google's Android on the fly. The device was scheduled for release in the US this month but it has likely been cancelled, according to the report. Asus was forced to abandon the Duet, and, according a leaked memo obtained by the WSJ, it will also stop selling a pair of dual-OS all-in-one PCs it launched last year.

The memo mentions that Microsoft has a "new policy" of not supporting dual-OS products.
