HTC may introduce smartphones with two operating systems

The struggling smartphone maker HTC may soon introduce a first for the entire smartphone industry – devices with two operating systems that include Android and Windows Phone.

Speaking of Windows Phone it’s quite logical for Microsoft to stand behind the incentive and indeed this is quite right. Microsoft does support such a move and will provide the necessary technology for this thing to become doable, as you can’t just install two completely different operating systems and call it a day. If introducing dual OS smartphones ever becomes reality it will serve both HTC and Microsoft well because the former will attract more customers, while the latter will have the chance to increase the popularity of Windows Phone on a market dominated by Android and iOS.

The two companies face a small problem though – only chips from Qualcomm are able to run both Windows Phone and Android with processors from Samsung, Intel, NVIDIA, MediaTek, Rockchip and others supporting Android only. This means that one way or another HTC may be forced to use Qualcomm chips in the upcoming dual-OS smartphones.
