Samsung asks: Would you like an Android with your Windows?


Called the Ativ Q, the convertible "tabtop" can boot either the Microsoft operating system or run Google’s Android 4.2.2, with users able to share data between the two operating systems.

Its great to see there are companies with so much cash for innovations targeted at large market segments like those who won’t be confused by having to interact with two distinct user experiences all day.

Despite that there’s likely to be a flood of Tabtops in the market in the next 12 months as other hardware vendors try to extend their product umbrella.

I’ll place a bet now that not only will their sales be modest, but it will quickly become apparent that of those who purchase most will use one or other of the Operating Systems on offer depending on how they use the devices the most.
