Huawei to launch dual-boot Android and Windows Phone smartphone in Q2 2014
Huawei has just stated that it will continue to provide supports for Windows Phone in future as well but feels that the mobile operating system comes across as a better proposition when used alongside Android in a dual booting device. “We are still committed to making Windows Phone devices,” said Shao Yang, Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer.
Although Windows Phone share is increasing with passage of time, it still will come after Android as per the official. The company’s priority will remain Android in future as well but it won’t abandon Windows Phone as well. Instead it will be looking towards exploring the arena of devices with dual operating system. The company feels that dual operating system devices will pose as an interesting offering to the consumers.
As per the company, the consumers are still reluctant to buy devices which runs on Windows Phone but it will be a lot easier for them to go in for a dual operating smartphone with Window Phone on board. It will launch its dual operating system device in the second quarter of 2014 in US and we believe the global roll out will begin then as well.
Huawei is the world’s third largest smartphone manufacturer and wants to gain a bigger share by further exploring all possible areas of smartphones. It will also keep on exploring the scope of other operating systems as well and launching devices with newer operating systems. Talking about Tizen, it stated that it is still unclear about that. Huawei would like to increase its share in the global smartphone arena for sure in future and launching devices that are innovative would surely help it do that.
