Microsoft wants HTC to put Windows Phone on its Android devices


It’s a bizarre idea, mainly because it would likely confuse phone buyers, but Bloomberg says Microsoft(s msft) has asked HTC to put Windows Phone software on the company’s Android(s goog) handsets. The devil’s in the details: Will the phones dual boot? Will a user be able to switch between the two? The are more questions than answers here although two things are clear: Microsoft is hungry for more market share and HTC’s downward spiral hasn’t yet changed course.

I think it would be nice to have a choice of either system when purchasing the phone.


So MS should give HTC the OS license (for a limited time) and HTC should sell their Windows Phone unlocked direct to the consumer in Europe and the Middle East.
Dual boot, no, but dual sim, maybe.
