Last year, the famous exhibition Computex 2014 was presented to the hybrid tablet ASUS Transformer Book V. He could not just transform into a laptop using a snap-on keyboard, but also to work with two operating systems – Windows and Android. Affected by the fact that the Taiwanese company has always sought to create hybrid devices, like the gadget fits perfectly into its philosophy. But the giants of the IT-industry did not like this approach: Microsoft and Google was forced to stop issuing ASUS computers with two operating systems.
For many Chinese companies are industry leaders to influence difficult, so they are easily picked up the idea of a combination of Windows and Android. And today is available a sufficiently large number of tablets with the so-called system of Dual Boot, both compact (7-8 inches) and large (9-11 inches). Next we look at the older category.

But in spite of adaptation to the tablet and touch interface, the situation with entertainment this is not so optimistic for Android is available substantially more first-class gaming hits.
The example above is quite simple, but it helps to understand that the coexistence of Windows and Android could be useful.
