    Samsung ATIV tablet runs BOTH Windows and ANDROID

    Hi there
    This looks possibly interesting - could be the best of BOTH

    BBC News - Samsung Ativ Q tablet runs both Windows 8 and Android

    It also runs using the New HASWELL chip too. Depending on the price I could actually get interested in this (Sorry Ms Surface I think you've just been "Samsung'd". The advantage of having BOTH OS'es is obviously clear -- for simple surfing etc I'd use the Android system - but for Business stuff including Ms Office I'd boot up Windows.

    On these sorts of devices switch OS'es should be a synch -- instant on in both cases.

    Never really been a fan of dual boot tablets ... I never understood the need for them

    Windows 8 is a full OS built for touch yet you can run android which is essentially a mobile OS at heart with limited compatibility and functions... I don't know maybe it is just me who doesn't understand Aha

    I've ditched my Surface RT in favour of an Android tablet. If the Surface Pro wasn't so heavy and expensive I would probably have gone for that.

    Looks like a nice tablet. But I would rather wipe off and be gone with Android and have the extra space for docs,spreadsheets photos etc.
