    Why would you need to run a smartphone OS that's blown up in a window? It would seem more appropriate to get BlueStacks running on Windows RT and use android APPS, but not the OS, you need like an 8 core processor and several gigs of RAM to future proof the hardware so it can possibly be upgraded to android 5, MAYBE.

    It runs the full Android tablet OS, as far as I'm aware. One might as well ask why is Windows 8 running a smartphone OS that's blown up in a window. Ironic, isn't it?

    I've been seeing up a handful of Windows 8 machines at work. The execs see it as neat and flashy and such a part of the future that they have to get on board. However myself and the other techs setting it up, have said "f-ing Windows 8" more times than you can possibly imagine. It's only half baked in my opinion.

    What's more ironic is that's REALLY not that true...

    Now you tell me what seems to fit the bill as a blown up smartphone OS.

    How often do you see an OS fully cooked, they're in a continual process of cooking. The last couple of IOS upgrades on my iPads have been a real pain, with WiFi dropouts and crashes and slowdowns. Even the Jellybean upgrade on my HTC One X has caused it to slow down and yet it's supposed to be butter smooth.

    I would say all OS are half baked.

    Click on an icon, any icon, and the app fills the screen. Can't move it, can't resize it, whether on a phone or PC with 50" screen. Yep! That's a phone OS ported to a desktop. Android or Windows 8, much the same really.

    Put Android on your Surface RT and you might actually get somebody to bid on it on e-bay.
