Chinese tablet maker Chuwi has revealed a new tablet that can dual boot Windows and Android.
The company posted a video of the 8 inch tablet doing just that on Youku. First it’s shown running Windows 8.1… then the user restarts the tablet and it launches Android 4.4 KitKat.
Announcing the tablet on social network Weibo, Chuwi didn’t provide many details about the device. But if this is the same Chuwi Vi8 tablet the company first teased a few months ago, it has an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core Bay Trail processor.
That kind of hardware should be able to run either Android or Windows. But most companies that sell tablets in the West choose to install either one operating system or the other.
