Support for Dual OS means one can change the OS based on need, other way round you can also say after purchasing the hardware you are free to choose which OS you want to use due to the multiple OS support. It does not specifically mean that it has two OS simultaneously running on one device or two OS installed on one device and dynamically used based on need.

I do not see someone using his phone and in the middle will like to reboot or switch OS. If the option is between iOS and Android, maybe . But even with that, I do not seen the value. Most of the apps are in all the ecosystems.

You are right for consumer market it will not be a good idea, but many smartphone users are technically sound users, for them multiple os support will be an attractive feature.

Was very strange they even thought about it. In the enterprise, there is chance but in the consumer market, that is a bad idea. Yet, we need to see that some of these firms are looking for a simple differentiator in this crowded market.

Sometimes a baby is so ugly that the kindest thing that you can do is to strangle it in it's crib. That pretty much sums up what I think of this idea.

Agreed. When I first heard of this, I wondered why ordinary consumers would want or need 2 different operating systems on their phones. It was a smart move to drop this before sinking any more money into it.

Very wise decision, there in no meaning of having dual OS phone, instead it is required to have an open hardware phone that can support to any OS, Android, Windows or IOS. One can select the OS of his choice and go ahead with the hardware available from the device manufacturer.

This makes sense as I do not see the value. Unless phones have become laptops, it is not common to be in the Android environment and one missing something to pick in the Windows. Windows is largely work related for Office, etc. So, this "kill" makes sense.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
