Indian handset maker Karbonn to launch dual-OS smartphone this June
Karbonn says that the new dual-OS device will be aimed at "office-going professionals and techies." The company currently imports its products from Taiwan and Korea, but is planning on opening a manufacturing facility in India. The company also announced that it plans on trying to bring in additional revenues by selling apps relating to Augmented Reality.
As far as the dual-OS phone is concerned, so far there is no word on what kind of specs we might see on the unit, and there is also no word on pricing.

WP to lose your sanity. Android(or any other OS) to recover some of it.

WP to get work done and integrate into your work without the BYOD hassle. And droid to play flappy bird on. It certainly is a nice touch for a leapfrog OS. Posting on my note 3 at the moment, which just gave me a google.process error for my magazine app and pissing me off all day.

Awesome. Too bad its made by Karbonn, but its a good start as better known OEMs would eventually follow suit.

It's a good thing karbonn started it
if some major OEM had started dual boot devices would be priced way too high

they're not starting it. others have already announced their dual booting devices. you just can't find them in stores. it could be windows or google trying to stop it.
i suspect it's windows because they are also planning to release devices that boot android and wp.

Others should do this as well, give people the chance to try out both OS.

others already tried it. nobody was able to release the product to the market.
i think they're being stopped.
samsung's ativa tablet/tab hybrid as well as the one from asus didn't make it to the market despite having already been announced
