Forget about a possible dual-booting tablet for ASUS as the video that hinted at such a tablet was created to promote the partnership that the manufacturer has with BlueStacks; the latter is a company whose product allows 450,000 Android apps to run on Windows PC...

I personally find it kinda not so useful, you have to boot into another OS, while with this we have both working at the same time

Win8 tablets with the capability to use android apps is not bad. Compatibility with all the apps will be great. I hope Asus won't make the same mistake seen in the BB Playbook whereas only the droid apps submitted by devs are usable.
