Indian handset maker Karbonn to launch dual-OS smartphone this June
If you like Android and Windows Phone, you can have the best of both worlds this June when Indian manufacturer Karbonn launches its dual-OS smartphone. The company sells its handsets in India as well as in other countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and the Middle East. Karbonn just recently signed its licensing agreement to use Windows Phone. The company's chairman, Sudhir Hasija, says the company will use Microsoft's mobile OS right alongside its existing Android system.

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.
