Intel and AMD both have plans to bring Windows and Android together on the same computer. The project is internally known as "Dual OS" bu Intel. Android will run inside of Windows using virtualization techniques and you can have Android and Windows apps side by side without rebooting your machine.

 

AMD on the other side just announced a partnership with BlueStacks to do the same thing more seamlessly. BlueStacks will run Android within Windows. Users will be able to launch Android apps from the Windows 8 Start Screen just like they were native Windows programs and search for new apps using Microsoft's own Windows 8 search charm.

of course the fix for one frankenstein OS is to shoehorn another OS into it.

Just read a similar news in a newpapaer today that Micromax, a small time company in India that takes Chinese phones and rebrands them is also making tablets which will run Windows and Android.
 
Not a big news then.

This isnt really news, Intel have had 'Android on Intel Architecture' as a project for at least 6 months, I am dual booting Windows and Android on my Acer W700P.
