Neowin reports Intel talked about dual-boot support for Windows and Android at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The chip giant wants to make switching between the two operating systems as simple as pressing a button.
During Intel's own press conference, the company's CEO showcased the ease of use of running Windows and Android simultaneously. Intel has tried to make the transition seamless and one which requires just the push of a button. Built-in device protection is expected to prevent security breach while switching between the OSes or using the setup.

Although Windows has more productivity value than Android, casual apps and games remains to be its Achilles' Heel. With the Dual OS feature, manufacturers can expect to sell more portable devices to consumers who want to have the entertainment value brought by Android on the move.
