Huawei recently shared plans to release a dual-OS Android/Windows device in the US come Q2 of this year. Now, the company has publically stepped back from those words. It didn't provide an explanation, but it did emphasize its "open approach" towards mobile operating systems and a desire to provide "a range of choices for consumers." Most of the Huawei's handsets will continue to run Android, and while Windows Phone still isn't off the table completely, the two platforms won't play along anytime soon.


You stay on your side, I'll stay on mine.

This decision follows a Wall Street Journal report that Google and Microsoft both oppose this whole dual-OS thing. As a result, Asus reportedly canceled plans to release the Transformer Book Duet. In addition, the company will remove its Transformer AIO all-in-one desktop from the market.

This news doesn't come as too much of a surprise, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating for consumers who, dagnabbit, just want to run two operating systems from one device. Is that too much to ask?
