Huawei is no stranger to Windows Phone, having released a handset in the US last year, but the company is now planning to combine Android and Windows Phone into a single smartphone. Speaking to TrustedReviews, Huawei’s chief marketing officer, Shao Yang, reveals the firm is still committed to Microsoft’s mobile software, but the preference is to dual-boot it alongside Android.
With the Windows Phone platform continuing to increase its market share, Huawei has pledged its continued support to Microsoft’s mobile OS. However, despite discussing its future Windows Phone support, Chinese manufacturer Huawei has claimed that WP8 is a better prospect when offered alongside Android as a part of a dual OS device. “We are still committed to making Windows Phone devices,” Shao Yang, Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer said speaking exclusively with TrustedReviews. Although throwing backing behind the growing Windows Phone brand, Yang revealed that Microsoft’s OS will continue to play a lowly second fiddle to Android.
