No dual boot device coming afterall

Only a few days ago, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei said that it was working on a dual boot smartphone that would run the Android and Windows Phone operating systems. Huawei had said that the dual OS devices would make it easier for buyers to decide to purchase a Windows Phone device (by having a fallback to Android).
 
The smartphone maker has apparently had second thoughts on that dual OS device and is stepping away from that decision.
 
"Huawei Consumer Business Group adopts an open approach towards mobile operating systems to provide a range of choices for consumers," the company said in a statement. "However, most of our products are based on Android OS, [and] at this stage there are no plans to launch a dual-OS smartphone in the near future."
 
Huawei had previously gone so far as to say that the dual boot smartphone would be on the market in the U.S. in Q2.
 
Following this latest statement, Huawei will continue to make Windows Phone and Android devices separately.
 
A spokesperson for the company said, "Microsoft is still a key global partner of Huawei Consumer Business Group. As long as the consumers continue to demand Windows, we will continue to supply them."
 
There have been reports that other firms working on dual boot Android and Windows products came under pressure from both Google and Microsoft to ditch those plans.
