Android duels with Windows 8 on Samsung hybrid

While it appears to be a Windows 8 laptop first and Android device second, the fact that Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) is only a tap away signals that Samsung believes consumers need a pathway out of Windows to a more mobile-centric world.

Not unlike what Hewlett-Packard has done with SlateBook x2 laptop hybrid. Though in HP’s case it’s an Android-only affair.

The take-away is that these aren’t phones or stand-alone tablets, but capable laptops running Android.
