He's really predictable though.[citation][nom]redyellowblueblast[/nom]I just like the Android environment much more then Windows 8.[/citation]There are tons of Android tablets out there. You could totally go buy one, and use it to not post in articles about Win8 tablets asking if there's an Android version.

Now if only we could get an X86 Windows Phone.... that would be worth talking about.

I feel that MS made a big blunder coming out with ARM based Windows products in the first place. That is a big part of why the phones don't sell and why RT tablets do poorly. An x86 phone though would be something else.

as android has been already ported to x86 I think we will be able to dual boot windows 8 and android on these tablets

What, 2% market share? Adoption rate worse than Vista, but I guess fanboys will keep cheering no matter what.
