Karbon Mobiles is set to launch dual OS (operating system) smartphones that run both Windows and Android.
Having recently completed a deal with Microsoft, the company will launch the new devices in its domestic Indian market in June. The company has yet to announce a price range for the handsets.
Karbonn, which at present sources all their products from Taiwan and Korea, is actively working on setting up a manufacturing unit in India, with a capacity to make one million phones a month.
Since last year, Microsoft has reportedly been open to the idea of dual-booting smartphones, in a bid to beef up its market share and challenge Android and iOS.
It also seems like Microsoft is embracing a more harmonious approach with Google’s Android OS. Nokia – a company that Microsoft is in the process of acquiring – recently unveiled the Nokia X family of devices that run an operating system based on Android.
