Fashion bag maker Intel has been slowly backing away from its old chum Microsoft allowing the forces of darkness to pick it off — now it seems to have gone into actual back stabbing mode.
Buried in the press releases at CES is the news that Chipzilla will collaborate with manufacturers on additional devices that can switch between Windows and Android with the press of a button, just like the Asus Transformer Book Duet.
Intel demonstrated the technology on a laptop during the company’s press conference, right after introducing “Intel Device Protection Technology,” an idea that should help Intel-based Android devices meet corporate standards for enterprise security.
Meanwhile, AMD bolstered its partnership with BlueStacks to run a fullscreen and windowed Android apps within Windows itself. But while AMD has not got a lot to lose by supporting dual operating systems, Intel has a bigger interest in keeping people away from Android while it gets its own mobile act together.
