hello. im thinking about osd about my next phone, but i was wondering about windows compability. osd got atom x86, so will it be possible to run normally widows 7 and normal windows apps on it, like netbook? or maybe ubuntu x86 version. is it possible to have full functionality of windows on phone?

You really want a full Windows desktop on a 4 inch screen? Seriously?

And no it won't happen even with the 'unlocked' bootloader. Ubuntu you could possibly do though.

Problem with that is the CPU used in the phone doesn't support virtualisation so it'll be really slow even with a native x86 virtual machine app.

Ubuntu will be possible though. The Nexus 7 version replaces Android though so I'd like a dual boot.

Probably that's what will eventually happen.

Guys,

What about dual-booting with Windows 7.5/7.8 ? Of course, feasibility when the bootloader is unlocked finally.

Doubtful I'd have thought but since the bootloader IS still locked a moot point.
Are there any Intel inside Windows phones?
