I think it would be cool.. but i dont think you are not a windows fan.. lol!
I wouldnt want windows 8 on my tablet...but I can see why some people might be interested.

nvidia is not intel though. they may licence some technologies from each other, but they aren't one and the same. If they were. then why would intel be bothering with the medfield chips?

Errr... nVidia is most certainly NOT Intel!

No back to the thread - why on earth would you want to put Windows, aka bloatware, on an Android Tab?

But you haven't answered the question? I asked why on earth would you want to put Windows 8 on an android tablet?

It seems silly to me that's all - but that's just my opinion

If dual boot was possible why would u not want to put win 8 or any other OS on it? I thought that was the point of being "open" why do so many touchpad users want android???

Actually windows8 might surprise you. it is not bloatware as in previous windows

Nvidia uses arm architecture intel uses x86. Windows 8 is being designed to support lean hardware like ARM based SoC. It will supports 2 modes - traditional windows called desktop mode and touch based called metro. Its tile based metro UI is more elegant than android and shoul work with both x86 and arm devices. X86 will habe an edge as it will work woth traditional windows as well as Metro while arm can only work with metro assuming they fix all the headaches related to arm

Me too! This is a Samsung tab that runs Android. Not an Android tab made by Samsung! If dual boot is possible I want it!

Well sorry to blow out your dreams but Windows 8 ARM wont isnt coming 'til 2013 and it WONT be available as OEM or retail disc in any way.

It will be embedded into the slabs, just like Android.
But since it is NOT open source, you just will NOT be able to add it afterwords.

THERE WILL BE NO WINDOWS ON THE GTAB 10.1. EVER.

Dual-Booting a Windows 8 ARM tablet with Android might be possible, but not the opposite.
That being said; just wait to see the price of the Windows-based slabs; itll be a good 200$ over the comparable Android-based slab.

Unfortunately, I agree with everything here, except the word "ever." I think there will be folks rocking the GT10 when Win8 gets leaked and built, but by then this will be a "legacy device." I'm really looking forward to having a windows 8 tablet, but it won't be the galaxy tab 10.1

yep microsoft UEFI Secure Boot technology might make it near impossible to dual boot win 8 and android ON devices built for windows8 - but i have faith in the dev community to port Win 8 onto android first devices- not that i would use it anyway
