Intel demonstrates latest Android-Windows 8.1 OS switching tech

Washington, Jan. 09: Chipmaker Intel reportedly demonstrated its latest dual-OS switching technology that it has implemented in collaboration with Asus at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas.

The switching technology takes about three and a half seconds to swipe between operating systems that can be done with either a hardware or software key.

According to Cnet, Intel enables the rapid switching, while the way switching and file- and memory-sharing is implemented is a proprietary Asus technology.

Asus is expected to roll out an 11-inch model capable of running Windows 8.1 and Android. (ANI)
