Oh, I remember that rumour, but I also remember that it didn’t seem like a credible explanation for killing the device. So I never archived it in my memory as ‘the reason’, and have been waiting to hear something that seems like a real reason ever since. Why not release it with the android functionality disabled? Dual OS has never been in demand, either before or since. Nobody caress about running Android and Widows on the same device. But different form factors have always been an area of great interest and an area of active development. It was always the form factor that was the AtivQ’s value proposition, never its supposed dual OS capability. It’d be like GM cancelling a car they’ve already begun manufacturing and are about to start selling because Pirelli won’t let them use their tires. So? Something STILL smells fishy.
