That’s precisely what’s taking place in the embedded videos; Windows 7 booting, initializing and operating on an Android tablet.
The beginning of one video shows a normal Android launcher home screen with a number of readily available apps before starting the Windows 7 boot process.

Seeing this in action, albeit an extremely informal version, makes it simple to see why Microsoft has actually tilled considerable resources into its exceptional Windows mobile platform.
