Bluebird's new ruggedized handheld can run both Android, Windows Phone variant

For some time, there has been loads of talk in the past couple of weeks about whether the Android platform and the Microsoft's Windows Phone Operating System could and most importantly, should coexist on a single mobile device and/or form factor.

Bluebird's new ruggedized handheld can run both Android, Windows Phone variant

Now it turns out that at least one OEM already has put the Android OS and an embedded variant of the Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS on just a single form factor. That “one” OEM is the Bluebird Inc., which is a Korean handheld mobile device provider.

The Bluebird has recently announced the new five-inch device, which they are calling the BM180, on January 17th. Their press release announced that the device interestingly does not even mention about Android at all; and it focuses all on the Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, which is now based on the Windows Phone 8 core. There is also a new BP30 model device mentioned in the Bluebird Inc.'s press release, which is an even more ruggedized version of the BM180 one.

According to the Bluebird Inc.'s brochure, the BM180 device is the "world’s first and biggest screen smart terminal." It can equally run either the Android 4.2 or the preview version of Microsoft’s Windows Embedded 8 Handheld in "just one form factor."
