HTC has a new Concept phone that can run on more than one operating system simultaneously that is HTC TUBE Concept phone powered with Cartridge, although the likelihood of this actually happening is probably slim to none, it’s a nice fantasy. Seeing devices such as this concept phone can give one a slight beacon of hope for the future. There have been times when incompatibilities of programs have led to major blunders. You develop software and it becomes dead due to lack of OS compatibility.
The phone has two main components, the outer shell and the inner “cartridge”. While the external features and design of the phone is constant, the phone will get radically changed, depending on the cartridge that you insert. More accurately, the whole mechanism of switching between operating systems works like sliding in and sliding out. You slide in Windows Phone 7 Cartridge and phone begins to work WP7 programs, games and UI while you slide in Android Cartridge, the phone turns to an Android Mobile phone. Interesting?
I surely like the cool design and think that it will really make revolutionary change in the concept of phone out there if it becomes true. What is your opinion about this concept?
