Microsoft's rumored dual-display Surface could emulate Android apps, which isn't a bad idea
A new report from IHS Markit suggests that Microsoft may build Android emulation into future Surface devices, specifically the rumored "Centaurus" dual-screen PC said to launch early next year.

IHS Markit told Forbes that the dual-screen device, with two 9-inch displays, would be powered by Intel's 10nm "Lakefield" system-on-a-chip. Microsoft's new Windows Core OS (WCOS) will serve as the operating system, IHS added. (Microsoft hasn't confirmed that it's necessarily working on a future successor to Windows, but we know that devices like the Surface Hub 2 will include new "experiences," said to be WCOS.) IHS also aid that the device would include 5G WWAN connectivity.

Going cross-platform was, Microsoft contended, one of the benefits of jumping aboard Chromium, the project whose rendering and JavaScript engines also power Google's Chrome, Opera Software's Opera and several niche browsers.
