If you are looking for decent upcoming Windows Phones in 2014, then you may be among the few who are not very fond of browsing hundreds of thousands of applications from your mobile’s Windows Store. However, it appears Microsoft will be doing something radical that could change the texture of the competition.
For many years, Windows Phone OS has struggled against perennial favorites iOS and Android due to its slow adoption of the latest applications. Now, Microsoft is allegedly thinking of allowing Android apps to run on its mobile platform.
According to a report by The Verge, the Redmond giant is already working on it and the project is in its early stages. This rumor certainly sounds promising for Windows Phone, but what could this mean?
This just means Microsoft has given up on the Store competition against Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store. In this attempt to even the competition, more people will be able to pick Windows Phone devices as an option over their Android-powered counterparts.
Of course, this project will also enable Windows Phone owners to install Android apps with ease, and if Microsoft is able to get the job done, it may be on its way to a true rennaisance of sorts.
