    So I know this is a floating question but how would one go about dual booting a full OS like windows XP or 7 and android on a phone?

    Thanks,
    Light

    you'd need a phone with x86 architecture to run windows natively and then android would be a total hack

    maybe when win 8 comes to arm you'll start seeing stuff like that

    It is possible to dual-boot more than one OS. I've dual-booted my Nokia N900. However, it can't be done on just any phone, is considerable work and has limited real-world usefulness. More just to play with.

    And no, you can't use friggin' XP or Win7. Thank God.
