    Is it possible to Install Windows 8 in Android Mobile?

    Windows 8 has still not released but has already got so much popularity due to some awesome features.I just want to know whether it is possible to install this version of windows in an android set or not? If yes then how?

    Re: Is it possible to Install Windows 8 in Android Mobile?

    Hello friend,

    It is impossible to install Windows 8 or any other operating OS in Android Mobile because the hardware and kernels are specifically written and developed in a framework to support Android only on Android devices.Hence for installing Windows 8 you'll need to replace the entire Kernel which is not possible.

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and visit again.

    No,It is not possible to install Windows 8 in any android device as it is not released completely and the sources are not released yet so it will not be possible. After it gets released if Microsoft releases the source code for windows 8 it might be possible.

    No friend,
    It is not possible it install windows 8 on android mobile. Both OS needs
    different hardware configuration. So it is not possible. Hardware
    configuration for Android is:-

    Android's purpose is to establish an open platform for developers to build
    innovative mobile apps. The Android Compatibility Program defines the
    technical details of Android platform and provides tools used by OEMs to
    ensure that developers' apps run on a variety of devices. The Android
    SDK provides built-in tools that Developers use to clearly state the device

    Where as Windows 8 phone has fully different requirement. So it does not
    support on android phone.

    You cant


    Windows 8 is another OS like android OS


    But you can install Windows 8 theme in your handset


    Windows is Microsoft product and Android is Google's


    So it is not possible to install it in android

    It will be possible one day ... Android is Linux system ... as I know You can install If processor is supported by OS ... as I remember than W8 supports ARM type processors ... so there is only question about adding support from Microsoft ...
    It might take time, but eventually it will be possible ... at least on Tablets ... phone is not any different ...
    I'd would replace all my Android OSes with W8 as soon as it will be possible ....

    Hello Guest,
    Sorry, you won't be able to carry out any such OS installation on your Android powered devices. This is because firstly the format of windows is totally different and then the software configs, kernels etc. are very difficult to install and program. Only a windows phone, like Lumia etc. would support such features. Thank you..... :-)

    Re: Is it possible to Install Windows 8 in Android Mobile?

    Hardware requirements for Android and Windows Phone 8 Is so different???

    On similar hardware, is impossible to install it on a original Android phone?
    I mean to replace all the software, boot, kernels, etc...

    Or something like dual-boot with WP6 and Android, in the near past!

    Sorry for my bad English,

    Why some people are so dumb in replying to some query. Only few quys got the answer right. The person's original question meant whether it is possible to install windows 8 mobile OS on a device which has Android OS. He didnt mean to install Windows 8 inside Android OS. Guys please dont answer if you dont understand the question

    HELLO FRIEND


    Is it possible to install windows 8 on Samsung galaxy II?


    After trying Android for the past 3 months I can surly say that it is not such good OS.


    It’s full of bugs and keeps crashes all the time.


    If it is not possible to install windows 8 on it will it be possible to install Symbian instead…


    HAPPY TO HELP YOU


    THANKS FOR VISITING

    No.you can not install Window 8 or any window on your device.Your device has operating system android which is provided by Google.No other OS can be installed in your device.Those device who have Window as their operating system can not install android has their OS.Android is totally different from Window & Android hardware configuration & other things are totally different.So,never try to install window as OS.If you want OS as window then buy Nokia Lumia or Iphones.

    NO thats not possible to install Windows 8 in Android phone.

    The reason behind this is that the
    Hard configuration for both the operating system is different.

    Windows 8 operating system is not compactible for Android phones.

    It should be I guess... Give it a try at your own risk... The Hardware is just a platform to run the software... When Android can run, why not Windows ? However it is not easy and few hardware features may not show up correctly I guess - anyway the journey would be exciting.. Windows is anytime better than Android..
