While Windows Phone might be called a thing of the past, a Windows Phone OEM named Coship, also known as Moly, has confirmed that it’s planning something unique. The company is working to create a device that runs two operating systems.

This setup will be just like the dual-OS installation in computers. This means that you can select which operating system you wish to boot in. The operating systems being worked upon are Android and Windows 10 Mobile. For the Windows 10 Mobile lovers, it must be an exciting update.

It’s not often a phone is revealed in a green color finish. Or “greenery” to give it full credit. Which, as it so happens, is Pantone’s color of the year 2017. It’s also Huawei’s oh-so-on-trend color for its brand new P10 smartphone.

Yes, ok, so you’re staring at blue version of the device for this review (technically “dazzling blue” in Huawei speak) – but this one is actually the best-looking color of the lot (mystic silver, graphite black and dazzling gold will also join the UK line-up).

Malware Found Preinstalled on Dozens of Android Phones
“In all instances, the malware was not downloaded to the device as a result of the users’ use — it arrived with it,” noted Oren Koriat, a member of Check Point’s Mobile Research Team.

The malicious apps on the phones of a telecommunications company and a multinational technology business were not part of the official ROM supplied by the vendor, he explained. They were added somewhere along the supply chain.

We can understand why Google is now cracking down on Android Pay. As Google releases its Pixel devices, it doesn’t want people tinkering too much with an Android Pay enabled device. So the rules are simple: If your device is rooted, no Android Pay, if your device’s bootloader is unlocked, no Android Pay either, even if you haven’t modified the system at all.
