I have the razr i and the amount of incompatible apps I've run too could be counted on one hand. The problem is that you might find the app incompatible when you look it up on the store, but just get the app from anywhere and you'll find it does work. .

end of arm?
big player on smartpjone market?

Intel is having a hard time porting those energy hungry atoms to a decent mobile platform.
Even if Intel achieve such a prowess, I doubt that ARM would rest and watching Intel taking the whole mobile market alone, no, they won't.
I thing of x86s in mobile market more like a dubious alternative choice then a real threat to the ARM architecture dominance.
many apps available in the Play Store won’t run on a device with an x86 processor. strong but disappointing
Android Man, 15 May 2013no mate android jelly bean only.windows shold be installable on it when boot loader is opened, but zte should have put at least 2gb of ram with such a strong processor,, and wonder how battery life would be!
Because windows probably won't be ported to it. It takes more than a proc to run an o/s. Android runs a linux kernel which in theory can run on a in Intel pc, given that there are plenty of desktop versions of linux. By the same token you can theoretically run desktop windows, therefore presumably mobile windows (although different kernels) on this phone or in turns any other android phone if you have the patience to cook up a pretty thorough o/s. Good luck getting hardware support from the manufacturers tho. Writing the all the drivers by yourself should be a decent challenge for anyone with a lot of patience/determination. Most of the stuff you need is written in C. Let us know how you get on
Or buy the android version and live without tiles.
Anonymous, 15 May 2013But why? It has x86 processor. please enlighten mecause intell is making now different types of cpu for mobiles which are purely linux based and supports only mobile os like android jelly bean , its acht. is not for pc os supportabilty.
Android 5 will run on it very smoothly
