Mobile Operating System News Byte: Windows Gains no Tablet Traction as PC's Turn to Android

Wochit 1:08 mins

Microsoft has had a hard time getting consumers to buy the Surface and it seems that other Windows-based tablets aren't doing much better. New research from Canalys shows that traditional PC vendors such as Samsung, HP and Lenovo have been increasingly turning to Android for tablets instead of Windows 8 or Windows RT. The first signs of a new Key Lime Pie build of Android have surfaced, albeit in a somewhat unconventional manner. A user in the Chromium bug tracker recently reported running tests on a variety of mobile devices. Among them, a Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 were listed as having the KRS36B build of Android. Twitter has just posted an update to its blog detailing new security updates rolling out via iOS and Android mobile app updates, which include the ability to use login verification and approve login requests direct from your mobile device.
