Taiwanese company Asus is also believed to be postponing shipments of its Transformer AiO P1801 and P1802 dual-OS PCs, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Elsewhere, Huawei is understood to be developing a smartphone with both Android and Windows on board, with Google and Microsoft yet to quash its plans.

Chip-maker Intel is also said to be keen on dual-OS hardware as a potential means of sparking renewed interest in a flagging PC market.

Neither Microsoft nor Google has offered any official comment on the matter.
