On one hand, we’ve yet to see a smartphone that comes with both Windows Phone and Android. On the other, the Bluebird BM180 is one of the first devices that are capable of running said two platforms. Plus, it’s got an IP65 certification.
Mind you, the Bluebird BM180 is not truly a dual-OS device; users must choose on purchase what it must boot into (either Android or Windows Phone 8‘s enterprise version called Windows Embedded 8 Handheld). The handset can also be configured in terms of RAM (1GB or 2GB), internal storage (8GB or 16GB), connectivity options (LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), and other components (barcode scanner, magnetic stripe reader, contactless card reader).
As an enterprise device, the Bluebird BM180 also features a 5-inch HD display with Eyelluminate technology (can be upgraded to Full HD). Measuring 77.95 x 152.1 x 16.7mm, this smartphone has a standard battery at 3000mAh capacity and is powered by a dual core processor based on the Cortex-A15 architecture.
At the very least, this new device (which Bluebird is claiming to be the world’s “first & biggest screen smart terminal”) is an indication of things to come. Heck, even the press image seems to suggest an OS-switching application for smooth OS transitioning on the fly.
