Microsoft wants HTC to put Windows Phone on its Android devices

It’s a bizarre idea, mainly because it would likely confuse phone buyers, but Bloomberg says Microsoft(s msft) has asked HTC to put Windows Phone software on the company’s Android(s goog) handsets. The devil’s in the details: Will the phones dual boot? Will a user be able to switch between the two? The are more questions than answers here although two things are clear: Microsoft is hungry for more market share and HTC’s downward spiral hasn’t yet changed course.
