Back in early February 2012 Patently Apple covered a report titled "Google Patent Clearly Eying the Desktop Market for Android." Then in June 2012 Patent Bolt reported on Google inventing a cooling system for blade servers. Now Patent Bolt has learned that Lenovo is preparing a dual OS system for a computer that could use a mouse, such as a notebook and/or desktop. That's bad news for Microsoft and good news for Google and their fan base.
Lenovo's patent states that "An electronic device having a hybrid architecture comprises two systems. Each of the systems possesses its independent processor and operating system. For example, a first system possesses an Intel processor and a Windows operating system, and a second system possesses an Arm processor and an Android operating system."
In patent FIG. 10 above we see an embedded controller is also used for receiving input from the input devices like mouse, touchpad and/or keyboard and so on and transmitting the input from the input devices to the current focus system.
Lenovo filed their patent application back in Q4 2012 in the US and one year earlier in China. To review this patent in more detail, see patent application number 20130127905. Considering that this is a patent application, the timing of such a product to market is unknown at this time.
