Intel said it plans to make processors to personal computer and tablet makers that support both Windows 8.1 and Android. 

During a keynote address at CES, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said the chip giant's  "Dual OS" initiative is designed to give customers more choice.

"Our [OEM] customers wanted more [than Windows]," Krzanich said. "We wanted devices that can do both [Windows and Android]. There are times when you want Windows, times when you want Android. We wanted more choice: Windows for some usage, Android for others."

A company called Micromax announced plans earlier this week to deliver a dual-boot Android Windows LapTab tablet later this year.
