GeneralCheap Android tablet - hasn't anyone tried this yet? Pinmemberdandy7216-Jul-14 9:58 
So, the 7" Dell Venue tablet comes with Android 4.2. Specs aren't exactly out of this world, but it goes for $150 (for the 16GB model). Probably less if you look around.
 
Given that this is running an x86-compatible Intel CPU (an Atom Z2560 to be exact), could one not run some version of Windows on this hardware?
 
I realize the Dell Venue is also available with Windows 8.x, but it goes for an additional $100 or so.
 
I'm merely curious what would happen if you 'burned' a Windows ISO on a MicroSD card and tried to boot from it. Surely it wouldn't be that simple...
 
(The only thing I know about what the process what might look like is what I remember from installing Cyanogenmod on another tablet a few years back)
