Ever wished you could run some Android App or Game on your Windows PC? A soon to be publicly launched app will bring the Android operating system to Windows-based computers via a virtualization layer. Enter BlueStacks!
UPDATE 11th Oct 2011: BlueStacks has been released. BlueStacks has announced the alpha version of the BlueStacks App Player for Windows PC. You can now download it from the link mentioned at the end of the post and also watch the video.
BlueStacks is not a dual-boot solution. It will allow you to launch Android apps like you’d launch any other Windows application! The company is expecting to make this available for download sometime this year and is also working to get the software preloaded on Windows PCs.
But there is nothing on the website there right now … except for some pretty animation!
- Play Android apps fast and full-screen
- Push your favorite apps from your Android phone to your PC using BlueStacks Cloud Connect
- Run 10 pre-loaded apps “out of the box”
- Install up to 26 more of your favorite apps.
BluStacks is now available for download here.
