BlueStacks‘ “App Player” will be compatible with Windows 8. Yep, that means you’ll be able to run all of those Android apps on your shiny new Windows tablet, ultrabook or laptop computer even though it runs the soon-to-be-released version of Microsoft’s OS.
Needless to say, the company is using CES to demonstrate this tech mumbo-jumbo on a Windows 8 Ultrabook. From the demo video, we see the application is made to sing along the new “Metro” user interface, making for an easy-to-grasp experience.
Aside from the new version announcement, BlueStacks also said it is actively collaborating with top PC manufacturers to offer BlueStacks App Player out-of-box. They haven’t named any names, leaving us a ton of room to speculate. Is it HP? Asus? Acer? Any guesses?
Finally, it’s worth adding that BlueStacks was named a CES Innovations winner for 2012. Their software is touted as the only program worldwide that can run native mobile applications that are ARM-based or x86, windowed or full screen, on Windows PCs and tablets.
And now the mentioned video, showing Android apps running on a Windows 8 PC. Enjoy!
