BlueStacks' Android player hits 5 million installs, coming soon to Windows RT tablets

BlueStacks, the PC and Mac software, that allows users to run Android apps on their computers has reached 5 million “organic” installs, which include only installs through the company’s website. That’s not a minor figure considering that we’re talking about a niche product, not every users necessarily needs.

However, we’re willing to bet that’s just a start with BlueStacks also announcing distribution deals with ASUS and AMD that will see the software pre-installed on 100 million devices shipped this year.

And that’s not all – BlueStacks is apparently preparing a version of its solution that will sing along Windows RT devices. We don’t have the timeline yet, but I would have to guess this software could end up in Windows Marketplace in couple of weeks. Not that we have any inside information — it’s just that it can’t be that hard to port an existing software from Windows 7 to Windows 8. I’m sure Microsoft will want to make this as seamless as possible…
