Bluestacks, which isn’t open for public yet, has a software which will let you run Android apps right from your cozy comfort of Windows OS. The software loads on to Windows as a virtual OS and doesn’t need a dual boot. The software apparently handles the multi-tasking remarkably well and uses all the windows drivers.
The first question which pops up in anyone’s mind, why would you run Android on Windows? There might not be immediate answers to this but, I can already see the use cases. Windows is a ubiquitous platform and for someone who is developing apps for Android but don’t yet have access to an Android platform might find this a very good solution. Also testing an app on a mobile phone could be painful. The alpha testing can go on a PC. Or you can go ahead and download an app on to the pc, try it and if it passes the checklist you have set for your smartphone-temple then you can let the app through. Those are just three which came from the top of my mind. I am sure there are many.
The only thing Bluestacks doesn’t do right now is access Android Market and download apps for you. This is more a restriction of Android than a limitation of Bluestacks. Accessing Amazon’s own Android store is a possibility. Installing apk files directly looks like the most favorite option.
Once Bluestacks hits the public space we will know more about it. There could be potential alarms from various corners and there would be some happy folks too.
