Windows has been trying hard to get into the Smartphone and the tablet market dominated by Android and iOS with its Windows 8. And Windows 8 has shown some great features that will help it in the competition. But Windows 8 has been very late into the competition and will need something extra ordinary to start competing with the big Guns.
Well now Windows 8 has a app called BlueStacks which will allow you to run Android Apps on Windows 8 tablet. This app will enable Windows 8 users to have an Android OS environment to let you use any application from the Android market without any performance depletion. Bluestacks is currently available in Window 8 Limited Alpha and will be available for Windows 7 in February.2012 as a Beta. Watch the video below from CES 2012 as a demonstration of Bluestacks on a Windows 8 tablet.
As of now we think it doesn’t support Apps download from the Android Marketplace but you’ll be able to use other Android app market like Amazon and Getjar.

This could be a major hit as you will not be needing a android device to use the android applications and have the benefit of using both the Windows programs and Android Apps with a same device.
