BlueStacks will let you run Android apps in Windows

Bluestacks is a application for the Windows platform that will let you use Android apps from your WIndows PC or tablet.

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.
