    It is called BlueStacks and Android is just flying on my PC.

    Run Mobile Apps on Windows PC or Mac with BlueStacks | Android App Player

    Insane technology. Android apps are just flying on my pc. They look bad on 21" monitor but 13" must look so much better. Compatible with windows 8 meaning all touch. Now I am tempted to get Windows 8 Tablet. Surface with this app is just crazy. google must be very "happy" about popularity of Android.

    It did not get copied from the Playbook. This tech has been around before the PB had the Android player.
    Roo Zilla, osbook and mikeo007 like this.

    Plus the PlayBook native Android player doesn't provide full access to Google Play. However, I noticed you edited your post and removed that statement. Does this not allow access to Play either?

    It's a bit clunky. It's basically dumping the Android environment in a container on Windows.

    Just like how there used to be VisualBoyAdvanced emulator for Gameboy games, etc. And the SNES Emulator, and N64 Emulator, etc etc etc. It's just an emulator for Android Apps.

    x86 architecture. Bluestacks has been around for more than a year already. Its not a copy of the playbook, its basically the android OS completely virtualized, not on a per-app basis, the entire system. You can even root it and have access to google apps.
