The BlueStack software
that allows you to run Android apps on your computer marked a major milestone with 5 million copies installed on various devices.
Moreover, BlueStacks Engineer Deepak Sharma, mentioned nonchalantly
: “We are considering offering BlueStacks for Windows RT next year
.” Not only that, but Microsoft support people are apparently suggesting to Surface RT customers that the hundreds of thousands of Android apps are coming for their tablet down the road under the form of a BlueStack port.
If and when a BlueStack environment is released for the Surface RT
and other slates running Microsoft's newest OS for ARM-based devices, there is the lingering questions whether Microsoft will allow it in the Windows Store, too, as that might preclude many developers from bothering with Wiindows 8/RT apps at all.
