Owners of iPads and other non-Android devices will now be able to run Android apps thanks to Myriad Group's new Alien Dalvik 2.0 software.
We talked to Myriad about Alien Dalvik, the software that can put Android apps on MeeGo phones like the upcoming Nokia N9 -- not to mention in cars and aeroplanes.
Mobile software maker Myriad is preparing software that lets non-Android-based smartphones run apps designed for Google's mobile OS.
The software, designed to load apps faster than the current Dalvik virtual machine, is built into Android 4.4 and could arrive in the next version of Google's mobile OS.
