CES 2012: Run Android apps in Windows with BlueStacks

1:37 /

At CES 2012, Seth Rosenblatt takes a look at BlueStacks for Windows 8, which lets you put Android apps on a Windows 8 tablet.

Hi. I am Seth Rosenblatt at CES 2012. And today, I am going to show you Blue Stocks for Windows 8. This is a really cool app for your Windows PC that lets you run Android Apps on Windows. It's no more simple or complicated than that. So here, we've got a Windows 8 Tablet. And as you can see, right here, we've got Android app already loaded in through Blue Stocks. Here's Pulse, as you can see that's a pretty quick load and you can browse your news and everything. But, down here at the bottom, you've got your Android control buttons and this brings up your Blu Stocks interface. From here, you can see you've got other apps to play with and you can even go in to the Amazon Marketplace and download new apps. So in Windows 8, you go from having just your standard Windows programs and whatever apps are currently available to having 400,000 apps courtesy of the Amazon-Android Marketplace. It's pretty darn nifty. Another cool app that works with Blue Stocks and Windows 8 is drag racing. It's an Android game that works great on Android apps and on this Windows 8 Tablet. Blu Stocks is currently available in limited alpha on Windows 7 and will be available in February as a beta for Windows 7. Later in the year, it's gonna be coming out on Windows 8. At CES 2012, I am Seth Rosenblatt showing you Blue Stocks for Windows 8.
