Google’s Android OS Can Be Made To Run On Win7 PC’s

If you are one of those persons whose finding difficult to choose between Microsoft Windows 7 and Google’s Android well there is an solution for it. Its called BlueStacks. This company actually made an marital knot between these Operating Systems. By this software you can boot both Operating Systems on the fly not by re-booting your system. The switching is soo smooth that you can Launch your Android Apps. from your Windows desktop itself.

BlueStacks Senior Vice President Apu Kumar said that BlueStacks is a response to what his company perceives as two complementary needs: the consumers’ desire to have their apps available everywhere, and the desire for a unified device.

BlueStack Systems Inc., which is based in Silicon Valley, has created a software tunnel that allows bidirectional communication between the Android side and the Windows side. This means that it can use Windows print drivers to print while in the Android interface, and create shortcuts for Android apps on the Windows desktop.

BlueStacks supports over-the-air updating, too, so the company can push out Android updates to its users automatically. Kumar said that he expected to get updates to users faster than the phone companies have been.

It hasn’t been an entirely smooth ride for the company. Besides the “heavy lifting” that Kumar said involved development difficulties of getting the software to work with different screen dimensions, scale correctly, different configurations, and multiple devices, there were other problems. One of the big hangups was caused by Google restricting its marketplace to specific ARM-powered devices. The company got around that problem when Amazon.com opened its Android app marketplace. “Amazon was chosen,” Kumar said, “because they have transaction mechanisms, and it’s a heavy brand across the world.”
