    WindowsAndroid


    Previously we have seen Android apps running on Windows systems via the Bluestacks App Player. That solution created an environment on your computer that allowed you to run Android apps through an emulation layer. Now there’s a new solution called WindowsAndroid which runs a port of Android natively on the Windows kernel (Windows Vista or newer) instead of Linux.

    WindowsAndroid appears to be a very promising project which could achieve mass-appeal, especially to the wave of Windows 8 touchscreen ultrabook buyers predicted to come in summer.

    Android Surface tablets anyone?

    Seems interesting! But the thing I'm curious about is, can this "port" be rooted and upgraded just like on Android devices? Even more interesting, is that the Play Store apparently doesn't work, nor do native/downloaded Android apks :l

    The thing is, there's actually a demand for this.

    They're stuck in the past and aren't interested in anything new.

    I'm interested (I miss Flipboard), but I'd rather run it on my Windows RT tablet.
