Bluestacks has announced a deal with the world’s largest PC maker, Lenovo, to include the beta software in its Idea line of consumer PCs. The still-in-beta software, which is becoming increasingly popular, allows for users to install up to 750000 apps found in mobile platforms such as Android onto any x86 PC or Mac seamlessly using a technology the company calls “LayerCake”.
The Lenovo deal is the latest one struck by the fledgling company. Similar deals were struck with ASUS, MSI and recently AMD, all of which will see BlueStacks App Player to be preloaded into the companies’ PCs starting from 2013. It’s an interesting move, particularly for Lenovo, whose aggressive push towards Windows 8 and touchscreens make it an interesting companion software.
The company is also making an appearance at this year’s CES, where they will be showcasing their latest version of the App Player optimized for Windows 8.
