BlueStacks, a start-up company created back in March of 2008, releases a new product allowing Android apps to run on PCs.

A new Android runtime environment from BlueStacks is built on a x64 hypervisor allowing Android apps to be downloaded onto a Windows-based PC and run as it does on your smartphone.
