Online PR News – 17-January-2012 – – Team Virtual Force would like to congratulate BlueStacks team in winning this award at CES yesterday.

LAS VEGAS–BlueStacks isn't a household name, but it's about to become arguably one of the most useful pieces of preinstalled software on Windows 8 computers.

At the 2012 Consumer Electronic Show here today, BlueStacks revealed a functional demo that runs Android apps of all kinds on Windows 8. This follows last year's debut of the software and release as a rough alpha for Windows 7, but it comes with a piece of unexpected news. The software maker has been in talks with hardware manufacturers to ship the program preinstalled on Windows 8. A beta of theWindows 7 version was also cagily given a release date of sometime before the second quarter of 2012.

BlueStacks CEO Rosen Sharma, spoke confidently about the impact that his software will have. "The Metro UI is beautiful, but the number one thing Windows 8 is missing is apps," he said. "This changes all that." BlueStacks claimed in the press release for the announcement that its software "makes creating mobile apps for the Windows 8 platform unnecessary," a gutsy claim for a program that has yet to have even one stable version on the market.

As you can see in our First Look video above or in the official BlueStacks promo, the Windows 8 integration works with the Metro interface, creating tiles for Android apps that look and feel like they're Metro apps. It effectively eliminates the concern that Windows 8 won't have enough apps to compete with iOS and Android by bringing the entire Android library to the system. The software will support both Metro and traditional windowed modes.

Virtual Force feels proud to partner up with BlueStacks and will continue to work with them for their future success. For mote information visit
