AMD incorporates with Blue Stack program to enable Android OD in Dual boot with Microsoft’s Windows
A short note on BlueStack
On February 27th in Beijing, AMD at MWC 2014 made a formal announcement and introduced a Dual-Boot solution called BlueStack and the program is optimized especially for AMD APUs. But although it’s been launched still the implementation of this plan would take place in the latter half of 2014 along with the retail version of the APU powered PC.
Advantages of BlueStack
The main purpose for AMD to introduce BlueStack is to bring the full android experience on PC and avoiding the Dual boot limitations like the Apps being Operating System dependent. It means that the Android apps enabled to run on the Android OS can still be used on Windows as an executable file. This would help in development of Windows-Android hybrid Tablet PCs, Laptops as well as Desktops but to a limitation that only devices equipped with an APU would be able to avail the feature. But the bright side of this coalition would bridge the gap between PCs running Windows and other mobile devices running Android. The retail versions of the APU devices featuring Blue Stack wouldn’t require additional drivers to support Android and Windows rather be closely interlinked to use the shared driver to avail the hardware resource (another step to merge Windows and Android).
BlueStack is a very innovative and outstanding invention that would definitely allow the Windows and Android users to share a common platform for managing and synchronizing their devices just like the Apple Macbooks/Macintosh users do with their iPhones/iPads/iPods. In addition, whenever user starts the BlueStack application to access Android OS GUI, the windows switches to a full screen mode to enhance the Dual OS experience, but that’s not just the end of it, Both the OS would directly access the AMD’s graphics computing performance and both the OS would be able to use file sharing to access Android apps stored in Windows file storage. Besides that, Windows OS will be able to use the built-in camera, acceleration sensor and gyroscopes along with the other sensors that Android devices use.
