AMD and BlueStacks Bring New Dual-OS Android Solution to Retail


AMD has announced the retail availability of a new BlueStacks dual-OS Android solution, optimized for AMD APUs, with expected consumer availability in the second half of 2014.

The AMD and BlueStacks joint solution brings the Google Android OS experience to select Microsoft Windows-based AMD-based tablets, 2-in-1s, notebooks and desktops in select retail stores. The availability in retail stores of the virtualized Android solution, unveiled at CES earlier this year, will allow consumers to access both Windows and Android environments, side-by-side, on select AMD-based PCs. The BlueStacks solution will first be made available with several key retail partners across EMEA later this year, including Elkjop Group.



PC buyers will have the choice of an AMD-BlueStacks upgrade when buying an AMD-based PC at select retailers.

The retail version of BlueStacks running on a Windows PC powered by select AMD APUs offers a familiar Android user interface, including settings, configuration and customization controls. Users will be able to run Android apps within a window or at full-screen resolution leveraging direct access to AMD graphics processing power. The solution support Android apps direct from various Android app stores, as well as synchronization between the same apps being run on the user's stand-alone Android devices. Interoperability through direct file sharing also enables Android apps to access files stored within the Windows file system. Users also get full support for the peripherals that are typically leveraged in mobile apps. That means they can take advantage of camera, GPS, accelerometer, and other components in their PC device, just as they would their equivalents in an Android phone or tablet.

The AMD and BlueStacks solution runs Android virtually within Windows. The customization, settings and personalization capabilities expected from an Android device are made available in a Windows environment. The retail solution also supports easy synchronization of the two environments through BlueStack's FoneLink service that enables AMD Windows-based PCs to become an extension of Android mobile devices and vice versa.
