Bangalore: Here is a good news for people, who at least for a moment, would have imagined their desktops and laptops to be an Android device so that they can play the thousands of apps available- AMD, the processor manufacturers for Windows systems had partnered with Bluestacks, the technology inventors who run Android apps on PCs, to launch AMD AppZone Player today, to expose AMD’s 100 million Windows customers to Android’s 500,000-plus apps.



The AppZone player is aimed mainly at Windows 7 and Windows 8 customers who use AMD processors. The player allows users to download, search and play thousands of Android apps available, including the popular ones like Fruit Ninja.



According to Rosen Sharma, CEO of BlueStacks, “Our research has shown that for the youngest, newest customers, their first device is mobile,” “Then they get a PC and expect it to have the apps their phone does. This deal positions AMD very well for this fast-growing group of young buyers.”



The Calif. based BlueStacks had earlier introduced their Windows 8 App, which would make the Android games run on tablet hybrids and touchscreen-equipped laptops running on Microsoft’s new touch centric operating system.
