While some of you may already know this, you actually can have android apps on the new Microsoft Surface tablets or your iPad. Bluestack offers a free download that runs the android apps through the cloud. So if you been a former android user and have moved to a iPad or have chosen to go to Windows 8 be it the Surface or other tablet, you can still keep most of those apps you have grown used to. This benefits Surface users more than anything because of the lack of apps presently available to the Microsoft store. Some users have reported sluggish response times but keep in mind their apps are going through the cloud and the slower response time (a few seconds) is worth the small inconvenience if you really missed your apps that much.
While the Surface RT has not been that big of hit for Microsoft, the current Surface Pro has been a bigger surprise due to it's Enterprise class capabilities as a professional work tablet. Still, many users who may have had or are considering giving up their android tablet for this new machine may have been holding back due to their displeasure of their apps not being available. Bluestack solves this problem. Check it out. Microsoft also may have shot itself in the foot by artificially creating a shortage of the tablet by over marketing it. Many retailers have been complaining of very little stock and not getting resupplied as customers line up to purchase the Surface Pro. Surface Pros are not cheap starting at $899.00, but they are loaded with features designed for the business professional who is working remotely, through a VPN, or logging in on the cloud. You can have your Android, open your Windows, and take a bite of your Apple all in one setting!
