The writing was on the wall when the the original BlueStacks application player for Windows reached over 5 million installs. It was only a matter of time before the company behind the popular Android virtualization software for PCs debuted a Windows 8-compatible version of their software.

Yep, with the right combination of software (a launcher app, etc.) you could theoretically create a fully emulated Android tablet experience. Of course, emulated apps aren’t going to run up to the standard they might on the hardware they were intended for (read: touch controls, hardware optimizations), but for Windows users starving for some of their Android favorites it should more than provide a fix.
