BlueStacks reveals GamePop console pricing

BlueStacks announced the GamePop console earlier in the month and opened up pre-orders immediately. More to the point, BlueStacks were giving a console and controller for free if you signed up for a year long subscription. The subscription is priced at $6.99 per month and includes access to (at present) more than 500 games. The one catch with that offer is how you have to pay -- for the full year up front.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon hands-on with BlueStacks for Android gaming

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon recently began shipping and while this "table" PC is running Windows 8, those making the purchase will find something Android related. The IdeaCentre Horizon comes pre-installed with a copy of BlueStacks. Basically, this means you can turn your 27-inch Windows 8 PC into an oversized Android tablet. The table PC ships with a wireless keyboard and mouse, however it also has a touchscreen display.

BlueStacks Android app solution optimized for the Microsoft Surface Pro

BlueStacks has been offering Windows users the ability to run Android apps for some time now. In fact, they launched in beta way back in March of last year. Of course, since that point we have seen numerous improvements. Not the least of which is additional apps. When they first launched on Windows, the apps were rather limited and now they are touting more than 750,000. And on that note, Bluestacks has recently been optimized for Windows 8 tablets including the Microsoft Surface Pro.

BlueStacks for Mac beta release brings 750,000 Android apps

The BlueStacks App Player has been available for Mac users, though, up until this point the app was an alpha release and the amount of available apps was rather limited. And for those not familiar with the BlueStacks App Player, this will allow Mac users to run Android apps on their OS X computer. This setup is also available for Windows users and some may be familiar with this setup under the ASUS@Vibe or AMD AppZone Player branding.

Qualcomm invests in BlueStacks Android player

Have you tried out BlueStacks? If you're reading this on a Windows PC, you really should - it's an impressively simple way to get Android apps onto your full-sized computer, and ever since the software's beta update, it's only gotten better. BlueStacks' success has not gone unnoticed: TechCrunch reports are surfacing that chip maker Qualcomm (you know, the Snapdragon people) has invested in the company after an unusually strong showing this month. The amount of dollars changing hands isn't clear, but sources say it's in the millions.

Bluestacks App Player hacked for root and Google Play Store access

The Bluetstacks Android app player is already a pretty cool little service: after its recent upgrade to Beta status, it can handle just about any Android app on a Windows PC. The beta can sync apps from your Android phone or tablet, or download them directly from third-party apps stores, but like Steve Austin, it can be so much more. Like any Android "device", if you want to make it better, stronger, faster, then you've got to root that sucker. XDA member xRepinsSporx did just that, and he's kindly showed the world how to follow suit. And yes, you can install the Google Play Store.

BlueStacks App Player for Windows enters beta

One of the more exciting non-hardware innovations to pop on the Android scene last year was BlueStacks, a comprehensive piece of Windows software that allowed Android apps to be downloaded and installed on standard PCs. The program has graduated from alpha and entered its first beta - download it from their website now. (Sorry Mac users - they're working on it.) The update brings a host of new features, better performance and integration - if you were turned off by a low featureset before, you'll definetely want to check it out now.
