SocketeQ's WindowsAndroid lets you run Android 4.0 natively on Windows

It's a quintessential human aspiration: to desire the best of both worlds. And SocketeQ, the rapidly expanding Chinese startup, now help technology enthusiasts to fulfill this need with the launch of their innovative "WindowsAndroid" application. The app allows users to host almost the entire Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) suite on their Windows-based computer systems. According to reliable sources, SocketeQ have formulated WindowsAndroid after years of painstaking research focusing on virtualization, user interface, and display capabilities.

Here's more about this exceedingly ingenious app:
1) The WindowsAndroid app is engineered for devices operating on Windows Vista, 7, and 8 user interfaces. Note that the app is designed to harmoniously work with regular Windows applications like Windows Media Player and Flash. This integration and operating smoothness is primarily due to the app not relying on standard virtualization configurations, as is the case with other earlier applications.

2) WindowsAndroid is 64.8 megabytes in size and may be downloaded from SocketeQ's portal. Upon installation, the app occupies roughly 300 megabytes of space.

3) Android 4.0.3 is the precise version of Ice Cream Sandwich that is presently employed. SocketeQ claim that Android's latest iteration is in the pipeline and will shortly be made available to users.

4) WindowsAndroid essentially harnesses the Dalvik mechanism to enable Android-based applications on Windows systems. With WindowsAndroid running, users can perform routine Android tasks such as web surfing, managing emails, playing games, and configuring settings. To control the app, users need to utilize an input device (such as a mouse) or else possess a touchscreen-enabled computer system, of course running a compatible Windows version.

5) WindowsAndroid can accommodate a wide variety of user interface screen resolutions – even a top-rated resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. Moreover, the app's inherent infrastructure facilitates other multiple display options such as full-screen view, windowing view, window scaling in windowing view, and the competence to exchange full-screen and windowing views.

6) As indicated earlier, WindowsAndroid is geared to fully operate with input and output contrivances such as mice, keyboards, consoles, and external remote controls.

7) The app also possesses Ethernet capabilities including support for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE).

8) There is even an inbuilt facility to reboot WindowsAndroid by employing APK files and inserting the same into the relevant app directory. Thus the dual-booting process is conveniently obviated.

9) Additional noteworthy attributes of the app are as under:
• The app supports porting for Android infrastructure as well as auxiliary projects.
• Hardware acceleration has been primed for maximum graphics performance.
• There is also support for inter-process communication (IPC) porting and enhancement.

A Known Concern
Incongruity with Google applications is the chief concern plaguing the WindowsAndroid app. Indeed, inveterate Google users have reported operating and compatibility issues when simultaneously running the app.

According to SocketeQ, the current WindowsAndroid is a nascent model and intensive efforts are on for a more complete version that will iron out the above operating issues. Overall, though, the existing app is still an ingenious departure from the run-of-the-mill and ought to provide hours of entertainment for general users and programming experts alike.
