BlueStacks' GamePop Android Console Brings Apple iOS Games to TV

[titlle]

BlueStacks becomes first company to bring Apple's iPhone, iPad games to your television with free game controller. GamePop gaming console is powered by Google Android. Company has officially revealed to achieve a land mark of 10+ million installations. GamePop console will initially support Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Win-7 and Macintosh OS. Company has recently announced to bring power of millions of free and premium Android games to your doorstep via a console and beautiful controller. Google Play Stores games are not yet released for traditional television via virtualization technology but iOS games are now available to play on TV.

GamePop has only one competitor in market which is Ouya. It is a massive public funded project which is expected to release soon and accepting pre-release orders at $99.99 value with console and controller. Ouya is Android based with completely open source code. Both these projects are yet not released and still we cannot anticipate the progress ahead of public trial. The official representative of the BlueStacks, John Gargiulo, briefed 9To5Mac about the process of bringing iPhone and iPad games to television. He said that “Looking Glass” technology is used mainly to clout such experience. Looking Glass is a codename of technology developed solely by them. The advanced Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are designed to bridge the gap between app and television.

Technical experts do not see any response from Apple Inc. about this new initiative. Apple is launching its own Apple-TV which is in development. John said that GamePop will not be advertised with iOS games. These will be available as add-ons to the normal 500+ Android games. BlueStacks has started taking pre-orders with exclusive discount till June. The pricing structure starts with $129 value initially and $6.99 per month separate subscription fee. A separate option of $250 is also given which delivers 500+ paid games for free. On your first order company will charge extra $9.95 shipping inside US and $19.99 outside US.

Company has signed a distribution deal recently with AMD and Asus to give 750,000 Google Android games to their Lenovo systems. Chief Executive Officer Rosen Sharma is pushing its products to justify the heavy investments of $15 million from the below mentioned investors. BlueStacks Company has investments from Ignition Partners (a leading investor in software and communication technology companies), Indian Investment Firm Helion Ventures Partners, Radar Partners (Wordpress investor), California based Andreessen Horowitz and Redpoint Ventures. Their boards of directors include Rosen Sharma - CEO, Kevin Compton - Investor and Board member from Radar Partners and Frank Artale.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
