Windows 8.1 PCs running Android apps expected at CES 2014

With CES 2014 only days away rumors are flying about different products that might turn up at the show. One of the rumors suggests that there will be a number of Windows 8.1 machines that turn up with the ability to run Android apps.

We've already see Asus tease a device that can dual boot Android and Windows 8.1. DigitalTrends expects that the machines that hit CES 2014 will be called "PC Plus" referring to a machine that can run Window s8.1 and Android apps.

The machines are tipped to be laptops, not tablets. The inclusion of Android apps might help sell windows machines. It's worth noting that running Android apps on Windows PCs isn't new, several emulators are out there that allow just that.

“There are three [possible] implementations, including dual-boot, which would be a fast-switch mode where you press a button and within seconds you’re in Android,” Moore told Computer World. Another approach includes the use of a virtual machine, though software emulation is a possibility as well.
