BlueStacks, which brought Android apps on PCs and Macs is now considering a version for Windows RT. It means more than 700,000 Android apps could run on ARM-based Surface RT tablet.

BlueStacks' RT intentions were aired by one of its employees in a support forum a month ago but gained wide exposure this week when the company announced its software hit the five million download mark.

After several forum users asked the company about its RT plans, they got the following reply from BlueStacks engineer Deepak Sharma:

"We appreciate your taking the time to use BlueStacks. We are considering offering BlueStacks for Windows R/T next year."

Now that would make me buy RT tablets. I hope the performance will be good.

I got one question in term of business. Is bluestack helping Android to boost its app productivity.

When you release this for Windows RT, people would lose their focus from Windows Store apps and switch to bluestack, keeping the performance in mind. Same can happen to developers...
