Lenovo has teamed up with BlueStacks to pre-load Android apps on Idea-branded PCs. BlueStacks is an emulator which can run 750,000 Android apps on PC. You can control the apps with keyboard and mouse or touch screen without any issue. The App Player will be pre-loaded on all of its Idea-branded line of PCs, including Ideapad laptops and IdeaCentre desktops, a total of around 40 million systems in 2013.

This is BlueStacks's largest distribution deal ever. Last year the company formed partnerships with Asus, MSI, and AMD.

BlueStacks is also planning to unveil a new version of its App Player designed specifically for Windows 8, when Microsoft will bring its Surface Pro tablet to market.

Will the pre-loaded version totally free?


I heard that the App Player is free for the time being. The final version will carry a cost.
