    Strange bedfellows: Microsoft could bring Android apps to Windows | The Verge

    I hope this never happens.

    Also, I find it weird that I read this on Crackberry before I saw it on WPC..

    I'll only be ok with this IF they only do this for the games, but leave the other malware android apps off. Games on every platform look 99.9% the same so its not like that would be a problem.

    This would be great for WP, but Microsoft has to allow only apps that aren't economically viable in WP. Local apps, niche apps, startups, etc.

    A second step would be a Metro API on top of the Android SDK, so devs can reuse most of the Android code but target each platform with its own UI.

    Again, IF this is being considered, my guess is that it is a "brain storming" session where ideas are tossed about and then they kick it to a set of engineers to evaluate it. These conversations happen a lot, and most go nowhere. For those looking to scream"ANDROID WINS: MICROSOFT LOSES!!", it is good headlines.

    I won't believe ot until I see it. This didn't help BB10 out at all, so I see no huge advantages for WP. (I could see games, like @jas00555, comment #3)

    Yes and that is my reason for leaving bb in the first place.... I want to be on a platform that has nothing to do with android or its app...
