Pretty soon, you’ll be able to download, install and run Android software on your iPad. Yes, you read that correct! The developers of “Alien Dalvik“, a port of Dalvik virtual machine which is the software layer in Google’s Android operating system responsible for executing Android apps, have announced support for Apple’s iPad in Alien Dalvik version 2.0, according to SlashGear (via 9to5Mac). This will actually make the the unimaginable possible. The only question is though, “why would you want to run Android apps on your iPad?”.
From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik 2.0 is completely transparent and installed without user disruption. Users simply enjoy the same rich Android ecosystem they have become accustomed to via mobile on other key screens, such as playing Angry Birds on HDTV. This all while gaining faster access to a wider range of apps, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.
At the “Lets Talk iPhone” event, Scott Forstall said during iPhone 4S introduction that around 140,000 out of the 500,000 apps available on the App Store have been specifically designed for the iPad. While on the other hand, Android apps aren’t as pretty or delightful as their iOS counterparts.
