“Alien Dalvik” Will Run Android Apps Anywhere [VIDEO]

Remember that post a couple weeks ago about the Blackberry Playbook possibly being able to run Android apps? Well, if true, it looks like the Playbook won’t be the only guy in town. Open Handset Alliance member Myriad has just announced a tool called Alien Dalvik, which is Android’s Dalvik VM ported to other systems. This may sound like a bit of abracadabra to you, but it means you’ll be able to run Android apps on any platform, and without a disturbing lag. Alien Dalvik will run the majority of Android apps, but for the very device-dependent apps, there’s an add-on for the Android SDK.
