For those of you that want to have your cake and eat it to there’s a new technology called Alien Dalvik that will one day allow Android apps to run on the iPad platform. In Alien Dalvik 2.0 the virtualization software will allow apps designed for the Android OS to run on Apple’s iPad. This technology functions similar to a virtual machine in where the app will run in a virtual environment on the iOS platform. This provides the ability for Android to run on iOS, but there’s got to be some sort of performance degradation. I just can’t see the virtual version of an app running like it’s standard counterpart, but if you want to have an Android experience on an iPad you’ll just have to suck it up bub.
At this time the Alien Dalvik 2.0 tech hasn’t been seen in the wild, but we should see it in action as early as next week. Supposedly it’ll be debuted at CTIA 2011 next week, so I’ll be keeping my ear to the street to see how this interesting venture works out. I guess after using both I can’t really see a reason to run Android apps on the iPad, but with anything geek it’s always cool to know that you have the option.
