Somehow, saying that I love AMIDuOS manages to be a bit of an understatement. The concept — an Android emulator for Windows machines — is great, but it has the added advantage of actually working pretty well in practice.
From the official press release:
Now, Androidâ„¢Lollipop is just as sweet on WindowsÂ®PCs.With the latest edition of AMIDuOSâ„¢ – version 2.0 – users can enjoy the latest and great Android apps right on their Microsoft WindowsÂ® 7.x, 8.x or 10 devices.
The new, Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop) compatible version of AMIDuOS is available for download from www.amiduos.comfor a $15 lifetime license â€“with a 30â€“day free trial. AMIDuOS, which delivers a full Android experience to Windows desktops, laptops or tablets, was created by American Megatrends, Inc., the number one BIOS vendor in the world by shipment volume.
In addition, AMI will continue to make AMIDuOS 1.x, which supports Android 4.3 (Jellybean), availablefor only $10. Current users who installed AMIDuOS 1.x before Aug 7th can get a free upgrade to AMIDuOS 2.0 upon registering their licensed copy. The upgrade process is simple â€“ and AMIDuOS even preserves all previously installed apps and settings during the upgrade from 1.x to 2.0!
AMI founder and President Subramonian Shankar reaffirms the company’s focus on bringing Android to Windows. â€œPeople should be able to run their Android apps on any device they wish,â€ he says. â€œWe created AMIDuOS to make it easy for anyone to get the full Android experience on their Windows machines. Now, even the most recent Android apps developed for Android 5.0.1 will run smoothly and with full compatibility on the Windows platform.â€
The backup and update process was easy enough, and the program itself feels even smoother the previous build.
