Compal CEO and AMD CMO to Speak at BlueStacks Launch Event at Computex 2011

BlueStacks will celebrate its company launch on May 31, 2011 from 1 - 3 p.m. at the W Taipei hotel. BlueStacks allows users to run Android applications on their x86-based Windows devices. The event will feature keynotes from CEOs, founders and corporate vice presidents from top-tier PC manufacturers and silicon vendors including Ray Chen, president and CEO of Compal, Nigel Dessau, chief marketing officer of AMD and Tim Bajarin, industry analyst for PC Magazine and principal at Creative Strategies. BlueStacks will also be exhibiting at Computex 2011 in the Nangang Exhibition Hall, room 614. The event will take place June 1 - 4.   

“BlueStacks is at the center of interesting currents in the industry today. Their technology underlines a visionary approach that seamlessly and harmoniously links a diverse set of devices via virtualized operating systems,” said Tim Bajarin. “And perhaps even more importantly, it acknowledges consumers’ lifestyles by delivering a single UI and apps environment that can be used on every one of their digital screens. If an x86 Windows machine can run Android seamlessly and be integrated into the Windows experience well, it gives new life to x86-based devices like those from AMD.”

Additional speakers include Evan Chiu, president and CEO of ICOP; Masao Suga, president of Onkyo Digital Solutions; David Chen, president and CEO of Shuttle Computer; and Rosen Sharma, president and CEO of BlueStacks. Each speaker will share his expert opinion on the future of the PC industry, the Android applications ecosystem, the importance of tablets, convertibles, and the battle between x86 and ARM. In addition, with the official launch of BlueStacks earlier this month, Sharma will share the vision and mission of the company and discuss the importance of creating a unified and seamless software experience on PC platforms through the simultaneous use of Windows and Android applications, multi-touch enablement and groundbreaking virtualization technology.

BlueStacks, which came out of stealth earlier this month announcing a $7.6 million Series A, will enable PC manufacturers to ride the momentum behind the Android ecosystem by enabling Android applications to be run on x86-based tablets, netbooks, notebooks or all-in-one (AIO) computers. With the new convertible form factors, BlueStacks completely eliminates the need to carry two devices. This in turn enables PC manufacturers to increase their margin on the devices and also benefit from the increase in the lifetime value of the customer because of all the application purchases and stickiness that comes from the user data and preferences.
