If you had any doubts about Windows 8 being en route, let this squash 'em. Acer has just introduced their latest Ultrabooks, and both of them sport touch panels. That's right: laptops with touchscreens. It's real, and while it never really made sense in the past, Windows 8 (and the Metro user interface) changes that paradigm. The new Aspire...

With E3 coming up this week, it's obvious that gaming gear is going to be in the spotlight here soon. But we can't say we expected Sony to be one of the companies introducing new gaming headsets. Nevertheless, the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset (Elite Edition) has been revealed, with a product name that's almost as long as the time you'll have...

BlueStacks

Earlier this week, ASUS took some time to go ahead and create a rather obscure video for what they will be presenting at this week's Computex 2012 showcase in Taipei, though they forgot to include anything relevant in the video. Nothing Android was mentioned, nothing Windows was mentioned though it did manage to spark much conversation about a dual-booting Android Windows 8 tablet.

As it seems now, it was to highlight their partnership with BlueStacks as the company has issued a press release fully announcing the partnership. BlueStacks, as you know if you read our review, enables over 450,000 Android apps to run on Windows PCs and now, ASUS will be leveraging that power for their own PC ventures and including BlueStacks within their @vibe platform.

"ASUS has created a phenomenal software experience on PCs. Launching with ASUS at Computex 2012 solidifies BlueStacks' leadership position as the sole provider of apps for consumer electronics and PC manufacturers worldwide," said Rosen Sharma, President and CEO of BlueStacks. "Our strong portfolio of apps from top developers, combined with our unique monetization engine makes this a revenue-generating opportunity for PC OEMs. This is a winning proposition for the entire PC ecosystem. App developers who have already built for Android can now just run their apps on Windows PCs through BlueStacks. We've done the heavy lifting for the benefit of all."

Together, ASUS and BlueStacks will be offering users of asus@vibe Android apps through their broad line of products including the ZenBooks, notebooks, Eee PCs, desktop PCs and All-in-one PCs. Pricing for it all seems rather wish washy at the moment as the press release notes, apps will be free for six months and then users can upgrade from there to unlimited apps and sync apps from phone to PC.

For those of you out there hoping for some other sort of news though, there is still some hope we suppose. This all could only be one portion of something greater, just don't get too bummed out if this happens to all it was in the end. You can jump below for the full press release from ASUS  and BlueStacks.
