Mobile software specialist Myriad is preparing to launch new software that allows non-Android-based smartphones to run apps designed for Google's mobile operating system.
The software, known as Alien Dalvik, will allow non-Android operating systems to run Android Package (APK) files with little modification, the company said in an announcement on Tuesday.
"The proliferation of Android has been staggering, but there is still room for growth," said Simon Wilkinson, chief executive of the Myriad Group, in a statement. "By extending Android to other platforms, we are opening up the market even further, creating new audiences and revenue opportunities."
