  1. Making Android apps available on Windows devices would be a double-edged sword. Microsoft’s first choice would obviously be for native Windows apps to be available in comparable numbers to those for iOS and Android. If Windows 10 on phones could run Android apps then that would instantly close the app gap but may well stifle interest in native Windows app development, affecting both phones and larger devices. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft resist the temptation to do so at first, thus giving Windows 10 a chance to stand on its own two feet. If it looks like interest in Windows app development is increasing significantly then they may just stick with that. If there isn’t a significant increase in developer interest though, they may well bite the bullet and let Android apps in.
