Great news for anyone who wants to bring more PC capabilities to their Android smartphone or tablet: The Next Web reports that popular Windows app emulator Wine will soon be coming to Android. According to The Next Web, chief Wine developer Alexandre Julliard has been working on porting the emulator to Google’s (GOOG) open source mobile operating system and started showing off how Wine would work on Android over the weekend in Belgium. Although The Next Web says that the port probably won’t be ready “for some time,” this will definitely be something to follow for Android fans who want to bring their favorite PC apps over to their mobile devices.
