The ThinkPad Tablet 2 runs the Windows 8 operating system. The Google Play store sells applications for the Android operating system which is used by the original ThinkPad Tablet 1, as well as many other tablets and smartphones.

 

If you want to run Android applications on the TPT2 there is software, http://www.bluestacks.com/ , that purports to do this. This is relatively new software. When I tried it a month or so ago it didn't work well. Moreover it didn't allow downloading from Google Play. But that may have changed by now.
