Both of your questions have been answered in the android dual boot thread but I shall answer them again here.
There is a difference between dual boot and emulator. The emulator (I say *the*, there are a few) compatibility is poor at best and performance can only be described as absolutely abysmal.
Dual boot is running natively, it isn't fully hardware accelerated video but the performance of the w700p is so far above that a regular android tablet in the first place that this doesn't matter, its no biggy. But it is running on x86 whereas android is usually for ARM. Drivers for x86 builds are usually poor, although the w700p is pretty well off in that regard (I think bluetooth and GPS are missing, double check the original thread), on the w700p is pretty usable anyway. The google services framework and play store are not open source software though so custom android ROM's (including android-ia) cannot include them, these need sideloading from your device, again check the thread as details for how to do this are in there. After this you can use the play store fine, but some apps will not appear in the store and some may not work at all. Because the device is unrecognised, some apps which are limited to appearing for certain devices (which is one hell of alot) will not appear. Android apps are usually platform independent but some performance critical tasks can be done in a platform dependent way, a few popular 3d games do this, some apps doing this have both ARM and x86 versions of the app but most don't bother because x86 android devices are rare, as such they cannot run.
