OnLive Desktop for Android tablets now available
OnLive rose to fame with its cloud-based gaming platform. In a nutshell, it enables smartphone and tablet users to play high-quality video games by handling all the heavy computing remotely and streaming back a video of the action to the user's device. Later, the company released OnLive Desktop, which provided a cloud-based Windows 7 desktop environment and worked in a similar fashion. However, it was only available on the iPad at launch.

Fortunately, OnLive Desktop has just been made available for Android tablets as well. And just like its iPad version, it is free to download and use. It provides a fully working Windows 7 desktop environment and comes with goodies like Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Also, if you intend on using OnLive Dekstop professionally, you might be interested in OnLive Plus, which features internet browsing at gigabit speeds and access to other cloud storage service, Dropbox being one of them. The Plus version of the service is priced at $4.99 per month.

At this time, OnLive Desktop requires Android 2.3 or later and is guaranteed to work on the Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola XOOM, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and HTC Jetstream. If you are interested, a download link has been provided below for your convenience.
