With the Onlive desktop app, any user can use their Win 7 OS on their Android powered tablet. With the title, ’Unleash your Tablet’, the people at Onlive have done a terrific job in bringing Win 7 to your fingertips.
It is compatible with the Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee TF101, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (and 10.1) and HTC Jetstream.
The app is based on San Francisco-based OnLive’s remote gaming technology, used to stream games onto PCs and other devices.
Launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, OnLive Desktop was initially made available just to Apple iPad owners.
The service will be expanded to other platforms over time, including smartphones, PCs, Macs, monitors, and even TVs.
Windows on Onlive runs on its own servers, where you can also save your files. While the app is free, various subscription plans range up to enterprise level.
The free, standard service provides 2GB of cloud storage so you can transfer files between OnLive Desktop on the tablet and other devices.
It provides access to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Adobe Reader on the tablet. Several other standard Windows desktop applications that come preinstalled in the free version include Notepad, WordPad, Windows Journal and Windows Media Player.
A Pro version starting at $9.99 a month will increase the cloud storage to 50GB instead of just 2GB.
