OnLive Desktop Now Available For Android Tablets

OnLive Desktop Now Available For Android Tablets

Just like with the iPad, the OnLive Desktop service — which provides remote access to a server-powered version of Windows 7 — is now available for Android tablets for the same five bucks a month.

Gizmodo AU Editor’s Note: OnLive technically isn’t available in Australia, but here’s a hack that may give you unofficial access.

Because Android supports mouse input, it brings a dimension to OnLive Desktop the iPad lacked, but still supports all the same multitouch gestures as before. Surprsingly, the app isn’t Honeycomb and Ice Cream sandwich exclusive, and works with Android 2.3 as well. But it’s limited to a select number of tablets, which include the Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee TF101, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, and HTC Jetstream. If you have one of those devices, you can download the OnLive App now and start plugging away. [Android Market and OnLive]
