At the beginning of this year, I reviewed Onlive, an application that made it possible for you to get Windows 7 on your iPad. Now there’s good news for Android users as well. Onlive.com, the cloud computing and instant-play video game services company has launched the app for Android too! This app was extremely popular when first released for the iPad, and since the app is free, you can check it out and simplify your documentation work while on the go. Experience Office 2010 and Windows 7 on Android devices now.
The OnLive Desktop app for Android runs on Android 2.3 and up and has been tested on Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee TF101, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 and HTC Jetstream.

The app features include the ability to view, edit, and create Office 2010 documents on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. PowerPoint users can create graphs, animations and videos and even present the content directly form the tablet.
You can sync your Office documents on the PC with your mobile devices.

The app boasts of extremely smooth and fluid streaming and responsiveness even when playing animation and video. But you probably need to have a powerful Internet connection if you want a flawless experience.
There’s not too much you can do with the free services you get when you sign up for an account, but you must appreciate the fact that you can get a genuine licenced version of Microsoft Office 2010 with 2 GB storage for free.
OnLive currently has a couple of pricing plans that you can check out here.
OnLive is available only in select countries so check before you set up the account/download the app.
