I guess im quite late about this information and I just knowing it a few days ago. As we know, the latest android OS is android ice cream sandwich 4.0, and the 1st smart phone using it  is Samsung Nexus. Back to the topic, actually, we can use our PC as a platform to test run all the android apps.

All the free android games and apps can be use on PC by installing the android OS. As long as you have your touch pad, you can use all the touch function such as zoom in or out picture, switching desktop and etc. Here I give you few steps on how to install android OS in your PC or Laptops.
