We may still be waiting for the iPad version to become available here in the UK, but the OnLive Desktop service—which provides remote access to a server-powered version of Windows 7—is now available for Android Tablets.

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 only been tested on a select number of tablets, which includes the Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee TF101, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, and HTC Jetstream. Download the OnLive App now and start plugging away. [Android Market and OnLive]
