While this has been around for a while now, it is not an ideal way to test Android in my opinion. Performance was horrible to say the least. I don't know if this was specific to the machine I tried this on, or was common. But I found a different solution which some may enjoy more...

For those that have HTC phones, check out There you can find Android images that can either replace your WinMo OS, or dual boot. You can even install Android on your SD card and simply start it just like any other application. It will restart the phone in Android. This is great in that you can now get real world usage of Android.
