OnLive launches Android-compatible Desktop app

Users of Android tablets can now install the OnLive Desktop app (free, Android Market) to access Windows apps. The new version mirrors the iPad edition with cloud access to a virtual machine with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as Adobe Reader for non-web PDFs. There is also 2GB of cloud storage included to save the resulting work.

OnLive Desktop Plus is also available for $5 per month, adding accelerated browsing through Internet Explorer with both Flash and PDF support.

The experience promises to be faster than on current iPads, in some cases, through the 4G support on some Android tablets. Switching between an iPad and Android tablet will give users access to their cloud-based files.

OnLive promises to bring the app to smartphones, PCs, Macs, and other devices soon. Also coming soon is OnLive Desktop Pro, which will cost $10 per month and offers 50GB of cloud storage, enterprise support, and more features in addition to all the features of Desktop Plus.
