Android-x86 - Ice Cream Sandwich
You can boot into Windows, or you can boot into Linux. Or, you can boot into Android too! While running Android apps on your computer is easy – you need emuators like BlueStacks, running Android itself on your PC is a different case. Using some virtualization tools, you could be rocking a legal version of Jellybean on your PC. Here’s how:
The quick and dirty Google Android 4.3 installation instructions for Windows shared earlier were not perfect and resulted in slow performance. Free virtualization utility Virtualbox offers an superior alternative to QEMU based virtualization used in the previous approach offering much superior working experience and performance benefits. Here's a complete picture-guide to get Google Android 4.3 x86 working in Windows using Oracle VirtualBox.
Using Android on a Desktop PC can have multiple usage scenarios, for example testing of android applications, mobile-websites or using Android applications and games like WhatsApp from PC. While using a virtual machine is an easy way to get what's needed, it results in performance degradation, being an open-source project there are now native x86 architecture ports available for PC users like SocketQ and Project Android-x86.
Set of patchs to made a configuration file of physical Spanish keyboard from Spain (and for any other language) for Android x86 4.0 RC2, incorpore other patch like arm emulator for can run APP with have ARM code. This project is made from original files of official web "http://www.android-x86.org".
It looks like Intel decided to update most of its smartphones carrying its Atom-based chipset to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich this month. No later than last week Lava XOLO X900 got its long-awaited Android 4.0 ICS update and today it looks like another Intel-powered device is about to get the same upgrade, the Orange San Diego.
Lava XOLO X900 has been recently discounted in India in order to improve the smartphone's sales. However, the fact that the device is still stuck on an older version of Android, namely Gingerbread, makes customers a bit reluctant.
AnTuTu Benchmark is an benchmarking tool for Android Mobile Phone/Pad. It can run a full test of a key project, through the "Memory Performance","CPU Integer Performance","CPU Floating point Performance","2D 3D Graphics Performance","SD card reading/writing speed","Database IO" performance testing, and gives accurate analysis for Andriod smart phones.

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10 10.1"; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth dual OS tablet supports both Windows and Android operating systems. It's your choice for the best mobile entertainment and productivity tools.
Set up Androidon your netbook or install it on your PC in VirtualBox. Run games like Angry Birds or Amazing Alex perfectly, or just try out Android apps without the need for an Android device.
One of the known issues for Android-x86 4.0-RC2 is no Ethernet supports. So you will not get Internet connection on some devices and VirtualBox using the official Android-x86 builds. However, you may use a custom Android-x86 4.0-RC2 build by Ron M. This custom build has integrated an Ethernet patch (for Internet connection) and Intel's ARM libraries to run ARM applications. So you don't have to get hands dirty by altering computer code and files.
My little demonstration of the Android operating system, or rather the port to x86 computers. They recently added an ARM emulator, which allows the system to run ARM applications, so I decided to have a look.
A short Android-X86 4.0.4 (ICS) RC2 demo video, running in VirtualBox. This is a custom build that adds Ethernet support; the official builds don't support Ethernet by default. More info, installation and so on @ WebUpd8: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/07/android-x86-404-ics-rc2-released-with.html
The Android-x86 project is glad to announce 4.0-RC2 release to public. This is a second release candidate for Android-x86 4.0 stable release. The 4.0-RC2 release is based on the Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich branch). We have fixed and added x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on x86 platforms, especially for tablets and netbooks.
Android x86 early adopters had various compatibility issues running Android on x86 CPU in the past. Now Android on x86 has getting better development and support. Thanks to the developers who spent many hours to hack to make things work. Buildroid's mastermind Daniel Fages who builds "Buildroid for VirtualBox" successfully runs ARM apps on Android x86 platforms.
