asteroza + store + ec2   1 Test Drive: Try apps right now on your computer
Amazon uses android VM's running on EC2 to allow people to test drive apps on the Amazon Android app store, using a web interface to deal with touching the android screen. The real killer feature is a cloud android instance running at full power. NTT was doing research on linked pairs of android (a local instance on the phone, sending API calls and whatnot to it's stronger twin in the cloud), which is also similar to Intel research into heterogeneous cloud cluster OS's.
