    So those n00bs like Uncle Din who want to run and see the live CD / live USB Google Android on a PC /Laptop and see what it is, how it works etc, it is pretty easy now.

    Want to give Google Android a try, but don't feel like buying a T-Mobile G1? LiveAndroid lets you download a LiveCD disc image of the Google Android operating system. Just burn the image to a disc, stick it in a CD-ROM drive, and reboot your computer and you can check out Android without installing it or affecting any files on your PC.

    You can also use the disc image in a virtualization application like VirtualBox, VMWare or Microsoft Virtual PC if you want to try the operating system without even rebooting your computer.


    Go to -

    http://code.google.com/p/live-android/

    or directly to

    http://code.google.com/p/live-android/wiki/readme

    To get the iso file

    Just burn that to a CD (burning ISO files in the proper way ;) ) and thats it.

    I just tested and it is working fine on Thinkpad R50e. Really nice.

    Go to the second link, if you prefer to get the ISO as a single file. I mean

    http://code.google.com/p/live-android/wiki/readme

    Scroll down where it says

    you also can download ISO image directly from mirror,

    liveandroid v0.2 liveCD mirror:


    Below there are direct link to the full ISO file.

    Or use the split files listed in the first link.
