How to install Android 3.0 Honeycomb and test it on Windows 7 Computer
If you are already excited looking at Android 3.0 Honeycomb Features which is said to be awesome OS for Tablets, then try it on your Windows computer using emulator without actually buying any Android 3.0 Tablet.
1. Download Android 3.0 SDK from official site. I recommend Installer version for maximum simplicity. It will prompt to you to install Java SE Development Kit if not already installed.
2. When the installation is complete, program will self run and you’ll be asked to choose packages to install. From here, you have select only Android 3.0 components necessary.
By default, all are checked as Accept and hence, you will have to Reject components by selecting them individually except Android SDK Platform-tools, version 3 and Android Platform SDK 3.0, API11, Revision 1
3. After downloading and installation of above components is finished, create AVD (Android Virtual Device). You need to take care of every step and whether you are getting errors. If you continue with errors, probably the Honeycomb system won’t boot up as well. So perform the steps carefully.
4. Start the created Virtual Device.
First Boot will take few minutes but be patient and wait for device to start.
