It took a little bit longer for OnLive and its partner HTC, at least it was announced back in February to bring the OnLive experience to smartphones and tablet, but finally OnLive hit the Android Market. OnLive cloud gaming is a revolutionary new concept in video games that instantly delivers the latest top-tier high-performance games on demand through the Internet to Android tablets or phones - with the simplicity of streaming video. No big downloads, no limits on performance. With OnLive, gamers have instant access to console-class games, running on OnLive's powerful servers in the cloud. Gamers can start playing a high-end game within seconds of signing on. Even if you don't own any games, OnLive provides free demos of nearly all games offered on the service.

Play OnLive games anywhere, anytime on almost any OnLive-compatible device, whether tablet, phone, TV or computer. Your games, saves and user profile are always stored in the cloud so you start a game on one device, and continue where you left off on another - even multiplayer gameplay is cross-platform. Build your library without taking up any space on your Android device. Furthermore you can watch live games being played worldwide in OnLive's exclusive massive spectating Arena, find your friends and set up multiplayer matches, or post Brag Clip videos of your greatest moments to your OnLive profile or Facebook wall.

The OnLive app requires at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has been tested on the following devices: Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, HTC Evo View, HTC Flyer, HTC Jetstream, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Sony Ericsson Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive, HTC EVO, HTC Nexus One, HTC Rezound 4G, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL, Motorola Droid 2, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola DROID BIONIC 4G, Motorola DROID RAZR 4G, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy S II 4G.

The Universal OnLive Wireless Controller has been tested with the Acer Iconia Tab A500, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Toshiba Thrive.

OnLive is now available in North America and the UK only but is said to continue expanding into Europe and Asia soon.
