Dive Into Mobile: Windows 7 on iPad and Galaxy Tab

SAN FRANCISCO — During a demo at Dive Into Mobile, serial entrepreneur Steve Perlman showed off new applications running on the OnLive streaming game network, which debuted in 2009.

In addition to streaming video games from data centers to PCs and TVs, OnLive is using its network to stream a virtualized Windows desktop to devices including Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Android-based Galaxy Tab.

That enabled Perlman to show the iPad and the Tab running Internet Explorer and the Windows 7 desktop. He also showed a Microsoft Silverlight application running on the iPad and Apple’s Quicktime software running on the Galaxy Tab.

“You have unlimited capability because of the supercomputing” that’s happening in data centers and streamed to the mobile devices, Perlman said.

Perlman, a former Apple engineer, co-founded WebTV and sold it to Microsoft. Then he created the Moxi set-top box company and sold it to Paul Allen.

There was no word on whether he’s hoping to sell OnLive to someone else from Redmond.
