I read an article a few months ago regarding some sort of software that can be used to virtualize the use of the Android OS in Windows 7. Similar like an emulator for Super Nintendo or Gameboy games but for the Android OS. I want to test out the OS to see which phone I'd like to go for, the iPhone (being more expensive) or one of the Android-powered phones under AT&T.

AT&T has the iPhone and Android phones priced about the same, last I checked.

or there's running it in a virtualbox option:

Might not be latest version but I think are working on them.

Also it's vanilla android not one with all customized options the OEMs offer.
