With Android, Iphone, WM7 phones competing with each other in the market, I was wondering if there are emulators of these phones available for download on PC to try out before buying. I know developers would use them but are they accessible to us? I suspect Iphone is a no go but WM7 and HTC Desire (or other android phones) should be? Anyone knows?

I did a google search using 'Phone OS emulator for PC' and came up with: http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=Phone+OS+emulator+for+PC&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

Looks like there are a few.... No experience with them. Can't vouch for anything other than the search. :P

I dont know about the others, apples probably out of the question same with windows phones, but you can get android in a android live CD Since it is open source you can download it free. I just downloaded it the other night, havent gotten around to trying it out yet though.
