This week is the start of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the event today, OnLive announced some new features that their users have been waiting for, for quite some time.
Today they announced the release of their free, OnLive Desktop app. The app will be available on iPad, Android devices, PCs, Macs and TVs. However, it will initially only be available for the iPad. The Desktop App will be available for download in the iTunes App Store starting on Thursday in the United States, and soon thereafter in the UK.
The app will include access to full-featured, media-rich Windows 7 applications. These applications will be remotely hosted on powerful PC servers in the cloud, similar to those that OnLive currently uses for its cloud gaming service.
