Speeding up the Android Emulator

While attending the Android Bootcamp workshop at AnDevCon IV I learned that you can configure the Android emulator to perform much faster than it’s default configuration.  Once configured the Android emulator will take advantage of your GPU for graphics acceleration as well as special virtual machine instructions on supported CPUs.  The performance increase is dramatic so I highly recommend reconfiguring the emulator to take advantage of hardware acceleration.  You can find more information here (search for “Using Hardware Acceleration”)

It's only fair to share...
