Secondlife on Tablets – SL Go by OnLive

If ever there was a reason for me to go out and buy an Android tablet, this is it. Second Life on a mobile device.

I actually own an Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet, but that uses a version of Android that is customized by Amazon, So that you can only use apps downloaded via the Amazon App Store, not Google play. I will have to check if the SL Go Live app is available for Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablets too.

Regardless of my Tablet conundrums, this is very exciting stuff. With all the news about the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset and Second Life, and now this new way to log inworld via a Tablet, the world of Second Life is getting even more exciting and than it already is. Being abel to access SL from and using many different methods can only be a good thing to enhance our immerse experience.

The SL Go app renders all your SL avatars and stuff on their super servers and just sends the results to the Tablet, so in many instances so activities have apparently run faster on the tablet than a desktop. I haven’t tried it out yet but here are some links to some Top SL Bloggers who have already tried it out on their Android Tablets. There are some great screenshots and descriptions of the experience. I can’t wait to try it out.
