    Display Android screen on PC

    Does anybody have a method of displaying the output of an android phone (running 2.1) on a PC? I don't need to control it from the PC (although that would be nice if it were easy to do) but in order to do a demo on a projector I need to be able to get the phone output on the PC.

    Thanks for any advice

    I haven't seen or heard of a way of doing this, however if you download the SDK there is an Android emulator you can install apps on to and run on a PC

    Android Developers

    Sourceforge has Ashot to download. Andoid screen capture.

    Thanks for that - I'll see if the apps I want to demo will work on there. It would be nice to do it with a real phone though as I want to show stuff like Google Goggles.

    I meant to say in the first post - I've seen some methods that require the phone to be rooted; I'm not really up for doing that at this stage.

    Thanks for those suggestions, both Ashot and Android Screencast look like they'll do it.

    Cheers
