    Emulation of Android on a computer is available through using the SDK. Lifehacker have a good walkthrough of setting up a virtual emulation of an Android device on a Windows machine here: http://lifehacker.com/5587260/how-to-test-drive-android-on-your-pc-without-buying-a-phone . This should cover the emulation of Android, but TouchWiz might be a little more difficult.

    These virtual devices are full installs of the Android operating system, and if there is a way of installing TouchWiz on a normal Android phone (try searching for 'TouchWiz for Froyo') it will be possible to install it on a virtual phone. You can install applications in apk files using 'adb', a debug tool. A quick search of 'install apk with adb' should yield many results.

    I hope this helps!

    I have tried doing this but whenever i create an AVDand select API 10, the skin does not show in drop down.

    I am using 32 bit windows.

    Do the following to create the Samsung Galaxy S2 skin:

    1. Download the skin from the Samsung page (follow the link posted by anshumans)
    2. Go to directory [Android-SDK directory]/platforms/android-10/skins
    3. Create a new directory named GALAXY_S2
    4. Extract all files from the downloaded ZIP file to the new directory
    5. Edit the file manifest.ini and change the line api=9 to api=10
    6. Start the AVD and click "New..."
    7. Under Target select "Android 2.3.3 - API Level 10"
    8. Under Skin choose "GALAXY_S2" from the dropdown list
    9. Click "Create AVD"

    As you may have noticed the AVD will be based upon the Android API 10 level. So the Galaxy S2 skin won't show up if you choose the target Android API level 16 for example.

    thanks for this.

    I am following this procedure only. But when i reach step 7, I do not see the "GALAXY_S2" in the device drop down.

    My device list never refreshes on chnaging the SDK API version. For example it keeps showing for API 17 only. When i chnage to 2.3.3 API 10, still it shows the same device list.
