PC on Android (HP Touchpad)

While I enjoy the android style games on my touchpad, I still prefer PC games. Have come across a few ways to play PC games on it: Gemrb to play old Bioware RPGs (Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment) [Was tricky to get BG1 working with widescreen mod due to needint to take android menu bar into account when choosing resolution - 1024 by 720); Heroes of Might and Magic 2 for strategy goodness using Free Heroes; Scummvm for old school adventure games (sierra, lucas arts, etc.); Infocom text adventures using different apps (twisty, zmpp); and dosbox variants to play some old school dos games (prefer dosbox turbo to andosbox so far, didnt mind paying as free adosbox is slow to update) [Can use wiimote to control it if I dont want keyboard but haven't found a way to quick switch between the two].
