How our old devices could be revived in future?

I was just looking at this article http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2011/09/samsung-boosts-vmware-plan-to-virtualize-android-phones-tablets.ars and it gave me an idea. I see no reason why we can't use our pulses to run a virtualised instance of Android (the latest version) using software similar to this. It already works with Virtualbox/VNC/RDP clients from android market on the pulse. They work pretty well, only desktop OS's interfaces don't work so well with touch screen. I have used Onlive on my android and it works pretty well too, its a similar idea. It requires little processing power/memory as its basically streaming video. What I'd like to do is create a virtualbox style android os running on my main PC and remotely use it from my pulse over wifi (or even 3g/4g possibly when that gets faster). That way My old pulse can be used as if it were as powerful as my PC. I can't see samsung/vmware willing to allow us to do this as it would decrease their sales but just wondered if the OS community might have some interest in this? I think its worth holding out for before I give my pulse away.
