    Hi All,

    This is a very general question which strikes in my mind.Android SDK comes up with the functionality where we can test our code before deoploying that on actual device.
    Now as per the difference between Emulator and Simulator it should called a Simulator because it is a software.But on Android's official site developer.android.com they constantly used the term Emulator.I am confused which is correct?

    Question is simple yet very important and worth to have a answer of it.

    It is an Emulator, not like the iPhone Simulator.

    But how??? Because Emulator is something which deals with Hardware.
    I want explanation not just answer.
