    From what i read this task you're trying to do only works with some special phones which is made for Android app developement..

    Im not 100% sure this is true.. But i think there should be some way to develop with the Galaxy S plugged in instead of an Emulator.

    Try "App Inventor" It works there.. I tried that..

    Any android phone can be used for development. There are no "special phones."
    In order to do what you wish, in eclipse, create a new run configuration and make sure on the AVD tab, you select manual (automatic requries you to select an AVD)., then, when you run that run configuration you can select your device--provided it is plugged in, and you have the proper USB drivers installed.
