    Yes, it is possible to create such emulator with certain limitations. Both in functionality and in performance.

    The Nokia 500 has only 256MB of RAM and no 3D hardware acceleration, so, an Android (Dalvik VM) emulator might, indeed, not run that well, even if one was available.

    One such product (which not available for Symbian based phones; at least not yet): http://www.myriadgroup.com/software/...%20dalvik.aspx

    Oh, I have not checked the RAM indeed. However the 1 GHz CPU does not sound bad. Single-process emulation may really be possible, with simulating a handful of system services only - not an entire phone.
    Accelerated 3D (and the lack of it) is over-discussed in the other thread, http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...Symbian-Phone.

    it will be a great tool that symbian could run android apk files. As android is open source, it will be great to run applications inside symbian OS.

    This will bring symbian to top1 in the market.

    Probably not, unless they decide to release it for free. Nokia is not interested in paying for such, I bet, and individual developers are unlikely to, either, and very few users would pay for it (not enough to warrant the development, productization, support costs). Nice idea, technically possible to create, but lousy business case.
