If you want you can use the different emulators,  by default along with Xamrin you will get android emulator, but its little bit slow.
Here is one third party tool you can use for android emulators, It will support from windows 7 onwards.

Another good tool is Hyper V Emulator : Download but there are some compatabilty problems with windows 7 so those are having windows 8 can go with this emulator.
