I was browsing the ATI developer site and found this:

"AMD’s OpenGL ES 2.0 Emulator is designed to emulate functionality that will be exposed by future mobile AMD hardware. The purpose of this emulator is to aid developers in their design of OpenGL ES 2.0 games and applications. The emulator allows developers to get a head start designing their graphics code before hardware supporting OpenGL ES 2.0 is available, and even after this hardware becomes available developing on a PC is often advantageous due to superior developer and debugging tools."

Seems to be Windows only but doesn't need ATI hardware to work, thought it might be useful for people working on Pandora things, and people have asked in the past for a 'Pandora emulator'

Edit: For people wanting to download, you would need to sign up, but this bugmenot works: Username: bugmenot1 Password: bugmenot1

And uploaded here aswell:
"Future AMD OpenGL ES Hardware"? I wonder what they have up their sleeves.

Also other notes:

The emulator has three major features:

    * Support for core OpenGL ES 2.0 functionality
    * Support for many important OpenGL ES 2.0 extensions
    * Support for EGL 1.3 

Check the following before running the emulator:

    * Recommended hardware is ATI Radeon X1300 or higher. ATI Radeon 9500 is the minimum required hardware. Equivalent hardware from other vendors may work, but it is not tested.
    * If you are running ATI graphics hardware you should install the latest Catalyst drivers from AMD Support & Drivers.
    * Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
