When I test the application from Eclipse, it always takes me almost 10~15 minutes to see the result on AVD.
My OS: windows 7
CPU : Pentium D 805
RAM: 2G
SDK: java 6 + Android 2.1

Are there some ways to improve this situation?

Dos the Simulator initially takes this much time to start or each time you run your program?? On my system the simulator takes about 5 mins to start, but after that subsequent running of the application is quick as the simulator is already on...

Yeah, first run of the emulator usually takes longer;
Also, some folks close the emulator and restart again every time they deploy the application. I hope you are not doing that.

Kevin,
Try to increase the memory allocation for simulator.
i.e increase avd space.

I hope you have read what Monu said, if you close the emulator after each time you run the app, don't do that. Keep the emulator open and close it only when you have completed your android work and close eclipse...
