Download Google Play Apps without device?

view story

http://androidforums.com – Silly question but are you able to download apps from Google Play even though you don't have a device associated with your Gmail/Google account? I'm currently using an iPhone 4 and am waiting the release of the Note 2. I was trying to "pre-download" apps in preparation for my new phone however I'm not seeing anything like that available. Am I just going to have to wait until I get my phone and then start downloading away? I'm new to this in case you haven't figured it out :) Thanks. (General)
