  1. Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 is apparently quite capable of running a Game Boy emulator, on Silverlight and all. The emulator is still a work in progress, but the important thing to remember is that it works so far, opening up the possibility for many more emulators for the platform.

    I'm using a WP7... no emulators yet :p I don't know what the accessibility is of the above emulators, but either way, I'll wait to see what happens with Microsoft and their potential openness with the homebrew community before I go about jail-breaking my phone.

    Supposedly MS is adding a "Homebrew Market" where things like this could be placed. Time will tell how much MS embraces the homebrew devs.
     
  4. I've been using emulators on my pocket pc since the early 2000's.. what's the holdup for the phones?

    Coolbeans. replay all my favorite gameboy/NES/SNES games on my phone... far better than most of the games you can get nowadays... Nintendo should take a hint and look into expanding Virtual Console to phones and even their own handhelds (looking at you DS...), I know a dozen people with flashcarts for their DSs (some of them moved to PSP) to play japanese games/older games that would probably pay for the download to play natively.
     
  6. I've been using ScummVM on my android. A lot of the games work well with the touch interface.
