I'm drooling here. This is what Android was designed for - forget phones etc. :P

Indeed, but it's already better than PSP as we can code for it! ') =D

Fast response BTW!

Less of the mean - you've given way too much help, support and assistance to me and the community to be considered mean. =D

Psx and N64 emulation are very good, 50 fps with sound in Crash Bandicoot.

Ok now that's the sort of Android device I'd program for, forget these phones (I really don't like mine) and tablets.
Mat. 5: 14 - 16

Android: Toshiba Thrive Tablet (3.2), Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (4.1.2).
Netbook: Samsung N150+ Netbook (Win 7 32-bit + Ubuntu 11.10).
Desktop: Intel i5 Desktop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (Win 8.1 64-bit).

No, but I would expect the price to come down rapidly, especially when competitors start appearing.

However, you also have to remember that the high cost of the machine is offset by the low cost of the software.

Very impressive. Alternatively, if you already have a fast Android device getting a clip-on like iControlPad and buying a few emulators would give you the same capabilities.

How does Android market work with multiple devices? If I have for example both a phone and console, can I use same apps on both devices?
This stuff is extremely tempting, as Android seems to be the best emu platform besides Windows.

Wow, just realized this thing has HDMI video out. Bluetooth gamepad + this thingy = awesome.
