Question Pocket PC's

I want to play games [homebrewed ones FYi] on an GBA and N64 emulators, on a pocket PC. The problem I see is that the keyboard is to small and the prosessor might not be fast enough.

generaly I just want to take them [the emulators/games] with me, so I thought a pocket PC would be the best route.

If this is in the wrong place, im sorry, but I just thought this is the best place.

For about the same price, you could get a laptop...

I am looking for more portablity [ie able to fit in my pocket].

I also can't spend over $400.

the flipstart by vulcan is kinda what im after, [http://www.flipstartpc.com/] in terms of size, but it looks pricey and idk if it can handle N64 games.

I guess a better choice would maybe be a PSP, but it dosent have enough buttons for N64 games...

any help?

There are a couple emulators on that website.
I dont think N64 emulators exist for any mobile platform, and I dont think there ever will be one. Too many controls, not enough power in the device.

$400 budget? Check this out. It's got a 4GB Hard drive, biggest in the competition.

Also, it's widescreen and costs $335.

is the flipstart released yet, cause I read an article on it from 2004, and it said it was coming out at the end of the year, but they must have lied.
