GameBoy Advance Phone features Windows Mobile & PocketGBA emulator

GameBoy Advance Phone features Windows Mobile & PocketGBA emulator
The PlayStation Phone might seemingly usher in a new era in the mobile space as it brings forth the wonders and grace of gaming, but don't count out one surprising project that aims to back Nintendo.

Although it's not quite a finished product, the GameBoy Advance Phone is crafted from two devices, a GameBoy Advance obviously and an HTC Hermes, that manages to uniquely employ a variety of customizations to still give you that flattering look and feel of the beloved portable console. Naturally, you can blatantly tell that the shell of the GameBoy Advance is covering up the Windows Mobile powered HTC Hermes. Although its platform of choice is questionable, it manages to keep intact that original GameBoy Advance boot screen. Furthermore, there are a mix of custom notifications and ringtones from various Mario games to make the platform experience tolerable.

Constantly in landscape orientation, we also find the device packing the PocketGBA emulator that enables you to run your library of GameBoy Advance ROMs on it. Needless to say that there are still some work required in getting it up to par, such as the buttons on the GameBoy Advance not working, but we're certain that this project will eventually provide that real GameBoy Advance Phone that some only dream about.
