    snes is in Preware & is free, with option to donate.

    VBA is in the App Catalog for $4.99 I think.

    you will have to find your own ROMs for them. Don't ask around here because nobody is allowed to post where to find them according to P|C rules.

    the VBA emu does run GBA, GBC games not sure about DS

    PS...finding ROMs isn't too difficult if you know how to use Google.

    The SNES emu works great while not designed for the touchpad the extra real estate makes the games look better and the on screen controls feel alot more responsive. I been able to play alot more platformers, on the phone I could only play RPGs. There's no back button(gesture) so a work around to get back to the menu is to go in to card view and then back to full screen, and it goes right to the menu.

    Haven't been able to try or find VBA.

    I think a free version of VBA is in Preware as well. You wont find n64 or a DS emulator as of right now though.

    Edit: Oh wait, For the Touchpad, I dont know about VBA.

    I found this regarding the touchpad and VBA

    Once I have time to address these issues, I'll push the update to preware and app catalog as usual.

    On the rough Touchpad-TODO are things like upgrading the skins to make sense for the larger screen, and misc other improvements.

    Regarding *when* I don't expect to have time to sit down and do this for a few weeks, sorry!

    I want an NES emulator, SNES works, but NES would be nice and clean
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...
