    Hey,

    I want to know if the original gameboy has been cloned (not the advance or color), with modern technology (more modern chips), and better screen; and where to get them?

    I don't care if it reads Nintendo cartridges or not; as long as it plays back .GB files.
    I also have a bunch of cartridges that if it does play them back, I'd be happy as well.

    I want a bit of the original feel of a gameboy (a non-backlit screen, no color), and the good battery life (or better battery life than the original gameboy).

    Thanks!

    Your best bet is to just get an original Gameboy and a flashcart. The cart has a micro sd slot for the loading of games and you can just pop the cart out and play your normal game cartridges as well.
    Here is a link for the Gameboy Everdrive: http://www.stoneagegamer.com/everdrive-gb.html

    They cost about $77

    I've looked around for a bit, and the SP clones have been removed from sales sites.
    I believe Nintendo threatened sites selling SP clones, like Dealextreme, and others.
    They also sued the phugg out of those companies creating clones.

    Occasionally, a gameboy color clone is still on the market; as the design is older, and perhaps Nintendo isn't aware of them yet, or they might have a lawsuit on those companies already.

    But I really thought, that with today's technology (<20nm chips), there must have been a Gameboy clone with better battery life, and if must, an E-ink screen; which could last like for weeks on a battery charge! (especially with the modern lithium cellphone batteries)...

    I hope the Chinese would be able to make a gameboy clone some day with e-ink screen!
