    If you have a DSi, then no because you don't have a slot2. If you have a regular DS, you can if you have a slot2 card, such as the 3in1, though I'd recommend a full-featured slot2 card over a 3in1 any day.

    You can NEVER play GBA games with only a slot1 card.

    Most likely after the DSi has been hacked someone will come up with a GBA emulator for the AK2i, but don't expect it anytime soon, until then Rayder's response is correct

    they processor has also increased

    I don't think the DSi will be able to emulate GBA very well. My iPhone seems to only just emulate GBA, and if you compare the specs of the DSi and iPhone... Well, you'll see for yourself what I mean.

    Now compare the size of your PC with the size of a DSi or an iPhone. Oh, shit.

    And don't forget that even the crappiest of PCs are more powerful than a DSi/iPhone. Unless you got a really, really cheap peice of crap PC from 11 years ago.

    Biggest problem isn't size, speed of processor or RAM size, it's the hardware architecture. To translate instructions made to ARM processor to other architecture requires some more processing power.
