    I want to know if anyone here has heard of a WiFi-enabled Handheld device which supports emulators like NES, SNES, Genesis, etc.

    Does something that excellent actually exist?

    What are you referring to with Wifi, do you mean if it'll support Netplay?

    I think some of the emulators on the PSP had netplay (at least I know SNES did), but for any other handheld console it's pretty much unheard of. I also wouldn't doubt the Pandora having some emulators in the near future that will support netplay.

    Yeah, just the Pandora = expensive price for long wait before you actually receive it.

    I heard the Gemini A330 has some sort of wifi 2 player support. But it'll probably be local only.

    I think you might be SOL, son.

    Latency over the internet is not conducive to emulating old consoles (where there's nothing in the games to account for such latency as it did not exist back then). If you can find some stuff it won't play as well as local.
