    There are a handful of iPhone games I wish I could play. Problem is I am not going to and probably never will purchase an iPhone. So my question is iPhone emulation on the DS possible? I would think it definitely could be done with the touch screen and all. Anyone know if this has ever been worked on or if it is even at all possible?

    i would say there is no chance.

    Firstly, any games using an accelerometer (tilt sensor) are out

    Also, any games using multitouch are out (ds doesnt have capacitive screen)

    and therefore thats already a large amount of apps ruled out, without even beginning to think whether its possible

    Also, Have you seen the graphics on the iphone compared to the ds?

    I would just say, buy an iTouch if you cant afford an iphone.
    I dont have either, but i rate an iTouch better than ds now, even for gaming.

    iPhone has 620MHz processor (although underclocked to 412MHZ accroding to wikipedia) and the DS has 67MHz processor, so not gonna happen. Ever.
