Nintendo DS on Android – Early Stages
XDA member shad0wboss pulled our attention regarding the upcoming Nintendo DS emulator for Android. No, it´s not here yet but the work seems pretty neat and started to test an alpha version of the emulator, which is ready for download. just make sure that you have a powerful enough device to use this. According to the original article, future versions will include Dynarec CPU simulation, GPU simualtion improvement for speed, and hardware render (eg, OpenGL ES), among others.
It is mentioned as well that a final stable version may not be ready before 2012 or more. This is definitely worth the wait.
