Hackers Make a Gameboy Advance Phone (VIDEO)

Some people aren’t willing to wait for Sony Ericcson to get around to announcing its Playstation Phone.

Windows Phone Hacker is showing off an old-ass phone they created out of a Gameboy Advance and an HTC Hermes Windows Pocket PC. They also made a video of the thing in action, which you can watch below.

What’s in the video is still just a prototype, but it does actually seem to work, although you can’t use the buttons on the Gameboy housing yet. It includes an animated GIF running at startup that copies that of the Gameboy Advance and uses a PocketGBA emulator that lets it actually play games. In an extra nice touch, it also uses Nintendo music and sound effects for its notifications.

I wonder how many of these Nintendo could sell if they were willing to actually make them.
