PDAs and Emulators

To any PDA (Pocket PC) owners/users out there: have you tried running any emulators (MAME, NES, etc.) on it? If so, how do they play, and which ones work best?

I'm looking into getting a PDA, and the possibility of playing emulated games is one of the possible selling points for me.

I have a Toshiba e740 and due to the button layout I figured it would be perfect for NES emulation. Turns out the directional pad wasn't precise or responsive enough for games and I had to disable sound in order to get the games to play smoothly. Quite a disappointment for me.

Yeah I have an x3i and use pocketnes. It works great. For some games I need to change the button config around but for the most part it is good. However, the games can be hard to get ahold of some times.

Legally, yes they're hard to get. Illegally, well, you can get them anywhere but the web.
