Android phone and emulators with HDMI TV

Hi from a newbie.

I have the dual core LG 3D Android phone, lately I've been looking at emulators and having fun.

Together with the emulators I'm connecting the phone to my 42" TV and HiFi system to get a better experience. To add to the feel I'm also using the "Zeemote" blue tooth joystick.

I made a short youtube vid of it here.........

Thought it might be of interest?

Pete

Would rather just connect my laptop to my tv or turn on my real 1200,

However i must admit that is kinda cool, having had a mobile phone since 95 its amazing to see how much the technology has advanced over the years...............Amiga on a phone...............Connected to a 42" tv = awesome.

I think 26'' display is too big for Amiga games and on 42'' they will look like Gameboy Color titles. Same with demos - all vector objects will have jagged lines.

Only if you sit close to the display like you have to with a small display. With the remote I can sit 3mtrs away, so it's fine.
