My suggestion is to take a look at the games available and choose the platform with the games you like.
If you're looking long term then definitely go with Android. I've watched the both the number and quality of games go up exponentially over the last year. When I got my Desire we didn't even have Angry Birds. Now we have Minecraft. MINECRAFT. Its at the point now where you can't really say that iOS has any advantage at all, since you'd have to do an indepth study just to find out the differences.
Yep, I agree. Although I never see the logic in tethering a controller to a cell phone...just seems like it defeats the purpose if you have to carry a controller around with you to play games. And it also looks silly.
N64oid is available in the SlideMe market and it can play all the N64 roms. It has pretty good onscreen controls (takes some getting used to) and plays games at a reasonable framerate on my Bionic (OOT plays at about 25 fps I'd say, which is extremely playable). I'd love to see it play on the SGSII, with it's Mali GPU, the experience would only get better.
While N64oid is like $4 or $5, he supports a ton of other emulators. I'm sure once the next-gen SoC's come out with 2.5GHz dual cores and quad-core processors, we'll see a Gamecube emulator from him.
