Nintendo Cellphone Advance®

Now that you can get cellphones with high resolution LCD screens and 4way pointer buttons, why not make one that includes a Gameboy Advance processor and slot for games.

Games are automatically put on pause when the phone rings, and the phone includes a "save state" feature for continuing the game later on.

       Or how about a cell phone "game cartridge" for the gameboy?

       I was thinking the other way around: get Nintendo to manufacture a gameboy advance that had a phone as part of its functionality.

       I don't care how they do it... I'm just kinda tired of snake and dice...

       Home-bake-able. Buy one each of the two things I linked to, stir. Serves one.

       Seems to emulate only original Gameboy titles. (yawn) Boooring...

       Is this really half baked? The mobile phone manufacturers are all desperately trying to do exactly this.   

       Apparently one of them came very close to signing a deal for the GBA chip last year.

       It's half baked until I can buy one.. I did not know that anyone was pursuing the GBA technology, but then again "It only seems logical"....
