Upcoming PockEmul on Android
Remy, the developer of the wonderful emulator for pocket computers has
just posted an update on the future Android version design specifically
for the touch screen. While there has been a port for the emulator for
Android, it has not been the best of interfaces (in my view). So a version
specifically for Android would be nice. Please see his post:

PockEmul

It appears that he is planning on releasing two versions: a limited
version that would be free and a full version that would cost.

I have been using his emulator for many years and do not have any
problem with paying for a full version on Android. Especially if it's
optimized for the platform.

Meanwhile, the full version 1.4.3 is available for free to run on windows:

PockEmul 1.4.3

If you like pocket PC's but can't afford to own them, then this is a fantastic
way to experience them. He has included a lot of the favorites from Sharp,
Radio Shack, Canon, Casio , HP. Some are still a Work In Progress.
Many of the accessories to the computers are emulated including
memory modules, rom modules, printers, plotters, interfaces, etc.

.
Same here, thanks a lot for the news.

I've used PockEmul/Win extensively. It never had a decent UI and gave a lot of problems and crashes (old version, running on Win XP) but nevertheless I used it a lot and was very hepful to develop and test programs and perform calculations in a variety of pocket computers without having to use the physical units in my collection, the vast majority of which are preserved in sealed PVC bags out of light and moisture.

And yes, please keep us informed. I'm sure to buy the Android version if the reviews are good enough. Let's hope its author does care for the people buying his product and fixes bug reports or at least answers us, not like some other developer of Android emulators that never fixes anything and further completely ignores any attempts at communication

Thanks again and regards.
V.
