Default Just got my Pearl.

Please Login to Remove!

And I have a few questions about the application loader on the Desktop Manager. Can I put something on there...say like an emulator? Or even AIM or MSN or something like that?

Mostly though I would like to put an emulator on it so that I can play SNES games on my phone. It can be done with a PSP, and I'm just going to assume I can do it with my blackberry. Thanks for any help.

There are several different Instant Messaging applications that use both AOL and MSN for chatting. As for putting an emulator, I haven't found one that would work on a Blackberry and you wouldn't have enough memory on you phone to add one. Applications must be saved to the device memory and its only 64mb

I have a 2gb micro SD card though.

Again, no applications you add to your phone are going to be saved on the microSD card. Applications have to be installed directly into the device memory, which is a standard 64mb. With a 2gig card you can add just about as much video and music and ringtones etc as you like, but you can't use it for applications.

Well thats fine because the emulator is 1mb. Each game is even less. I just dont know how to go about adding it to my phone. Do I add the .exe file or do I install it to my computer then copy THAT file to my Pearl?

I think the only files that can be installed on the Pearl are .jar and .alx files. The pearl is not the same kind of device as a PSP so I seriously doubt if you can add it. The app loader won't even recognize the emulator file. If you somehow manage to make it work then more power to you

I know there has been talk of SNES emulators on here and I know one exists but works poorly.

Here are the Search Links:

NES emulator for the Blackberry?

Emulation (NES, Gen, SNES) on the Pearl?

There are many more just do a simple search.
