Hello,

I currently have the Nokia N900. The phone is fantastic (it is really a pc:) ) but there is hardly any development going on it. Pity about futher maemo dev from nokia. Now I am thinking of getting the Xolo X900 but I had a question regarding emulators.

I use emulators a lot on my phone.

Does the X900 support the emulators available on the app store - specifically the Retro Arch?

Thanks in advance.

If you're interested in development however you're out of luck with the OSD, we have root but no unlocked bootloader and in all likelihood never will.

Great to know that Retro Arch is supported :)
Can you tell me the performance about the emulators in RetroArch.
I expect that PSOne and N64 wont be good but what about SNES and GBA?

I used to have an Xperia U and it is worse for sure. The screen on the Xperia U does have better colours though. It is quite chunky though too

Thanks everyone for your replies. I have placed order online. I got it for 11.9K. :D
Is there any case for this phone like the Poetic Slimline for Nexus 7?

Got the phone last week. The display and performance at this price point is incredible. The call quality is also excellent.
Very happy with the purchase :)
