Yeah there is a couple of mames for android that are based on different versions, one based on mame4all and the other based on a fairly recent version of the pc build for higher spec android phones, tablets, both are good and run different roms of course, can't wait until mobile CPUs get fast enough to run later games.

Just saw something new that is going to be released to turn any TV into an Google Smart TV.  It is  similar to this but connects through the HDMI on any TV and comes with a remote.  It is on Kickstarter as a project.

I'll probably wait until a dual core version comes out, I was gonna use for it emulation upstairs, but I have a Raspberry Pi and Xperia Play overclocked to 1.2ghz so it's roughly the same and will wait until the next big speed upgrade, looks nice and compact though.
