Just wrote them an e-mail to make it in Real. We are about to finish Mame for jailbroken iPads, so that would take off the legal problems for them.

Too bad there is no Mame for iPad, and BT only supports 4 simultaneous keypresses. An Android tab would have been better for this with easier app install and USB input device support.

Damn, it's very difficult to resist to the iPad attraction after that video, but I will be strong, and keep my money for another brand, I have lost all of my trust with Apple since my maaaaaaany iPhone problems.

I'm waiting for the EEEpad Transformer 3G. Guess there's MAME for that too, and at least it comes with a keyboard.

I Jailbreaked my iPad and now 2500 Arcade-Games are available ..
Yes .. it communicates via Bluetooth but it works perfect ..
I tested several things with the "iMame4all" App coder and now you can use the result of his work and my tests.

I like those useless things ..

You all can have a look at the Eurocade ..

How many simultaneous keys does it handle? Apple's normal BT keyboard only does 4.
