Nintendo GameBoy a valid discussion topic now?

Nintendo seems to base their handhelds on their previous generation
handhelds. The original GameBoy was, mostly, a NES with a black-and-white
screen. The GBA is, mostly, a SNES.

Gameboys are great fun for hacking on. There are open source development
kits and languages out, the hardware is *very* well documented, and there
are tons of third party expansion and adapter cards.

There's the GameBoy Robot:

and the GameBoy Music club:

and a PDA for your GameBoy Color, including, ahem, an "Advanced Phone
Dialer" app :)
