    Here are a few comments from the creator of the emulator...

    The image is scaled to the largest size possible while preserving the aspect ratio. There are black bars about half an inch wide on either side of the app.
    The primary development environment is Windows. I had to write an ARM instruction emulator to make it work, and it was still more than worth it. Development tools on all mobile platforms suck. The debuggers suck. Remote debugging sucks. The IDEs suck. They're all getting better, but still have a long ways to go. The port to Playbook involves removing the ARM emulator and letting the code run right on the metal.

    I think I'm going to need a 64 Gb Playbook to hold all the apps if this emulator gets developed.
