As an alternative, I think the best solution right now is to get a WinCE
machine and run an emulator.  I recently saw a post indicating someone had
created an emulator which runs most of the roms. (not sure where I saw
that though)

There is at least one of these such devices.  Sean Kelly took one apart
and indicated that there is only one chip.  Unknown what it is.  It could
be anything from a single chip which implements all the
components(including roms), so some sort of hardware emulation.  As it is
a current commercial product, I doubt that the designers will release any
