My favorite so far is Nesoid by a developer named yongzh is frankly the kind of stuff you dream of for a mobile platform. As emulators go it's smooth and skips very few frames, even on my G1's crappy proc. It has a simple interface, basically just file manager to pick and choose the ROM you want to play. It has Game Genie support, On screen controls, and control mapping for keyboard; it will even work with a blutooth controller if you have one.
It has two tiers of pricing. The "Light" version is just the basic emulator, and for $4.99 you can get the "Full" version that also adds Save States. If you play RPGs you should go ahead and splurge on the full version as what it doesn't emulate is battery backup, so ROM Save state is the only way to save your game. Nesoid isn't his only emulator either. There's a GBC, GBA, SNES and Genesis emulators as well.
This has breathed new life into my Android Phone. I'm not sure if I'll go back to it as a full time phone, but it may find it's way into by bag to hit up some Duck Tales when I'm bored at work; and when it comes to upgrading phones next time I think Android is back in the running.
