Lenovo i909 NES gaming phone with D-pad

So, you think that for mobile phone gaming to succeed, the phones should have a massive memory, graphics processing capabilities, big screens and other things that makes them popular on desktops?

But what about the tons of massively popular games that are already out there from years ago? They did not need and didn’t have anything of the above. In fact, your current average handset is much more powerful computer then a PC or gaming console you had 10-15 years ago.

So why not take a popular gaming system, like NES, put it’s software emulator into a phone, add some accessories like D-Pad for game control, an run with it. You already have a tons of ready to go cheap games and a nostalgic fan base to boot.

Well, that’s exactly what Lenovo is thinking with their new Lenovo i909 gaming phone.


Lenovo i909 is a good looking candybar handset with 2.4″ 262K color QVGA TFT display, 2 megapixel camera, microSD memory card slot, mp3 and video player, 111.4 × 50.2 × 15.5 mm dimensions and 112.8 gr weight. Overall, traditional, well designed, low to mid-end handset.

What makes Lenovo i909 special – is a software emulator that let’s you play NES games on it, and a cool D-pad controller that attaches to the phone and makes your gaming experience even more fun.

Looks like a nice idea, which, unfortunately, will be available only in China for now.
