i have just finished porting of spectemu[1] to Qt and Freerunner. It's now in 
QtMoko package feed if you want to try it or you can compile from sources for 
your favourite distro.

The main work was port to Qt, possibility to use touchscreen and creating GUI 
for loading/saving snapshots and creating mouse/touchscreen bindings.

So the emulator can now do following:

- download my favourite games from internet
- load/save snapshot
- define custom on screen locations for spectrum keys
- rotate, qvga
- vibrate to notice if pressed border location of two keys
- use virtual keyboard for input (longer press requited for some games)
- autocorrect on screen key location during game playing 

Here are some useful tips:

- for QtMoko you will need v17 kernel to get decent speed [3] 
- if you want to disable sounds, delete /dev/dsp ;-)

I have also uploaded ugly video on youtube [4] and have a small homepage [5]
