Question Kindle emulator

Are there any Kindle emulators for PC? By emulator I mean like DeSmuME or no$gba but for Kindle 1, 2, 3, DX, and/or DXG.

Are there any third party hacks that'll let Kindle act as an emulator for something like NES, Game&Watch etc?

The Kindle Previewer can emulate various Kindle device displays, but the not the complete hardware (keyboard etc.).

There's kdk-emulator: http://code.google.com/p/kdk-emulator/

I'm not sure how to configure and run it, though.

Does anyone here know?

This question belongs in the developers' forum. Moved.

Several emulators are available for the Kindles.
Some are specific to certain models of the Kindle only.

You will have to read about each of them to see if they support the features you are interested in.

Note:
DeSmuME presumes that a touch screen is available, and none of the devices you list have a touch screen.
Which means you are looking at some coding effort to port it to a Kindle.

no$gba, NES, Game&Watch: You will find a gnuboy port on this forum for some Kindle models.

etc: These may require some coding.
