I have always been interested in this.  I started to
look around for dev kits and other information a while
back and I did come up with this:


This at least proves that serial comms are possible
with the Nintendo Gamboy Advanced.  There used to be a
really good dev environment called HAM, funny enough,
that allowed you to write code in C and even design
sprites and graphics for programs.  I never got that
far with it since I did'nt have a USB cable and
flashable cartrige to play with.

Still an option today.  The GBA can be had now on eBay
for as little at $30.
