Trekkies will probably be scrambling to get one, and we can't blame them.

Don’t tell us that this hasn’t crossed you mind, sitting there with a robust smartphone like the OnePlus One, the Sony Xperia Z3 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and thinking, “Wouldn’t it be nice if I could play Final Fantasy X on my Android device?” For most hardcore gamers, this will have happened, at some point in time or another.
