Hi, I was just letting u all know that there's this (somewhat) new portable gaming handheld/mini computer available. It's only a little bigger than the NDS, and runs a full Linux OS. Here's some of the specs:
- 10 Hours Battery Life, (sometimes a little less)
- 1 GHZ Processor (not sure what kind, though)
- Full Qwerty Keyboard
- Completely Open Source
- Plays Hardcore Games like Quake 3 Easily.
- Dual Analog Sticks

There's also an official website: http://openpandora.org/
And a Wiki Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_%28console%29

Here's a couple of videos of it in action:

Here's Where I bought mine (Note: Not always available):

If you're curious, here's some reviews of it:

The Pandora Apps/Games Page

- http://repo.openpandora.org/

Finally, this Epic Console can be yours truly for ten easy payments of $1999.95... Just Kidding. The Suggested retail price is $499.95. Yes, It's Expensive. But let's be honest:
- Would we get the same amount of pure awesomeness from the Extremely locked down PS Vita? No.
- Could we get even half the amount of battery life the Pandora offers from the PS Vita? No.
- Should you destroy every PS Vita In a three mile radius of your home? Yes. (But you didn't hear that from me)

Will/is this the single-most greatest handheld you will own in your entire Lifetime? YOU be the judge.

I feel the Open Pandora is overpriced and (imo) has a very poor range of games although it is open source.

My favourite portable games console has to be the xperia play:


Simply because it has a very wide range of games thanks to the android os. It has 3g to allow connection to the internet and online play nearly anywhere.
You can talk through skype while playing online as well and additionally, android is a great platform to develop for.

P.S. did i mention it has flash and html 5 Very Happy

Well, yeah it IS a phone afterall. The only difference is the psp like buttons since it has a touch screen, you can make calls, IM, and more from the on screen keyboard. It's pretty sweet.
