There is a brief update
on the status of the Linux-based Pandora handheld gaming system over at Neoseeker. The first 3000 units have sold out and the system is undergoing final regulatory testing. Eventually, it will sell for $330. "The Pandora is about the size of PSP (with dimensions of 83mm by 140mm). It has a 600MHz ARM Cortex CPU, and a 800x480 display capable of OpenGL and 16.7 million different colors. A small qwerty keyboard, a touchscreen, and dual analogue controls will help you game, or use your Pandora for non-gaming: with Wifi, Bluetooth and a USB 2.0 host you'll be able to do a great deal with this game system.
Did we mention the Pandora runs on Linux? It runs a variation of Angstrom-Linux and is designed to be able to handle emulators (such as for the C64, NES and other older systems) in addition to being able to run Linux games such as Quake 3, and browsers such as Firefox.
