Gamepark's GP2X Wiz Handheld to Get Open Source Gaming App Store

,----[ Quote ]
| It's taken longer than expected, but Gamepark is on the brink of launching 
| their Linux-based GP2X Wiz handheld gaming system—and they are planning to 
| follow up with an open source app store this summer.

| Suit Larry.

Emulation station: GP2X F-200 gaming handheld reviewed

,----[ Quote ]
| A long-time gaming buddy of mine hipped me to this system a few months back,
| and I have to admit I was skeptical at first because he is prone to a bit of
| hyperbole when it comes to things he owns and I don't. But, after spending
| some quality, hands-on time with the GP2X F-200, I have to say that my
| friend's assessment was spot on: this is a quality handheld and well worth
| the $170 price tag for the emulation capabilities alone. In my mind, the
| multimedia functionality offered on the GP2X is just icing on the electronic
| cake.          


Could Pandora open up Linux games?

| A stealth-mode startup is readying a Linux-based handheld gaming device with
| WiFi, USB, and a 4.3-inch 800x480 touchscreen. The "Pandora," headquartered
| at OpenPandora.org for now, runs Linux on a next-generation ARM SoC with
| integrated OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics processor.  


GamePark Holdings' GP2X F-200 coming in October

,----[ Quote ]
| Where the new model does differ, however, is with the addition of a 320 x 240
| QVGA touchscreen (with stylus), and a complete redesign of the gamepad,
| moving away from the previous, mushroom-like protrusion to a more flush,
| PSP-esque controller.  


New Gp2x F-200, A GP2X with d-pad and Touchscreen!

| to F100 but with d-pad and touchscreen.
