    Wow!

    When I saw pics I thought it was huge! Like a combo between the DSi XL and Phat... but bigger. NOw from what Ive seen its about the same size as teh Phat.

    I likey! I just hope they will be able to do NDS emulation on it (Yea yea I know if id read the specs its not possible maybe but someone will ask eventually... and if its the first post people will see it sooner! [​IMG])

    I'd get one, but if that Turkish website was correct, they're $330! No thanks, I'll get a netbook at that price.

    Flip it on the side and you get one touch screen that can be split in 2 to make emulate a DS

    It's great to see an ancient concept materialise.

    It sucks seeing the price.

    Yes, or at least I would've thought so.

    And it looks good, although I may still not get one. Not right now, anyway. [​IMG]

    The Pandora - Previously impressive hardware which at the time was thought to be sold at a great price, but due to massive "delays" it is now nothing more than a decent enough device with a rather high price tag.

    m'yes, now back on topic [​IMG]

    Seriously, $330 for something which is already outdated?

    I was electrified by the thought of having good Amiga emulation on the go, but with that price tag... No thanks [​IMG]

    If they were $199... well, that'd been different.

    I agree that it has outdated specs, but its still a unique machine in that it has real controls and a keyboard. And apart from that, it is truly an open device. I'm not sure if I would get one though given the fact that it comes from a small group of people and that if anything happens (like dropping it), there's not much I can do. I may get a PSP instead some time.

    Wow, last time I saw something of Pandora, it still was (or at least looked to be) as big as a laptop! I never thought it would be about the size of a DSi. I would get one, if only production didn't take that long and they didn't cost as much. I can probably do everything it does, and more, with my netbook that I got cheaper than that [​IMG]
