    Well I have some money left from my graduation. I was planning on spending it elsewhere, but then I remembered how much I actually want one of these. I read the fist impressions review, and honestly I love the way its built, and laid out. Anyways, questions:

    1) First pre-orders have been sent out. At the moment what are my chances of getting one in the next shipment if I pre-order in a few days.

    2) What apps have been released for it, and how do they play?

    3) I have no doubt that this will be worth the purchase. Mostly because I am a sucker for handhelds that emulate things, etc. But atm is there any handheld machine that comes close to the potential/out of the box abilities that the Pandora can do. Or is there one that has been slated to be developed.


    For those that don't know I bought a PSP, and it can do a lot but it isn't out of the box capabilities.

    I'd actually like to know this as well, because I'm kind of debating between getting an iPhone 3GS or a Pandora for my birthday on the 6th. I know the Pandora won't be available instantly, since it's on another pre-order.

    As for apps, apparently most of the emulators run smoothly, and there are quite a few game ports...You can look at all available apps here: http://apps.open-pandora.org/apps/main.shtml

    I honestly like it because it is shaped similar to the DS, and the fact that it's on par with a traditional performing video game console with features similar to a netbook.

    Yeah, I like the design as well. I really just want a great handheld gaming system with N64 support and other emulator support. I was thinking about a Dingoo A320 (I don't like the look of the A330, and I don't need the wireless controller), but the emulators are pretty basic.

    GBA Emu in the A320 is a half assed piece of shit, and almost every other native emu is the same. Dingux is where it truly shines!

    For those of you that care, I here is an update on availability.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    They also directly dodged my question about the number of first batch Pandora systems left.
