    The Pandora will be slightly bigger than a DS Lite, but still smaller than a DS Phat.

    They've had problems with their bank and around that time they decided that adding 256MB RAM and 512MB internal storage would be a good investment. They will start shipping them sometime soon though if no other delays appear so hopefully I'll have mine soon.

    Their screen manufacturer also has some problems producing the LCDs, but that shouldn't affect me seeing as I ordered mine as soon as they were available.

    Yeah, they had some banking issues with the memory (but the good thing is that now the Pandora sports 256MB of Ram and 512MB of Nand [​IMG]) and the LCD manufacturer has problem in manifacturing enough for all the Pandoras.

    Looks awesome though. If it'll be well supported and reliable, I might end up getting one [​IMG]

    It really doesn't look like there's much support for this console, so don't expect great emulators anytime soon.
    Only time will tell, except this thing has been delayed for too long. [​IMG]

    Really? Their forums seem really lively, and the GP2X had loads of support.

    Ive seen some really promising videos of stuff running on the hardware as well.
