    It has the potential to emulate every single console up to the PS1/N64. Link.

    Specs:

    # ARM® Cortex™-A8 600Mhz+ CPU running Linux
    # 430-MHz TMS320C64x+™ DSP Core
    # PowerVR SGX OpenGL 2.0 ES compliant 3D hardware
    # 800x480 4.3" 16.7 million colours touchscreen LCD
    # Wifi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth & High Speed USB 2.0 Host
    # Dual SDHC card slots & SVideo TV output
    # Dual Analogue and Digital gaming controls
    # 43 button QWERTY and numeric keypad
    # Around 10+ Hours battery life

    The CPU has successfully been overclocked to 800Mhz...exciting! I pre-ordered mine, should be arriving mid-late October.

    Only the screen is kind of small. I think smaller screens are better suited to older consoles like the snes and such.

    Hang on... this still isn't out yet?
    I think it was announced like September 2008, due for a March 2009 release or something initially...
    Then it was set back to maybe May, inbetween these times I pre-ordered.
    In I think it was September LAST YEAR I cancelled my order because I was sick of waiting.
    Do yourselves a favour and cancel your orders.
    You could get something from http://www.dynamism.com
    A Viliv S5 perhaps, far better specs, runs Windows OS' and actually exists.

    The resolution is still 800x600. Plenty for any modern handheld console.

    It's out already. The first batch shipped earlier this year. The second batch is scheduled to be shipped out this fall.

    The Viliv S5 is $650, the Pandora is $330. Doesn't take a genius to guess which one is better.

    Pandora is a lot slower...
    Theres pros and con of both... pandora is a actual portable game system with joysticks/d-pads, compared to a full on computer.

    Only thing I don't like about the viliv N5 other than the price is that it comes with Windows 7 Starter I wish you could put Professional on it.
