    Why even bother to Google it? The first post clearly says: "PrBoom is a Doom engine thats been ported to the Pandora by Pickle. No info or readme is included."

    Anyways, I'm sure the Pandora is capable of much better emulation. I'd expect no less than Doom 3 on it. [​IMG]

    You know your name is right there on the left, you don't have to write it again each time?

    It is this: http://www.open-pandora.org/

    It's about the size of a DSL, just a smidge larger. For comparison, the NDSL has a CPU running at 67MHz, the NDSi/XL has a CPU clocked at 133MHz - the Pandora's default clock is 600MHz (and can be overclocked). It has dual analogue nubs, and a keyboard - it's not just a games machine, but can run a full linux install. The best part is that there is no extra hardware needed to run your own software on it.

    The downside is that it's pretty expensive. Mine cost me £200. If you're into emulation, you'll love it. If the touchscreen and keyboard etc don't do it for you, you'd likely be better off with a PSP, though the Pandora will wipe the floor with the PSP for emulating the higher consoles (N64 et al). It is currently being made by a few guys in a village hall in England, so production is slow. Had this machine had the backing of a large company (such as Nintendo, Sony etc) then it would likely be out a year or so ago - but then, if that were the case it likely wouldn't have been open and the hardware would be very, very much downgraded.
