    Looks pretty ugly.

    Also I doubt the thing could get 9 hours of battery life during gaming.

    If that is real, I hope whoever designed it didn't get paid.

    According to those specs, it would be a VERY cool system for homebrew emulators if that were possible. Funny though, a serious lack of buttons for anything but Nintendo. We'll see if this turns out to be real. I guess if so, they intend it for E3. If it's announced at E3, it could actually be trouble for the competitors!

    notice the "4inch (diagonal) widescreen multitouch display"? As everyone predicted other companies are going to copy nintendo, yet at the same time manage to do it better. Just as Microsoft ( and others) copied miis, rumble, sholder buttons, analogue yet managed to make it better. Just watch, soon we will also have a motion based controller for xbox, which is much more accurate.

    SIM card tray?
    Built in microphone?

    If this is real, guess it could be used as a phone too, huh. That would be pretty cool.

    That'd be really cool if it was released, Great specs. I agree the Dpad looks Playstation-ey. But didn't a lot of people complain about the Xbox 360's D-Pad. Could be a design change. Anyway I wont believe this unless its announced at E3 or in the future. Still great specs. I think the screen is kinda small though

    its already in development according to rumors [​IMG]

    Zune-X looks more like an iPhone , games are going to be downloadable if the specs are true

    i agree with the playstation D-pad look,
    i hope it has an anologue stick, its a pain to use D-pad

    hmm screen size smaller than psp but unit looks samesize as psp, fail. Video playback, specs and storage is a win. If this has tv out, i will mostly buy for homebrew and video playback.

    Looks good but the gaming focus would be on the fail "Hardcore" titles. It would be a good buy if homebrew computability was good and/or it's region free.

    It's too good to be real. Companies never make design decisions as good as that, there always has to be a drawback aha.
    If it is real though, I want one now.

    Looks fake. Too big and ugly, kinda like Atari Lynx's lil brother. That "OnLive ready" feature is what really made me think its fake. OnLive is going to be a competitor service so how is it compatible???

    If it works with basically all xbox live arcades games (it would be cool, wouldnt it?) and the price isnt bad, i might actually consider buying it... since i dont have a xbox 360 and i only wanted it for the arcade.



    WAIT TOUCHSCREEN? THIS AGAIN? DS works fine with the touch screen now this i dont think it could work.

    with 2 screens its great having touch in one and display in another, now only one touchscreen for everything.. meeeh :S

    Am I the only person who doesn't think this looks ugly? Admittedly quite retro, but I still think it looks nice.
