    just found this on kotaku. first look at the specs:
    that's right. emulation of NES/GB/GBC.

    imagine if the cloverfield monster attacks your city and there's no more power supply. fear not, because now you can still play your NES games through solar power, while running away from the monster. AWESOME!!
    you can order it from here for around USD$120.

    Looks pretty awesome! Though I'd prefer something with a little more horsepower so it could play GBA, Snes etc.

    Solar power, what a gimmick. It's possible to emulate all those machines on that Nokia there, except the Nokia can play GBA as well. The phone probably costs more than 120 USD though.

    I don't think you can fit XP onto 2GB of memory...

    Plus playing games not developed for the mobile mostly suck without d-pad and buttons. Can't say the handheld interests me that much as I can get a solar thing for DS/PSP/GP2X etc and do a damn sight more with those.

    I've seen another handheld that also emulates GBA.

    I tried one on my N70 and it worked great. the sound was a bit stuttering, but great speed. It's a shame that I can't stand that cut-off screen.

    Dunno about the name, but that means that you can connect it on almost every Win system.

    I think he means storage space.

    You can easly fit XP on 2 gigs. Windows is bloated with un needed drivers and other junk. But I do not see what XP has to do with this product.

    vBag works fine on mine. Would be better if you could map the media keys though, so you could hold it like a game pad.

    Crappy. Theres better stuff cheaper without a solar panel, which is just a gimmick.

    Sorry, I can't take this thing seriously when it has a solar panel, lol. I'm not going to sit out there holding it out into the sunlight just because the batteries died.

    Meh, it's not that great.

    And about XP, it will fit fine on 2GB of space without needing to trim it down, it will only take a little more than 1GB, but after running windows update it'll take up a lot more.

    A max of 4GB of memory in today's age? No thanks, lol. You'd hardly be able to fit anything on there.
