Cortex A8 gaming handheld runs Linux

“The Pandora is equipped with 128MB of DDR SDRAM and 256MB of internal flash, and sports a 4.3-inch display offering a 5:3 aspect ratio. The device includes 802.11g WiFi, a USB host, dual SDHC slots, and a serial port. It includes a QWERTY keyboard and microphone, as well as TV-out, A/V-out, and headphone/microphone input. Game controls include a directional pad and two analog nubs, with rubber grip and click function.
Specs for the final version of the clamshell-format Pandora, which measures only 5.5 x 3.3 x 1.1 inches (140 x 84 x 28mm), or slightly smaller than Nintendo’s DS Lite, appear to be almost identical to those published in March when the open source Pandora was announced. New information on the Pandora includes the addition of Bluetooth, and a claim for ten-hour battery life. The ship date may have slipped by six months, but the expected price has risen only $10, to $330.” Read more here:

However, when exposed to direct sunlight, unlike its Nokia rival, the screen was useless. ” Read more here:
