I've got one, but you're too far away to play with it :)

They're really neat little devices, although I find that the battery life and range of compatible media formats are overhyped. The emulation stuff is great, though, although I just wish I could play Amiga Turrican II with sound at full speed - at my maximum clock speed of 240MHz, it's just too slow :(

I believe it is a bit overhyped.. Still I wouldn't mind one...

it's for real, no joke. and speaking of not taking my own advice, i still haven't gotten off the couch to go mow the lawn. instead, i've been playing on my laptop in between naps.

meanwhile...

this thing does look pretty slick. can you play dopewars on it?

Can somebody tell me how much such an device costs? I'd wouldn't mind one since I have to spend 1 hour a day in the train.

The website doesn't mentions any prices and I don't feel like selling my email address and names for just some price information.

Thank you in advance.

Whenever I try that I find that there is nothing to do outside, especially by yourself.

I would love to get one but I'm afraid that South African customs would charge 100% duty or something. :-(

well you need do wifi scanning with these little bad boys and have fun with blue tooth so surely these have to be better than a ds or a psp
