    retro Pandora - The Preorders Are Open Today



    Finally months after the official announcement 3000 lucky people can now preorder the Worlds fastest handheld console that boasts a processor capable of up to 900MHZ, PowerVR 3D Graphics, a large 800x480 LCD Touchscreen, Wifi, Bluetooth, USB, Dual SD Card Slots, TV Out, Dual analogue and digital controls, a clamshell DS Lite style shape and a 43 button mini keyboard.

    The Console already boasts an amazing amount of ready to be released software such as Ubuntu and many full speed emulators for systems such as Snes, Amiga, Megadrive and many more that are not publically announced yet.

    The price of the Pandora is $329.99 / 199.99 (Inc VAT) / E249.99 (Inc VAT) and is backed up by the very strong GP32X Community a community that has the most concentrated amount of amateur coders that no other Homebrew scene can boast and yes more developers than even the mighty PSP and DS Scenes.

    The Console is as powerful as original Xbox and on a par with the Nintedo Wii and thats very impressive, add to that the keyboard, bluetooth, dual analogues and you have what is a Pocket PC/Handheld Console Hybrid with software that will amaze and if your an emulation fan then this console will do everything the PSP can and more, we should expect full speed MAME, PSX, GBA, Snes, Megadrive, Master System, Colecovision, Commodore 64, PC Engine and yeah the list goes on, what should also be very doable to full speed should be Nintendo64, Sega 32X, Sega CD, 3D0, the coder of NullDC an excellent Dreamcast emulator for Windows has publically stated that he his looking to port to Pandora.

    In short this will be so very much more than any handheld before and one the homebrew community through all the scenes will be interested to see.

    Those interested in Preordering can do so at 2PM today GMT time (Sept30th for those in different parts of the world), only the first 3000 will get on the first batch of this exciting console.

    Those Interested should visit OpenPandora.Org the home of the Pandora Console

    I hope it does well, but I'm going to wait until it develops more and they fix the flawed shift caps lock button.

    I still have a hard time believing they actually exist. that being said, if they do, I'd be very tempted to pick one up

    I will not purchase this system until it is reviewed by people who own it, but will certainly keep my eye on this little piece of hardware. I will be looking forward to the second batch.

    Why?

    There's plenty of devkits around, and homebrew apps have already been made. What's the point in making devkits/coding for a system that doesn't exist?

    The system exist lol I don't even understand why someone would question that. There are enough youtube videos of the console, interviews with the guy behind it (video interviews) And many trusted coders have the prototype preproduction unit. Such as Zoddt or something like that =P

    I won't be going on the first batch though, nothing against the hardware it's just I want to see more homebrew on this console first. My main interest in N64 emulation, so I won't really touch this thing before that =/ My PSP can do most of the things that this system will probably have the ability to do for some time. So waiting is no big deal.
