    interesting idea.... but i'm not too sure about the analog stick on it..... looks like it's a tad too high that it's breached the "i'll break off if you slip me in your pocket" line. the PSP doesn't seem to be too bad, since it's analog stick(s) are pretty close to flush with the surface (at least i think they are.....)

    Yes its flashed and the fact it is open means all kinds of homebrew we have a PSP but need to downgrade the firmware in order to run homebrew and I dont want to void the warrentee maybe after the first year. But I like what I see in this open source hand held multimedia COOLIES!

    Never seen it before. Feature wise it seems to be good, but the only way you are going to play games on it is through emulators. I don't think any developer will jump ship and start supporting this.

    And it seems a bit too big to be a portable. :/

    I'd buy this just for the emulation alone. I think the portable isn't really geared towards the larger market; it's mainly supportive of homebrew developments. GamePark, on the other hand, are more likely to change the handheld market with the XGP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XGP)

    What would make this a killer device would be a 20 to 40 gig HD!
