We'll see this article...and then we'll never see it again until, of course, it's pulled from the market in a couple of years.

What an epic waste of money.

Texas instrument makes the OMAP CPU used in many smartphones. They also makes great high-end audio components under their Burr Brown brand. Texas is a great component maker ... they don't only manfacture calculators ... just take a look at their website before posting such useless comment.

When you see a RaspberryPi for $35 (http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/pcs...ream-machine/1) you have to wonder what's causing this to cost 370!

Sure, screen, battery, case - but really? ZTE can put together a fully fledged phone with similar specs for 100 and an Xbox controller costs what? 18?

Does volume and scale really *make* 250's worth of difference?

I can't wait to see the modders make something better than this using the RaspberryPi for 100-200.

What kind of emulators does it support? The only real experience with emulators I have is WINUAE and SCUMMVM.

It does seem very pricey though.

I was interested in it ... but a few years ago ! With Rpi around the corner and smartphone with full keybord I really do not see any interest in this Pandora anymore, especially considering the price. Too bad, because I really was a FAN.

Yes, volume and scale can really make 250's worth of difference.
The BIG manufacturers literally pay peanuts for their components compared to what you pay buying from retailers or smaller wholesale dealers. Simply because they buy thousands of them at a time, and might by a thousand other components in the same volumes from the same supplyer.

Agreed ! I saw that with Burr Brown component that can trully cost an arm when bought in small quantity.

I don't follow smart phones and such. It has been ages since I'd heard of them so I posted. So sorry for posting such a 'useless comment'. Shame you had to spoil what was otherwise an informative post with that remark.

An apology was the last thing I expected. A nice surprise! Thank you mate.

Perhaps I was being overly touchy. Not slept well in days. Thanks for being a decent sort. Do love this community!

Guille, Fizzban, I hate to have to be the one to break this to you, but this here is the internets. Now, either get into a ridiculous, juvenile flamewar (bonus points for bad spelling, bad grammar, and Nazi references) or GTFO. Gotdamn hippies, working out your differences and coming to an understanding >



I got a chubby when I saw this. Then I saw the pricetag. Now it's like my poor l'il guy is trying to crawl back home. Like Stash said, sure, until RPi came along. I could likely scavenge parts and hack something close enough together for $100. And have an assload more fun doing it, too...maybe not the gaming parts (I'm no Ben Heck, after all), but the KB at least, and I have no desire for a portable gaming machine anyway. (No use for one, really, now that I have a car - would have been kind of kickass when I used to ride the bus 2-3 hours a day, though.)
