Oh man, I really wish that was me testing the sucker out. In case you missed it when they first put out renders, the Pandora is a powerhouse open-source handheld in the spirit of the GP32 and GP2X (which I have). It’s got dual analog sticks, an 800×480 screen, full QWERTY, wi-fi, and a bunch of other stuff. It basically looks like the definitive homebrew and emulation device, and it looks to be about the size of a DS. As soon as I know I’m not intruding (I picture it as a very personal operation), I’m going to see if we can get one to test out, although I think I can say with conviction that this thing is going kick ass.
