    Hi,

    came across this site the other day.
    http://gp2x.co.uk/devx2.html

    previous incarnation had a distribution of 30,000 in UK and EU. tis a small
    customer base.

    they seem interested in hearing from folk with ideas

    Ah yes, the GP2x, I’m happy to say I’m a proud owner of one. It’s a pretty powerful handheld, dual arm processor 200MHz with pretty powerful 2d acceleration and multimedia capabilities to boot.
    So far there’s been a huge amount of homebrew support for it ( http://www.gp32x.com -good site), and with the previous GP32 warming things up, the GP2x is set to do a lot better.
    It’s also pretty easy to program for since SDL is supported, and you know if it works on your GP2x, it’s likely to work like that on all the others.
    It does have its glitches here and there, but generally you have a pretty powerful handheld that’s open and has a great homebrew scene supporting it (with some commercial games comming soon too) with a lot of potential for growth (only released last November) and leaves itself open for you to do whatever you like with it.

    hmmm… This intrigues me. How much did you pay for it and where did you get it? Does it use flash cards for memory? Any wireless on it?

    I got it for under 200 Euros from http://www.gp2x.co.uk although you could probably get a better deal from another distributer ( List here: http://wiki.gp2x.org/wiki/Where_to_Buy%3F ).
    It uses SD card for memory, things are downloaded either directly to the SD card, or through a usb cable and the GP2x when the card is in the GP2x.
    No wireless though.
    A full list of specs can be found here: http://wiki.gp2x.org/wiki/GP2X

    So far numerous things have been developed for it, emulators, homebrew games, interpreters for other games, useful utilites and so on. An archive for all this stuff can be found here: http://archive.gp2x.de/cgi-bin/cfiles.cgi?0,0,0,0,1
