Intriguing open-source handheld, the Gamepark GP2X, is to get both a
redesign and a smaller sibling called the XGP and XGP mini
respectively. These open-source gadgets which, like the GP2X, may not
become available to UK other than through importers, allow you to run
classic console emulator software and have generated quite a following
in the US and Asia as well as kicking up a bit of copyrights fuss.
full-size upgraded XGP is set to incorporate new Wi-Fi connectivity and
a DMB TV tuner, while the mini (which is pretty much the spitting image
of a Game Boy Micro) will boast an SD card slot. Hopefully, if
Gamepark’s luck proves better than Gizmondo’s, we may someday see an official European unveiling of these neat looking consoles.
