Default New handheld.

I've owned a GP2X handheld for a couple of years now, for those that don't know it its a linux based device that runs ports and emulations of older systems, as well as playing movies and music.
The Pandora is a new handheld that is in the later stages of development, it's design has been largly decided by the dev comunity built around the GP2X and GP32, it has a lot more grunt than the GP2X and will be able to emulate a PS1 at full speed and run games like Quake 3, all on a device about the same size as a nintendo DS. This should have tons of potential for retro gaming.
Check it out here: OpenPandora.org - Pandora The OMAP3 Powered Handheld Linux Console

For those of you whom like more classic games the nintendo DS can run emulators for all the older consoles. gensis, snes, master drive, nes, neo geo etc with minimal effort (and cash).
