					Pandora Open-Source Netbook/Console Arrives in February
Pandora Open-Source Netbook/Console Arrives in February – OpenPandora project is an open source project
from Germany to make a handheld gaming console with open source design and the use of open source software.
Pandora has an ARM-based processor, Linux-based operating systems, and support for a wide range of gaming
consoles emulator with QWERTY keyboard and two analog game controllers.


It has been about four years since the project began, and only a handful unitPandora submitted so far due to a
number of constraints. But this time they have established a new company to produce the Pandora system and plans
to start mass production in February. You can order her a price of 375 Euros or about 4.3 million.


The specifications of the Pandora console haven’t really changed much since the project started, so a handheld
gaming device that was at the top of the curve regards specifications four years ago, is now looking a little more down
to earth. The Pandora does still pack in some great features though that are not available on other handheld gaming
consoles.


Including a full QWERTY keyboard, SDHC card slots, USB host capabilities, composite and S-video TV output. The
specification of the device include a 800 x 480 pixel display, powered by a 600 MHz TI OMAP 3550 processor,
supported by 110 MHz PowerVR SGX530 graphics, 512MB of RAM, and 512MB of storage. Watch the video below
to see the first prototypes in a production run in Germany, at Global Components.


Pandora could also serve as a mini computer that can run XFCE-based desktop Linux so we can also browse, even
create a program / ??write program code in this mini computing device and emulator support games Amiga, C64,
Atari, SNES, PSX, N64, etc.
