I used to think the Nintendo DS is cool but after seeing the functionalities of the linux running GP2X well I am totally converted. It can not only play games but also serve as your movie and music player, photo viewer and Ebook reader. What’s more it can be connected to the TV like a PSP console. So you can view those DivX movies downloaded from the net or play those emulated classics (which seems to be the current craze in our college) on your gigantic flat screen TV in the living room.
But why stop there, you probably might be wondering if it is fast. Well of course! You see I have a palm pilot and know fully well how annoying it is to wait for my movie to be re-encoded so I can view them on my palm. However with GP2X all I have to do is put them on the SD card and just plug and play. No worries and no wait. Wahhh! I want one! I want one! Read that Santa? I want one!
