If you’re after the capability of the RG350M but in a smaller form factor, you’re in luck. The RG280M is a slimmed down RG350M, sacrificing one analog stick, the HDMI port and larger screen in favour of a smaller more pocketable machine.
The RG350 is out in the wild and I’ve had my unit for a couple of weeks now. I reckon it’s the best open source handheld currently available for under $90. Read on for my review.
The Tieba Baidu forums have come alive with talk of a new machine from a new China manufacturer this week.
Yep you read it right, today my GCW Zero SE arrived. I could scarcely believe my eyes when my brother emailed to say I’d received a parcel from America, but it’s here. Believe it.
is not very favourable… Harsh but fair, I’m sure you’ll agree.
I reckon this handheld has a very bright future in front of it 🙂
Dingoonity board member and esteemed reviewer qbertaddict has posted a short video on youtube demoing a prototype currently known as the GCW. Firmware and potential model name are under wraps at this point, but the internal specs make for some mildly interesting reading. Qbertaddict divulges that the innards of this device are manufactured by Ingenic, …
Ingenic have been hard at work by the looks of it, their website shows details of a new SoC released on Jun 4th – the JZ4770.

Read on to see what they have to say about it:
In case you missed it, check here for a run down of what this machine is all about. The shorthand version is that DDU from the Dingoonity forums stumbled accross a Chinese firm working on their own Ingenic handheld, and now they are working together, with input from the Dingoonity community to create a machine …
Over on the Open Pandora forums is some talk revolving around a new games console made by a little known company called ‘Envizions’. Whilst they have apparently had a foray into the Open Source console gaming scene a few years ago, I have to admit I’d never heard of them until today. It appears that they are an American firm who’s aim is a release an Android based gaming system that plugs into your television (ie not a handheld). The founder and CEO of the company, Derrick Samuels, asks us for monetary support in the following video. Now, I don’t know about you but if I was CEO of the company I’d certainly try a little harder to stop calling it a Gaybox. Lol.
