"Based on Linux, the GP2X Wiz (nice name!) is a
completely open multi-functional handheld entertainment device. The
makers, GamePark Holding from Korea, say it’s different than
other shanzhai video game consoles in that it uses a completely
“open source” approach. Supposed to be released in late
2008 with a retail price of USD 179.99, there have been massive
delays and troubles with the company, but now, finally, it is
apparently ready to go.
"With games developed by companies, online groups and users
themselves and then shared via the network, the content portion of
the concept sounds pretty good. Just how good these new games and
emulations are to play on the Wiz remains to be seen."
