Linux game console adds GPU, accelerometers

Jul 13, 2010, 13:38 (0 Talkback[s])

"GamePark Holdings (GPH) is readying a new version of its GP2X handheld game console running open source Linux games. The "GP2X Caanoo" is equipped with a 533MHz ARM9 CPU and 3D-ready GPU, a 3.5-inch display, Wi-Fi, and an accelerometer with a vibration motor.

"The heir to GPH's previous, Linux-based GP2X "Wiz" game console, which in turn replaced other models, starting with the original GP2X, the GP2X Caanoo will ship at the end of the month, says Maxconsole.net, which posted specs for the device.

"The Caanoo will be available in three versions, ranging from a basic $120 model up to one equipped with a Wi-Fi-dongle version, games and accessories for $150, says the site. Engadget, citing the Maxconsole.net site, simply says the device will ship August 15 for $150, and will be available via importers such as Play-Asia."
