"If you're familiar with the original GP2X and GP2X Wiz, the Linux-based handhelds produced by Korean techno-alchemists Game Park Holdings, you'll be acutely aware of just how close they came to greatness; both consoles suffered from compromises that prevented them from truly fulfilling their potential.

The D-pad and ingenious low-profile analogue nubs are great, and the resistive touchscreen and 43-button keypad further augment the device's input options."
