Panasonic Jungle, a Portable Linux-based MMORPG Console

"If you love playing MMORPG and other online games, then you may like the Panasonic Jungle. This portable game console is probably the first handheld device that runs online games and MMORPGs exclusively. The Panasonic Jungle comes after 15 years since the release of the already extinct 3DO game console. This is like a huge gamble by Panasonic since the market is now saturated with variety of portable gaming devices like the Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, and the Apple iPhone/iPod Touch.

"Although details of the Panasonic Jungle's specifications and features are not yet released, several credible sources have told us that it will run Linux. The device is said to be cloud-centric, and aside from online gaming, it may include features for video content creation. The only game that is said to be onboard at the moment is Battlestar Galactica Online."
