My reaction is the same as many: "Wonderswan called, they want their control scheme back." :)

Doesn't say how much anywhere yet. If I were looking for something purely for gaming/web I might be interested. However, I suspect the price point is going to put it in the "Why not just spend the extra few bucks and get a Pandora?" range.

Basic idea is not bad. To allow both horizontal & vertical control's...

Don't make fun of the ( any other device ) competition, until you have a product in the customers hands ;)

Half bone, half wonderswan.

I am the bone of my wonderswan.
Plastic is my body, and electricity is my blood.
I have created over a thousand D-Pads.
Unknown to Death.
Nor known to Life.
Have withstood pain to create many control schemes.
Yet, those hands will never hold any controllers.
So, as I pray – “Unlimited D-Pad Works”.

At last, something to do with that third hand. I may actually understand this one, I bet the lower left dpad sends the same scancodes as the right dpad so it plays vertically as well as horizontally.

Wow, I always wonder how these (noname) devices pop up straight out of nowhere. ^_^ Maybe I followed the Pandora-Development just too long so this automaticly feels longer than an "surprise device" that just appears, I really want to know how long it has taken to make this Odroid thingy...and if they had to deal with the same problems like the Pandora Team had. :)

At least someone else outside of Asia is trying to do a gaming handheld. But that chipset is seriously wasted on this poor control scheme and Android, blegh :/

I'm pretty experienced with GIMP, it maybe took 5-10 minutes once I found the pictures.

... I mean, the background is from Fate Stay Night, where the meme originated.
You... didn't think I actually drew / painted that, did you?
