    This is pretty epic... Android's first gaming device is going to be "Gizmondo". It actually came out in 2005 but the company collapsed because they were all mafia people running it LOL. LITERALLY!

    Now all the bad guys are in jail and the founder is apparently relaunching it. This is definitely something to watch. Sony should have come out with a Playstation Phone a long time ago so... maybe this thing is actually going to fill a need.

    I call meh on this one, coz i'll be getting the HTC Dream anyways (how soon depends on the release price) and the only thing stopping u playing all the games that u can on the gizmondo on the Dream is the differences in the CPU and ram ( the gizmondo likely to have mush more of both). But i find that i'd not be interested in anything above snes level (possibly N64).

    I wouldn't pay much attention. The first Gizmondo was a scam to steal investor's money. It'd be silly to think the second is any different.

    Haha, I remember that vividly. The Ferrari crash on T.V.. I sure hope this is not a scam. It would be a really nice push for the open source community.
