GP2X F-200 touch screen handheld announced

We've already mentioned the smart GP2X handheld, the only non-retro console that's an open platform and thus filled with tons of excellent freeware/homebrew games, apps and emulators. And now, as this very blog will start properly covering said platfrom, I thought I should probably post this interesting newsbit: the GP2X F-200 has just been announced.

The GP2X F-200, the new GP handheld, besides being sleeker than current GP2Xs, sporting a vastly improved interface, offering e-book & e-comic book support, will also feature a lovely touch screen. Just like a Pocket PC! Or -suspiciously- just like a DS. Have a look at the official preview here and expect the thing to be flooded with shoddy DS emulators.

  3. I doubt the machine is capable of DS emulation. Nonetheless, it looks like a good machine, although I doubt it to be a good investment for someone who already has a F100.

  4. I'd agree. A F100 without any touchscreens would be good enough for me. Actually, I might just grab one...
