About The GP2X
OK. We will try to keep it simple.|
To sum up the GP2X:|
It can play games. It can play your Movies. It can play your music. It
can view photos. It can read Ebooks. It runs on just 2 AA batteries -
And it can do all this in the palm of your hand or on your TV screen.
Yes that's right, this handheld can connect to the TV, console style.
Watch your DivX movies on the TV. Play emulated classics on the TV. Try
big screen Quake. Or just play them all on the GP2X's large 320*240
backlit screen. You get the best of both worlds.
It runs the free Linux operating system. This means a whole world of
Games, Utilities and Emulators are at your disposal. Quake, Doom, SNES,
Megadrive, MAME, Media players and Applications to name just a few.
It's powerful - Two 200mhz CPU's with 64meg of RAM, custom graphics
hardware and decoding chips. Takes SD cards and has 64M of NAND memory.
Plenty to play with. One of the most powerful and advanced handhelds
That means it can play movies without any re-encoding. Just put them
onto an SD card. Any size. Any resolution. No messing about. The GP2X
scaling chip will resize to fit the screen. No other handheld can do
It's cheap. Just £124.99.
It's open. You want to develop your own games for the GP2X? Go right
ahead. The SDK is included with the system free. Not since the days of
the Amiga has a system been so easy to develop for, commercially and for
The GP2X isn't just another wannabe be Gameboy. Its a whole different design. A whole new idea for a handheld games system.
But wait, we're not new to the scene. Heard of the GP32? An accidental
experiment in an open source handheld that went right. Some 30,000 units
were sold worldwide, mostly in the UK and parts of Europe. The machine
has an astonishing following. The GP2X is the successor.
We hope you will enjoy it.
