I'm definately not going to use my Android phone to play emulators with touch controls (god, I HATE those) or a BT joypad. This isn't an option for a handheld console. I don't see me carrying a BT gamepad with me, just to play emulators on my mobile phone (with a much smaller screen).
Of course there are other ways to play emulators. Android, PSP, Dangoo, GP2X, ... My point was that they all don't compare with the Pandora.
There has to be much better and cheaper Linux devices on the market today?
My point was to say that there isn't any.
I know I'm sounding like a fanboy. Fact is that I'm looking for a handheld console for about 1,5 years now. There are good handhelds, but when you not just want to emulate consoles (NES,SNES,GBC,MD) but also home computers like Amiga, Atari and C64 you NEED a keyboard. NO handheld console offers that.
That said, there ARE already alot of emulators for Pandora (Amiga included). Just check the forums and available videos on the blog.
