actually, i'd disagree that the amiga needs keyboard controls to play games - you can either patch the game (WHDload adding CD32 controls for example) or map a number of keyboard buttons to joypad buttons/combinations.

On the ZX Spectrum, few games used the joystick at all, and so some games use tonnes and tonnes of keys, (e.g. Skool Daze) - for these, i've found ZX-DS to be a perfect with its touch-on-lower-screen keyboard.

A two-screen system like that would work for the Miggy too without a "proper" keyboard, but i really dont think it needs it as much.

i like the idea of the Pandora, i do... i'm just unsure because it's taken so long. They really should ahve kept upping the spec a bit more.
