I bought it because it's cheap, runs quite a few emulators and has buttons... I have an iPad and iPhone... And I hate gaming on them!
For me, it does what I want, and I don't have to buy software... Maybe it's closer to the Amiga than I first thought...
I also have a netbook and last year I took it on holiday, connected a joypad and a tv and played alien fish finger and it was awesome!!!
But I like the idea of taking the caanoo everywhere
