basically, it’s a miniature Linux PC the size of a Nintendo DS, so way smaller than a Netbook. So you got a pretty neat keyboard, a high-res touchscreen, an incredible battery time (over 10 hours in normal usage) and can do things you can do on a normal PC. Coding, Office Work, Websurfing, etc. However, that’s not all. You also have a proper DPad and buttons to play games – and we made sure these are one of the best (as we’re gamers
ourselves). So you can both replay classic games (SNES, Genesis, Arcade, Amiga, C64, Playstation, etc.), play Linux or Homebrew games or even code your own games. And another special thing is: It’s open. If you want to run Android on it, you can do so. You rather want Debian, Slackware or Ubuntu? You’re free to do that. It’s up to you what you want to do with your Pandora. We won’t lock you down. Heh, and you can also chat with the creators of the device – ever tried doing this with the PSVita or Samsung Galaxy chief developer?
Besides being able to play my PlayStation RPG-Collection on-the-go, I’d say it’s not a function but the community behind it. It’s so much fun seeing first versions of new games or ports – and then following the improvements and enhancements which are being included and discussed by and with the community. That’s awesome. It’s also nice being able to play Android games with proper gaming controls and NOT having to fear that they gather any personal contact data from your system.
