Games Korean company GamePark Holdings have finally released the GP2x Wiz portable games console, the successor to the popular, but abruptly end-of-life'd, GP2x. What makes these portable devices special is that they run Linux, and are more or less aimed at the enthusiast and homebrew markets.

Very Little info

There seems to be little information available on the web. For instance, the stores that sell it do not give the screen resolution. I hope it is not 320*240. With its 500+Mhz engine it would be like putting a Ferrari engine in a VW beetle.

Also I assume this can play emulated games but I can't find any stated info this. How do they expect to sell it?

There are already a few emulators ready from the GP2x open source scene. Have a look at the community sites from the gp2x, they are already there to download.

And if you mean the rom images from the games... well they don't need to sell those as they are already around.
