Couple of months back, we reported about a new Open Source Linux gaming handheld GameGadget. At that time we were a bit suspicious as many such projects were announced in past and they have now gone into oblivion.
However, it looks like they will deliver it. Few days back GamGadget team has shown a working prototype of the device in action. Check out yourself:
GameGadget will provide all the tools to help developers create their own games. Open source and cross compiling libraries like SDL can be used. Developers will also be able to port their existing games with its SDK. However, no playable games have been shown yet and potential buyers will definitely like to see early game catalog in GameGadget games store.
