Retro gaming handheld “GameGadget” coming in March


GameGadget is a UK-developed, open-source handheld that plays “a variety” of classic games which are downloadable from an online store. Details of those games are currently scarce, but what we can tell you is that the GameGadget handheld will be going on sale in the UK in March through distributor Blaze Europe.

For £99.99, you get a handheld with a 3.5″ LCD screen (320×240), four face buttons, two shoulder buttons and a D-pad. Under the hood, the machine is packing a 433mHz dual core CPU, 64MB of RAM and 2GB of flash memory, with expandable storage through SD cards.

An interesting little device, if a little pricey. One would think that the price of the software and the quality of the emulation will make or break the system.
