About the same size as a Nintendo DS, the Pandora was developed from the ground-up to be the ultimate portable emulation and homebrew device. Whether you want to kick it old school with some NES classics or hack your way into some cool homebrew applications, the Pandora is supposed to have you covered.

The Pandora comes equipped with a 800 x 480 touchscreen display, dual analog sticks, SNES-style direction pad and buttons, QWERTY keyboard, a Gamecube-speed processor, separate GPU, Wi-Fi, and an SD card slot. That’s certainly more powerful than a Nintendo DS or the GP2X.

Despite having quite the formidable feature set, the biggest pitfall for the Pandora is that “the software is not as easy as pie to install… and early adopters will find themselves out in the cold.” This is because you still need a community to develop the applications and if no one buys the Pandora, no one is going to develop anything for it. The $330 asking price is a little steep too.
