Jan 23rd 2008 - A teaser site for Gizmondo just appeared on the Internet boasting that the "Legend is Reborn." Is it a cruel hoax or a fresh bid to resurrect Gizmondo as the Swedish press claims?
If true, the service is set for a Christmas 2008 launch with the promise of an "Open Source Environment" in the "Gizmondo Live Marketplace" with "Exciting Psychic Worlds" that will "Democratize Gaming" with a supposed $100 device.
Check out the teaser and Swedish press report via Engadget.
Notes: The Gizmondo was a handheld gaming device with GPRS and GPS technology, which was manufactured by Tiger Telematics. Launched in 2005, the Gizmondo sold poorly; by February of 2006, the company discontinued the Gizmondo and was forced into bankruptcy.
