GamePark Holdings announce GP2X F-200, a new portable console

You probably started to think that your good buddies over at GamePark Holdings were going to leave you high and dry on a new iteration of their Linux-based, homebrewer's dream -- the GP2X -- seeing as it's been over a year since we've heard any stirrings beyond the recently released Commercial Interface Board.

Well, that's all a-changin', as we've just gotten word that the brand-spanking-new GP2X F-200 is on its way out this October, sporting a handsome white finish. The specs don't deviate drastically from the GP2X F-100, utilizing the same dual core ARM920T processors for host and video number crunching, 64MB of RAM, and SD card support.

Where the new model does differ, however, is with the addition of a 320 x 240 QVGA touchscreen (with stylus), and a complete redesign of the gamepad, moving away from the previous, mushroom-like protrusion to a more flush, PSP-esque controller. So for all you DIY'ers with a penchant for video gaming, a desperate need to playback video, audio, and check out family photos, and a bizarre fascination with obscure Korean electronics -- it's your lucky day.

one of those portable that sell some thousands and fail to move on?

But it won't touch the DS or PSP, not when DS has Pokemon/Mario and PSP has homebrew/emulation.

I knew it. DS and PSP had a secret afair, hidden from the eyes of Sony and Nintendo and now here is their love child!
Nice and interesting find and news.

PSP and DS combined are more dominant than what PS2 was. Meaning that any handheld system that wants to enter the games market will fail immediately when introduced.

Bubbles to MK Red

Exactly what I thought when I saw the pic. Nice rip off maybe they can sell a few thousand of these to poor little kids who have no idea this is a cheap knockoff without the good titles to play on.

Still beats selling fake Mexican 360s for a living.

The funny thing is that they even don't have an easy name. GP2X F-200 isn't exactly the name that people can remember.
