GP2X - The New Mobile Entertainment Device by Gamepark Holdings announced - preorders open now!

Gamepark Holding's new mobile entertainment system

The GP2X offers everything for your mobile entertainment - right out of your pocket. Being on the move, or just plugged directly into your TV's S-Video connection, you can enjoy:

  • Playing Games
  • Watching Movies
  • Listening to Music
  • Reading E-Books
  • Viewing Photos

  • Powered by embedded Linux, the GP2X offers video playback of sources up to a resolution of 720x480. The vivid 3.5inch screen features 170,000 colors and a 320x240 pixel TFT LCD display. Backed by a Dual-CPU, both clocked at 200Mhz, 64MBytes of Flash Memory (non-volatile to store data) and 64MBytes of RAM, it gives you all a video games enthusiast can ask for. The system is free for anybody to develop software on, be it emulators or native applications. Games and emulators perfectly utilize the screen resolution. The buttons are laid out in a classic style, essential for true gaming.

    Besides its gaming capabilities, the GP2X is a rich multimedia device. It supports multiple codecs for video (MPEG, MPEG4, DivX, XVid) and audio (MP3, OGG, WMA) and you are able to hook up the device to your TV-Set. Viewing pictures you have just taken? Just put an SD-Card in the socket and view them with your friends and family. It has never been that easy.

    This all comes at a very affordable preorder price of US$179.00. The GP2X will be in stock by the end of November, just in time for Christmas!
