Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB) October 16, 2010
When consumers think about portable gaming hand-helds, they probably think about Nintendo and Sony first. That is perfectly logical given just how important the Game Boy line was to the history of gaming and just how popular the PSP line is today. But the hand-held gaming world is much, much bigger than just two giant companies. All sorts of smaller firms are also vying to create a niche for themselves in the gaming world, with GPH being one of the underground leaders producing emulator-ready handhelds.
The company is very well known for GP2X, but this new device is looking even better than the others that have come before it. CAANOO is an open source monster with the flexibility to play far more games than the standard PSP or DSI. Inside, there's a 533MHz ARM9 CPU, alongside 128MB of RAM, a 3D GPU, a 3.5" touch panel joystick controller, an accelerometer, a G-sensor and even a vibration function.
If the consumer isn't using it to play the latest open source titles or consumer's favorite throwback emulator game, it can even handle a fair amount of multi-media. DivX, Xvid and MPEG4 codecs are supported.
Also, there is FunGP, GPH's open content store, which opened in August, 2010. Through FunGP, users and developers are able to download and upload all kinds of games and apps easily. Also, users will be able to check out their game ranking and buy game items.
So if consumers love the old classic games or are inveterate retro-gamer, and they wish this in their hands, CAANOO is just for them.
