Pandora Handheld-The most powerful handheld console ever-Who's getting one?

A friend just told me about the Pandora handheld console which are selling fast, it is the most powerful handheld console yet. Look at these specs:

* ARM® Cortex™-A8 600Mhz+ CPU running Linux
* 430-MHz TMS320C64x+™ DSP Core
* PowerVR SGX OpenGL 2.0 ES compliant 3D hardware
* 800x480 4.3" 16.7 million colours touchscreen LCD
* Wifi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth & High Speed USB 2.0 Host
* Dual SDHC card slots & SVideo TV output
* Dual Analogue and Digital gaming controls
* 43 button QWERTY and numeric keypad
* Around 10+ Hours battery life

Price in american dollars is $330 I think?

Anyone know about this thing?

Pretty sure 3GS is almost as powerful as this. With a much bigger gaming library and a lot smaller in size.

Wanted this like a year go, now not so much. Will keep an eye on it though to see what becomes of it.

Edit: Still not out yet I believe, according to their website.

Looks too chunky and rather ugly. Plus I prefer the more streamlined aspect of the OS on the iDevices and I'd rather not carry a stylus with me.
