Gamepark’s GP2X Linux PMP with Homebrew

Many companies have designed portable media players that simply play your favourite video content, or your library of MP3s, but what if you could double that device for gaming as well? No it’s not the Sony PSP, but close. Gamepark’s GP2X PMP powered by Linux will be shipping soon. And of course, it plays all your DivX, Xvid WMV, WMA and OGG files as well as SNES and MAME games. The company was taking pre-orders back in September, but now you can finally get your hands on this little unit with a 3.5-inch 320×240 display. The GP2X also supports homebrew applications.

The unit is selling for US $179 from Play-Asia.com and should ship soon.
