GP2X First Edition

The GP2X, was one in a series of open source hand held machines, which could play games, music, video and pictures.
This was the second incarnation of the machine, the first being the GP32, it was succeeded by the GP32X F200, which had slightly improved battery life and a touch screen.

The series became a hit with retro gamers, as they could emulate older consoles rather well, soon emulation programs for 8 bit computers and consoles arrived, and a good selection of consoles were supported from the Master System to the Neo Geo.

The machine was hampered slightly by poor battery life, it ran on two AA cells that drained very fast, even alkaline batteries would only last 2-3 hours, the second revision and new firmware updates did help extend their life.

The machine is Linux based and was brought to market by GamePark Holdings of South Korea.

The machine has an icon driven front end to access the games, videos etc.
