The GP2X F200, was one in a series of open source hand held machines, which could play games, music, video and pictures.
This was the third incarnation of the machine, the first being the GP32, followed by the GP2X, it was succeeded by the GP32X Wiz, which added some welcome features such as an inbuilt lithium battery.
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, the F200 model has a touch screen and pen for easier operation.
