The Wiz is no slouch in the gaming department.  Outfitted with an Arm9 533MHz processor with a 3D accelerator, 64MB of RAM, 1GB of built-in NAND flash memory, an external SD card slot, a single USB 2.0 connection, a 2.8-inch OLED touch screen panel with a resolution of 320 by 240 and is supported by a 2000mAh Lithium-Ion battery that supposedly gets five hours of play time.  It’ll launch with commercial games, but the biggest draw should be it’s ability to emulate classic titles from NES, Super NES, Genesis, N64 and more.  What’s cooler you ask?  It supports Flash 7, has a media player and a massive community of open source geeks building all sorts of goodies for it.

Expect the Wiz to hit Internet store shelves in October for around $180.  You can preorder it here

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
