Holy impractical portable gaming device!  While other sites might applaud Cool8800C for its innovative ‘flip open gaming device’ design, I only see a painful gaming experience awaiting every bored commuter.  So yes, conceptually the idea is good, but placing a game pad on a hinge will surely lead to frustration and ultimately buyer’s remorse, right?  Fortunately, the Cool8800C has a number of other things going for it, such as the classic NES titles, which are more about nostalgia than actual game play.  On board is an SD card slot, 2.4-inch WQVGA screen, Bluetooth, GPRS connectivity, analog TV tuner, FM radio and media player.  The handset is available for $140, which will hopefully make the novelty a little longer lasting like double mint gum.

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."
