Not Even Coolio Would Game On The Cool8800C
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.
