Wood Firmware Update v1.50
The latest update of Wood has hit and this time it provides updates for folks eager to play Pokemon Black and White 2!
Check out the changelog and files below.
I just had an update from the folks over at K-Team. The new K101 model will go into production sometime in the middle of August and should be stocked on K1GBA.com when production is finished.
It’s worth noting that I’ve heard nothing from K1GBA.com so at this point I’m recommending visitors do not order any K1s.
The Indie Android Console - OUYA
Every so often a great idea comes along and everyone gets behind it, the Raspberry Pi is a great example of that. OUYA, an Android power handheld, hopes to Kickstart its way to a similar level of success.
The dream is relatively simple — an inexpensive open source console device to support the growing array of indie developers. The best bit is developers for the device have too offer something back for free — whether it be a demo, a F2P version, or just the whole game.
In return developers get a kit that doesn’t cost the earth to develop on — did I mention it runs on the familiar Android OS?
For $90 you receive an OUYA at launch if you live in the U.S., for us Brits it’ll cost about £80 due to the extra shipping cost.
It’s a great time to be retro and a great time to be indie. My Raspberry Pi should arrive sometime in the next two weeks and when it does I’ll have a great, and cheap, retro emulator — I can’t wait for the launch of the OUYA have to have an equally inexpensive indie console sitting right next to it.
JXD S5100 Deluxe Edition
Obscure Handhelds spotted this one before me, the JXD S5100 Deluxe which has appeared across the usual Chinese android device sites. Sporting a sleek 3DS-inspired design, a 5” capacitative touch-screen, and Android 2.3 but no shoulder butto, a deal-breaker, and an analogue nub rather than a stick. The JXD S5100D sticks out as a halfway house between a tablet and a games console, I’d give this one a miss.
