Android lovers, have you ever stared down at your smartphone and said, "If only some company would build a handheld gaming device specifically built for the Android OS"? Probably not. But that's not going to stop Hardkernel from trying to turn their Odroid mobile entertainment platform into a hit. We first reported on the Odroid back in September. Hardkernel is billing it as an Android mobile entertainment device. Basically, it's an Android PMP with a 3.5" touchscreen and 3 D-pads. It looks a little ugly to me, but it packs solid hardware (the same 600 MHz processor as the iPod touch) and can handle 720p-Out. The Odroid isn't for sale yet, but copies have started shipping to to developers. (Android Guys)It's now confirmed that the Odroid also packs 512 MB of RAM, Android 1.5, and the most hideous design of any PMP I've ever seen. But that doesn't stop it from being one of the most powerful handheld devices on the market. If enough developers can put off quality games for this thing, I can see it developing a powerful niche following. Right now you can get a developer edition for $349. That includes the Odroid, a debugging board, TTA20 to USB cable, 2 1300 mAH batteries, schematics data, the source code, a 2 GB microSD card and an 8 GB Class 6 SDCH card.
