The initial version of the app will come bundled with Space Harrier II, but then once you’re inside the collection, you’ll be able to add new games, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin and Shining Force for starters.
The guys who make the lovable, hackable Chumby have a little something new up their sleeves. Tucked away in an inconspicuous spot in the Marvell booth at the CES show, I managed to snag a spec-sheet for their upcoming tablet computer platform, currently code-named “Sunfury”.
I guess I’ve heard worse names for products than this one, but if you can look past the idiotic name of the new Sony Bloggie line of digital MP4 cameras, you’ll actually find a very nice bit of technology for the price.

You can’t throw a Koopa shell without running into some sort of device that can play at least a few classic Nintendo games, and most of those are portable, too. So the game’s open. Essentially, everyone can have a portable SNES (of sorts)… so how far are you willing to go to stand out?

I’ll start out by saying that I’m really not all that excited by all the pocket projectors that have started to flood the market. At least not yet. I mean really, how many of us really need a tiny dim projector when we’ve got giant 60-inch LCDs and Plasmas in our living rooms these days.
While this wouldn’t be the first handheld based on the Sega Dreamcast, I have to say that from the looks of these blurryvision pics, it sure looks like a good one.
Fans of the classic Sega console will appreciate the clean and compact styling of this portable remake what is arguably one of the best consoles of all time.

I’m not a Twitter addict – although I do have an account – so I might be wrong on this one, but will a device that only sends and receives tweets be worth buying? That’s what Peek is counting on as is launches the TwitterPeek.
The rumors were right – Nintendo officially unveiled the DSi LL, which is basically a Nintendo DSi but with much larger 4.2-inch screens, a 93% increase over the 3.2-inch screens on the DSi. The DSi LL also has 2 pens, a relatively jumbo sized 5-inch pen and a smaller pen that’s still slightly larger than the touch pen on the DSi.
