Someone has accidentally inspired me to make an attempt to bring my old OpenPandora back to life. A little bit of glue just might do the trick. 😄

For those who don't know what that is, the OpenPandora is a since-discontinued device conceptualized all the way back in 2007-2008 as an handheld console, running . I actually got mine in 2011, about 8 years ago.

Basically it's the same as any other device conceptually, like e.g. a smartphone or tablet. The main difference is that it has a keyboard and gaming controls built-in. It really had no equivalent back then; everything else either had a weird limited OS or no keyboard or both.

As I said, the OpenPandora was discontinued years ago due to an inability of the manufacturers to continue production. But I'm still excited for its spiritual successor, the Pyra, which is basically the same thing, but better:

In the meantime, I'm going to see what I can do with this old puppy. It may be slow and short on RAM, but it's still the only device at this size I've got my hands on so far with a keyboard and gaming controls built in and hey, no sense wasting a perfectly good device just because it's a little old. 🙂
