Pandora size comparison

2010-06-08 15:42
I have been asked to post a picture showing some handheld consoles to compare their sizes to the Pandora handheld. So here it is, a picture, showing the Dingoo A330, the Dingoo A320, the GP2X-F100, the Pandora console and the Ben NanoNote.

The Pandora's size (when closed) is almost identical to that of the GP2X. Also, they are both equally thick when including the GP2X's battery compartment, which sticks out a little.

New Ben NanoNote firmware

2010-04-10 15:42
A new firmware image for the Ben NanoNote has been released. This image also includes the Gmu music player and comes with gmenu2x preinstalled, which is launched at boot instead of a shell.

Probably the easiest way to update the firmware is to use the shell script.

Make sure to also read the Official Software Image wiki page which has a change log.

Finally: Gmu 0.7.0 is here!

2010-03-29 15:42
After eight beta releases it is finally here: The Gmu Music Player version 0.7.0. This Gmu release comes with full source (GPLv2 licensed) and is available for the GP2X (with Open2X firmware), the GP2X Wiz, the Dingoo A320 (with Dingux) and the Ben NanoNote. Please note that due to the new theme engine old Gmu skins are no longer compatible with this release. Creating new themes is rather simple though. For those who are interested in creating Themes for Gmu, just have a look at the supplied default theme for now. If I find some time, I'll write a little theme creation tutorial later on. Compared to the last beta release there are only a few minor changes and bug fixes. Most of these changes are relevant for porting Gmu to new devices and are less visible to the end user. Still, it is worth upgrading Gmu even if you have been using the last beta release, as some bugs have been fixed.

Ben NanoNote - First impressions

2010-03-03 15:42
Thanks to the guys from qi-hardware, I've just got my own Ben NanoNote. I want to share a few impressions of the little device with you. Here are some pictures which I have taken right after unpackaging it.

The Ben NanoNote came in a nice black box, quite similar to the package of the GP2X F100.
