I'm not too good with spoken german the way I am with written text but I can give you a vague translation.
This is the first public prototype of the Pandora. It's a handheld about the same size as a DS which we have been developing over the past year. It's a combination of a mini-pc, pda and games console. It runs on Linux so it's free software, so that anyone who already programs for linux can program for this.
<Not sure what is said here but I think ED said that you don't have to run linux use it, just copy programs onto the sd card and go>
<Something I don't understand at all>
It has an 800x480 screen, touchscreen, keyboard, WLAN so it's great for surfing the net, messaging and writing emails.
- So What can you play on pandora?
It's possible to play emulators like Amiga or other emulators up to the Playstation. Or of course you can play homebrew games or self-written games. There are already quite a few good ones for linux.
- My question is when can I buy it, where and for how much?
All the info is on openpandora.de, Preorders will start on 30th September for 250 Euro and it should be sent out on 13th November.

thats like 400 dollars....
I thought the price was going to remain the same...
I think the US price is lower at $330 because it doesn't include VAT
