I wonder, not to start any conspiracy theories, if any of those posts are plants.
Clever companies always keep an eye on the competition and news blogs, and some the comments from unverified authors promote the PSP and DS.
For instance on Engadged, 2 posts within 4 minutes by an unverified author, one saying "It looks like a DS" then "I don't think these will ever ship".
Seems like they'd post something more trolly if they were wanting to piss people off.

Or could be bad trolls, whatever, just my 2 pennys.

Tobs

"I don't think these will ever ship" is pretty trolly if you ask me. It's obvious by the picture that it's about ready to go and they post something like that. "It looks like a DS" is fine. It does. Just has one screen, that's all. "That looks craptacular. So who was waiting for one of these again?" is another troll post.

Hardly a media report, but Charles Stross, a Scottish science fiction writer who occasionally blogs about gadgets, seems to be following the progress of Pandora development. In fact, given that he often blogs about related devices - and most importantly, as a Linux user and someone who understands what the device stands for, OP could probably do worse than sending him a review unit.

Not a media report, but the after effects of. Youtube honours for MWeston's latest video, single digits bolded, most interesting one redded.

Guys, just set up a Google alert for the term 'Pandora handheld'. I noticed the alert going crazy over the last few days after being dormant for ages. Nine in two days is good going.

I may be one of the few (only one) who doesn't have a google account and not wanted to set one up either. :lol: Do you need one for this?

Also would it give you a good list so that someone can come along and have a browse of the write ups at a later date?

"MSRP", "suggested retail price"... methinks that some of these articles don't quite get it.

That engadget article is pretty wrong 'well in to the new year'. The case edits are not as major as people think. We are expecting an update tomorrow/monday.

That's all there is left to do.

So you might get an update on Saturday? Wow, the Chinese really don't get any time off.

Most factories in North America run 7 days a week as well, at least all the ones I've worked at. A couple of them were even 24/7. It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that they would be working on a Saturday. In fact, it would surprise me if the factory actually did shut down for the weekend. Especially since it's a plastics factory. Injection moulds need to be quite hot, and stopping on the weekend allows them to cool to the point that it can be very expensive and time consuming getting them back to optimal temperature.
