Because the high demand of PS3 user, they want to jailbreak their PS3 via GP2X Wiz.
Dingoo is already ported, so the next one is Wiz.

Look at vector games in MAME on the Wiz. No LCD handheld game system beats the look, none. I hate LCD, it is one thing I don't like about the Pandora, not a good black level.Genesis games look absolutely fantastic with the OLED screen also. For example, Castle of Illusion, and the Sonic games.
My Wiz is over a year old and it still works fine, as well. I can't say I'm that crazy about the screen though. It's really grainy. The benefits of OLED are quite obvious when you're using MAME or watching a movie or something, though. I just hope the price of OLED screens will go down so that higher quality ones can be used in handhelds, and for less. Then maybe we'll see them being used way more (and less screen failures).
As for the size of the screen, I really don't mind small screens. Actually I like them, because stuff looks better when it's scaled down. Stuff like psx games look better on a psp/wiz/etc than they do on a tv, for example. (IMO, obviously)

I wonder if this means that Caanoo demand was less than GPH thought it'd be..
I'm pretty sure Caanoo demand is high. For some reason, people always keep buying their consoles, one after another, and each model sells even better than they previous one. How they can afford getting a new console every one and a half/two years, is something I don't know.

The title is a bit misleading They're only producing one new batch of Wiz, in very limited quantities. After that, they won't be able to source more OLED screens. They will presumably keep some spare screens for use in repairs, but after they run out of them, there'll be no more Wiz. All of this has apparently been confirmed by Anarchy. I wonder why it's so hard to find OLED screens.
Overly glad to hear that... a good step to support the Wiz a bit longer. While i basically have absolutely nothing against the Cannooo (my only objection is the weird name) the small form-factor Wiz is my fav currently. It just fits everywhere and still maintains a sharp & vivid display. I hope they are manufacturing a few additional battery packs for aftersale support too

from what i remember, the wiz is no longer in production
But Thinkgeek who are a reputable reseller of Wiz are expecting stock in "1-3 weeks". Does that mean Gph still have new old stock of Wiz's for certain resellers?

*shrugs* We'll see where this goes, I like OLED's despite the potential for serious damage...
Also, GPH, you really need to get your ass in gear about supporting your english customers hardware and delivering the software from funGP especially titles you said would wind up available to us... As far as Caanoo is concerned real new 3D titles are MIA somewhere in Korea being played by school children with no money...
