I find the Flow G1.5 from http://www.gizmoforyou.net quite an
interesting dev-kit. Wish I had 520 Euro spare to play with. Also the
Daughter VX 1.0 and the PXA Gaming Platform look almost as fun. Again,
if I had some spare cash, I'd have both of these as well.

I do have a GP2X, which was the forerunner of Pandora. It's not
vaporware, despite appearances.

Unfortunately, I don't have enough money to play with all these emerging
embedded toys and test gravity regularly, and I'd prefer to test
gravity. I get less abuse from the wife testing gravity than playing
with code.
