OpenHandhelds.de is a brandnew and growing portal in german language, specialized in Open Handhelds such as the Wiz, GP2x and Pandora.
In den nächsten Tagen werden wir einige neue Artikelserien starten, die euch hoffentlich die Wartezeit bis zum Release der Pandora etwas kurzweiliger gestalten. Ihr könnt gespannt sein, welche Themen sich unser Team für euch ausgedacht hat.
Natürlich werden wir auch die Features und das Design der Website weiter ausbauen. Beispielsweise werdet ihr bald die Möglichkeit haben, unsere Artikel per RSS-Feed zu abonnieren.
Wir möchten uns für die geäußerte konstruktive Kritik bedanken, und versuchen die Verbesserungsvorschläge bald umzusetzen.
Schaut einfach in ein paar Tagen mal wieder rein, dann gibt es sicherlich einige Neuheiten zu entdecken.
Good luck, colleagues! :)
Gernot is working on a WIZ game, which also does run on a real WIZ as proven here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGn1aWlwOas
The game is NOT yet public, but there is a Windows demo, available from here: http://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=2395.0
Here’s a preview of a game I made for the WIZ. Me playing with one hand, while holding the camera is a bit awkard, sorry.
The game uses the old pixel engine I had in the GP2X. I’m working on the OpenGL|ES version ATM.
The particels are alpha blended, but it’s still very quick. Also the pixel rotation in realtime is no deal the the WIZ. The game is a slideshow when running on a GP2X, overclocked to 240 MHz.
Wonder how the Wiz looks from inside? EvilDragon makes it possible!
Thanks to Guyfawkes / http://www.emuboards.com for the news.
Orkie has us just let known, that the Wiz had finally its last changes. You may recognize that the right side, which used to have a D-Pad has buttons now.
A few people were not happy with the two D-Pads, which looked quite odd for most of us.
Gamepark Holdings decided to work out minor things, but these will result into a shipping delay of few weeks.
Read on what Evildragon told us earlier today:
Some of you may know GPH and me are currently at the IFA exhibition in Berlin.
We had quite some conversations during the last days – and I’m really happy to announce the following:
The 2nd DPad of the Wiz will be replaced with 4 proper buttons! AND the 2.5mm headphone jack will be replaced with a 3.5mm one.
So the only flaws I could see with this system will be fixed!
On the downside it means that the release of the Wiz will be delayed for 30 days (so it will be shipped in November), but I think that’s best.
If you like that decision, you can use this thread to thank GPH, as they will be reading it!
EvilDragon ( http://www.gp2x.de ) visited the IFA 2008 (Internationale Funkausstellung) in Berlin and got a bunch of WIZ pictures for us.

Guyfawkes was wondering how big the Wiz would be in size compared to other handhelds so with the help of Size Easy, he entered some handheld sizes to see how big the Wiz is.
You can view the page linked below. The Wiz (Violet) is slightly bigger than a GBA Micro (Blue) and slightly smaller than a DS Lite (Green).
Thanks to http://www.emuholic.com for this interesting comparison!
