    Potential for Windows ME or XP?

    Yes, I know this is quite am ambitious proposal. I'm no real programmer and  I've never owned a Pandora, much less seen one in person. But with performance being more than doubled, and emulation of an i286 being more than doable on a Pandora, couldn't we have the Pyra hypothetically run Windows...

    Pyra should have a female tripod connector built in to the case.

    Well, I would like to see some kind of a do-it-all computer in the future that had one... I don't see it really being useful on the Pyra, however.

    Thoughts on wireless hardware

    I for one would totally use an IR transceiver. I have a PDA from 2001, and some other cool gear that uses it. It's a must for robot control, seeing as how using IR at the slave end only really needs 1 pin if you're only receiving.

    Docking port

    I think IR would be good too. For me, even if it ain't x86, pure versatility would be the selling point. I want a durable machine I can use for Skype over 4G, play modern games on, use for controlling robots (something the OP was rarely, if ever, used for, due to it having only 2 UART ports, or...

    Finding a proper name and logo :)

    Open Andora Tried to squeeze an Android reference in... Now looks like Open Pandora with the P chopped off.

    I can almost, with 90% certainty saythat the p2 should use an amd apu!

    Now looking at the now outdated Z-60's specs... I imagine you could really grab some x86 linux gamers (because TF2, Gmod and Minecraft do run on Linux) as I used to game with a 1st gen A8 APU computer with just the internal GFX and got really nice frames... I'd pay $800 if I could get 4-6GB of...

    720p? 1080p? 1440p?

    Having a GPU drive that at full res with games would be... well, futile. Unless we have a discrete GPU.

    Pandora Successor Should Not Have A New Name, But...

    How about "Open Pandora Resurrection Edition" after all, we could drastically improve hardware inside the thing.

    Impractical Pandora-successor names

    I'm thread viewer # 5554, which most likely makes you number 5555! WOOO! This is some thread. How about the

    An additional reason to have 2 full sized SD ports with one being SDIO

    You had me thinking "yes" when you mentioned 1 being SDIO. The more SDIO, the more we can sell it to those looking for high-grade robot control in a PDA that they can do all their gaming AND work on. AKA more versatility, which you can never have enough of. And 21 Mbps? That's faster than my...

    Considering cheap(ish) phone your thoughts..?

    Well... I have a Samsung Brightside which I got with a contract. It was later reviewed as one of the top 5 worst phones of the year. I'm sure you really can't go wrong with a phone like that.

    Original Gameboy + extras!

    Hello all, I have decided to part with my original gameboy with charger, , case, and definitely 3rd part light addon. I have a bunch of pictures here: (In case adding them to this post doens't work out properly at first) I'm not really naming prices, just toss some offers. Trades are also...

    dedicated USB OTG mouses (check for interest..)

    Perhaps some member here ought to buy a batch and sell them. It probably wouldn't turn much profit.

    Nvidia's Project Shield - 'Android & Tegra 4 inside'

    I'm building a new PC soon, but I'm using AMD graphics since they're better value... So pretty much I like the Shield, but I ain't buying. I will definitely buy the Switchblade when/if they offer it, regardless of stats. it's like the OP, but for Windows fans.

    Pandora phone

    I'll wager the next Pandora will have a camera on the front, but either way you could, with the current Open Pandora and the right software* and a 3G/4G dongle or wifi hotspot, make phone calls. *I don't own an OP. Don't trust me. But it can be done. All of the hardware could easily do it.

    Will we ever see this with a quad core and some decent ram?

    I think the best you could really hope for in the next OP is either an AMD processor likely with discrete GPU or something like the Tegra 4 or better. Of course, this is all speculation. Just don't expect an i7, 8 GB of RAM with a GTX 770 GPU. That's coming in the OP3.

    All new threads must be polls?

    POLLCEPTION With all these (support) polls, we can be sure the OP2 is well supported.

    How many preorders need to be filled?

    Now that I actually know about the numbers related to the preorders, how many (approximately) preorders of Craig's need to be filled? I guess this topic should be open to mods and other users if they know.

    Avoiding the obvious: The OP 1.5

    I've noticed that half the threads here are about x86 and other dilemmas. Perhaps, instead of making the OP2.0, we fix the design flaws, test 1 or 2 new ideas, upgrade the NAND, RAM, and processor with a slightly different motherboard and case? Perhaps swap USB 2.0 for 3.0 if the ARM processor...
