Heard about Pandora about a month ago and I'm really interested.
I have a few questions, though:
  1. Is the touchscreen precise?
  2. I don't know a lot about linux or ubuntu or all those. Will Pandora ship with a real OS with buttons and pictures and GUI for stupid people like me?
  3. How will you charge the Pandora?
  4. How many USB ports? Ability to charge Pandora?
  5. Will it be retail-ish in some stores?
  6. Is there a place to put a/the stylus? Is there a stylus included?
  7. Button sensitivity? Like in Dualshock 2 and 3 have.
  8. Screen reaction time?
  9. Will dosbox (or similar) run?
  10. Analog sticks are: "2mm travel from centre". Means you can move it 2mm in any direction? Seems very short.
  11. Hold/lock button?
  12. Can you swap Y and Z? (German keyboard has that)
  13. Are there shiny and beautiful LEDs all over the place?
  14. Let's say I drop a Pandora from 1,00 m onto hard floor. Will it most likely break?
  15. Will the warranty void when you open the Pandora?
  16. "TV Output" will require an extra cable?
  17. What is the highest game the Pandora could run? I've read it can run Quake 3 (which is nice) but anything above that?
  18. How big is the interest? Will there be enough developers?
  19. Will the screen turn off when you close the Pandora?
  20. How good can you see the screen in sunlight?
If I have more questions I will update this.

Thank you.

Damn, that's a lot of questions. There is a search button you know? but i will be nice, hope the flaming is not too bad ;):

5 yes, but probably not near you since it will be very limited
6 yes, in the casing
7 dunno
8 dunno
9 yes up to 386
10 looks good to me, check the blog section

11 thought not, but not sure
12 Yes in software, and probably hardware as well if u open the thing
13 there are some, they are color programmable so you can make it as flashy as you like
14 might break, might not. but i would not try it if i were you
15 afaik not as long as you don't do anything stupid
16 yes, but it will be provided
17 Totally speculative, nobody knows yet
18 there will not be many commercial titles but there will be enough to play in it with emulators and ports
19 if you want to, yes.
20 probably not too well in direct sunlight

Those would have been true if my first three questions had been "Are you funny?" and the fourth "Will you ever be funny?".

Thanks MarkoeZ, that helps.

21. The PSP and DS screens are really blurry; Will pandora have the same?

i know that was a joke, but come on, thats just stupid.

Try to at least post something with a small sense of intelligence.

It seems you have found all the answers you want, try to find the answer in the faqs in future, the pandora wiki is very helpful ^^

Why the hell are these threads allowed to swarm the forums? They're all questions that have been mentioned MULTIPLE times, with answers readily available in stickies, the Wiki, and by using the search button. I don't know the official policy of the moderation staff on this stuff, but I gotta say, the job of keeping this place clean is kinda piss-poor, IMO.

Hey, there's only so many of us, we can't moderate 24/7. Sometimes we have to eat, sleep and work.
