Apparently Panasonic has been working itself into a frenzy over a new handheld video game console designed solely around the concept of taking MMORPGs with you everywhere you go â€" like you weren’t already wasting too much of your life. The makers of the ill-fated 3DO are returning to the gaming world with a portable system dubbed “The Jungle.†The clamshell device will allegedly sport a super high-resolution display, features a full QWERTY keyboard along with what looks like a touch sensitive d-pad and button arrangement, and may run atop a custom Linux build. The Jungle will also apparently sport a mini HDMI port, a micro USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Alongside the system itself, Panasonic will launch a Battlestar Galactica title for the device, and a web show called Online Underground.
We’re digging up more details right now, but the company (actually an offshoot of Panasonic called Panasonic Cloud Entertainment) has already set up shop with a site and a few teaser videos. Check out the mysterious new handheld in one more pic and a video after the break (along a look at the Battlestar Galactica title), and stay tuned as we unearth the full story on the Jungle.

It's just for this...
Even then, it would look like a nice portable web browsing device.

Very interesting, Really want to know the specs, I have a feeling its aimed for facebook users -_-

If the specs are good and able to play 9/10 of GOG's library then i may consider buying one

May flop though like PSPgo

It's gonna require partnerships and ports, to say the least, and this thing is going to live and die on the content it's got. Or, it's gotta run games in a browser.

I was searching for Llano news when I stumbled across these reports...

Never gonna happen. If your device's headlining title is Battlestar Galactica Online, chances are WoW wasn't an option
