    Hes talking about the Gameboy Advance(GBA). Nokia's New handheld is called the N-Gage. There is a bunch of info about it here N-Gage Sounds pretty cool but I'm sure it will be hella expensive.:dead:

    For entertainment on a train ride,etc, I'd defently get a GBA. Nice and small, ie: portable. Scratch the phone...can you imagine the LCD? :dead: :dead: :dead: If your really into the good stuff, get a PS1, with a LCD and battary pack...that'd be hardcore. LoL, just imagine pulling a Playstation and screen out of your bag, then playing some Gran Toursimo on your ride there :grinthumb

    Personally I'd look at the GBA SP instead

    If your thinking about getting a phone-console, don't. They won't catch on (at least I don't think they will) and will end up losing game support; nice waste of money. If you have *a lot* of money, get a GameCube, LCD, and battery pack. That'd be hella cool. Or if that's too expensive, do the same with a PS1. Or if that too expensive still, get a GBA SP.

    Check out the GP32 - wicked handheld console - open platform so games not too difficult to come by although some of them are crap! The device has a bit of a select following over here - probably due to the restricted numbers that actually make it over! What is has got that GBA SP dont is wireless so if you travel with friends then if they get one you can play multiplayer games!

    Check out http://www.retro-games.co.uk/gp32/gp32.htm for more info!
