Q2 2006 will see the launch of the new widescreen Gizmondo handheld console, created by Tiger Telematics. This widescreen model is supposed to compete with Sony's PlayStation Portable, and will support Wi-Fi wireless networking, as well as Bluetooth 2.0 for faster wireless connections. Clock speed is set to run above 500MHz, and the unit will be based on Windows CE 5.0. The unit also features voice support with an integrated speakerphone and voice control and a TV-out port.

The widescreen machine's release date remains uncertain, however - Q2 2006 is simply a projected timeframe, Tiger said. However, it pledged to demo the device at next January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
