Odroid-S Device Picture (Taken from http://www.hardkernel.com/productsko.php)

Odroid-S is a successor to Odroid, which was produced by Korean opensource hardware company, Hardkernel Co. Ltd. (http://www.hardkernel.com/) located in Republic of Korea.

This family of device design is now constructing a very unique area of opensource hardware development platform, which is accelerated by adopting gaming handheld form-factor (Arrow keys + Minimum 4 Action Buttons + L, R Shoulder Buttons).

This device has undergone great improvement over its predecessor by incoorporating more powerful CPU (Samsung S5PC110, Same CPU used in Galaxy-S) and of course GPU (PowerVR SGX 540, stronger than SGX 535 which is installed in Apple's iPhone 3GS).

Below table shows the direct comparison of specifications between Odroid-S and Odroid.(Data are taken from product description page of Hardkernel's website, and S5PC100, and S5PC110 User's Manual)

Harnessing the CPU/GPU power, it is quiet possible to emulate PSX or N64 games. Recently, ZodTTD, who is famous for developing and porting homebrew emulator to various embedded OS based handhelds, started porting his PSX and N64 emulators to Android OS. The future for Android handhelds emulation is not that gloomy.

Even though its relatively high price (299 USD for Application Developer Edition), I guess it's worth buying for people who wanna indulge into world of Android based Emulation monster.

Below movie shows what this device can do in gaming, have a grip on it.
