GP2X hardware platform


During ARM BoF at DebConf7 i proposed a new hardware to support on
Debian as NSLU2 is, called GP2X, which is an open-platform under 200€,
already runnning linux kernel.

Someone interested?

Some information about it:


   * Chipset: MagicEyes MMSP2 MP2520F System-on-a-Chip
   * CPU: 200MHz ARM920T host, 200MHz ARM940T
   * NAND Flash ROM: 64 MB
   * RAM: SDRAM 64 MB
   * Operating System: Linux-based OS
   * Storage: SD Card
   * Connection to PC: USB 2.0 High Speed
   * USB Host: USB 1.1
   * Power: 2 × AA battery or via AC adapter
   * Display: 320×240 3.5 inch, 65,536 colors TFT LCD
   * TV output
   * Physical size: 143.6 mm wide, 82.9 mm high, 27 mm (excl.
joystick approx.) / 34 mm deep
   * Weight: 161 g (without battery)

From the GP2X.org wiki: The ARM940T is used by GPH's implementation of
Linux to control video processing. Using the 940T core in Linux for
other tasks apart from video processing is difficult but possible.
Accessing the hardware directly makes it easier to use both CPUs.
