If you’re a gamer into Open Source devices, you might want to get your hands on the Open Pandora. The road to creating one of the most innovative devices on the market right now started over a decade ago. The good people over at The Powerbase wrote an excellent review on the Open Pandora:

The Powerbase:
There are a lot of really cool open source devices out there, and we’ve always tried to cover as many of them as possible here at The Powerbase through our articles and hands-on reviews. But there has always been one particular piece of hardware that we’ve wanted to cover, one device that really sums up in our mind the concept of community development: the Open Pandora.

Thanks to Mark Linkhorst of, we were recently able to put in some serious time with the latest version of the device to see first hand how this completely community developed mobile device turned out.
