The successor to the Linux-based GP32 handheld games console will launch in the UK on 18 May, promising to bring gamers a gadget capable not only of playing native games and well-known titles under emulation, but also movies, music, and picture slideshows.

The GP2X contains two 240MHz processors, 64MB of RAM, and 64MB of Flash. It sports a 320 x 240 LCD and is powered by a pair of AA batteries - enough, claimed the console's UK distributor, for six hours' gameplay. There's an SD card slot for expansion, and a USB port for PC connectivity.

Since it's based on Linux, the console is ready to run a range of open source games, emulators, and ports of older titles. It can also play host to a number of media players supporting pretty much all the standard video, music and picture formats. The console ships with a full software development kit.

The version of the GP2X being offered in the UK is the second release, sporting an updated display and version 2.0 firmware. The console will cost £125 inc VAT, or $190 if you're buying from outside Europe. Pre-orders are now being taken at www.gp2x.co.uk.
