Nice dreaming. However, I'm afraid the PDA market is FAR TOO COMPETITIVE unless you've got $billions$ to invest in your idea. As to a hand-held color video game system, the GameBoy has probably got that market tied-up completely. Unless you have something truly innovative to offer as competition you're not likely to succeed in this area either. I seem to recall that the BLACK/WHITE version of GameBoy beat out even the COLOR products from competing manufacturers. This is the same basic problem that will be faced for EVERY possible variation of re-invented C-64. How do you market it successfully? How many can you sell and to whom? What will they use it for? How much will they be willing to pay for it? While you and I (and many other C-64 enthusiasts) would be willing to pay ALOT of $$$ for a new C-64, that's not really a large enough market to justify the development costs. If someone could find a market into which a C-64 based product would fit, I'd be interested to know about. I don't deny it's possible to make such products, I just don't see how any commercial entity could profit from it. --- "Carlsson, Anders" <email@example.com> wrote: > Ruud wrote: > > > If purchsed we intend to make good use of it for > devices such as > > handhled game units and handheld computing > appliances. > > How would a pocket Commodore 64/128 compare to e.g. > Color Gameboy?
