I noticed this has an SDK and a site available:

http://the-nd.com/

I'm certainly interested to see what happens with it. I'm sure a Java SDK could be ported to it. What about you guys?

Looks awesome, using java would be just javasdl - but whats the hardware, how much memory etc, it'll need some beef to run Java nicely.

Maybe some sort of cross compile or GCJ could work quite well tho. Need details of the platform and building for the handheld target rather than using SDL on the desktop to test.

Cheers,

Kev

I have been following this gadget for long time. I like to see old styled game handlet back to strike. And I agree about what they said about nowday modern gaming.

I've heard about this cool little thing for a long time now. Haven't been following it much, however it doesn't looks too......active, especially since the last news is from July 2011 :S

It's like an "indie" hardware, they must be collided with so many probs which I doubt excluding cost.

It's going to have 32mb - yes, mb - of RAM, and a 300-400MHz ARM CPU in it. Resolution an entirely useful 320x200 but with that amount of RAM and CPU horsepower Java is basically out of the question.

Then, how about java API that has C++ as backend.

...

No myself, that's seems not good.

GCJ could probably get us there these days.

Not sure why I'd want to bother with the pain of GCJ when just biting the bullet and doing C++ or even straight C is going to be the least of several problems coding for the device.
Especially as I have designs on playing with the RasPi too...

Yeah, see where you're going there. Just a shame isn't it.

A little bird whispered in my ear that a certain native JVM compiler company are going to be looking at headless ARM compilers next......

of course it will be.
the console market is tough
when everybody already has a DS or PSP and a phone, and now with 3ds and vita being out, there is just no room for this.
It's going to be a Gizmondo

Also no twitter updates in 228 days and they still wait for funding
dont hold your breath

Yup, I thought it was a cool thought. I'm not going to dev for it anytime soon.  Yawn

there's always the GP2x. it's more expensive, but apparently jamvm runs on it.
