very intersting.. ;) something the elipsis could look that because quiet frankly a handheld based on g3/g4 will be very hard to acomplish..

HHHmmm,maybe the AmigaColdfire group should look into this system...
If it is already working, and running a V4 coldfire...

Erm.. So the best the name-search could come up with was a collision with a popular browser's rendering engine and IBM's PowerPC core for the Gamecube? I feel sorry for anyone using a search engine. :}
I wish the project the best of luck; just had to say it.

After looking at hardware, let me upgrade that "wish them luck" to "I want one I want one I waaant one!" ;)

The least they could have done is picked a name that wasn't already in use,
even if it's an esoteric marketing name...

In reply to Comment 7 (Joe "Floid" Kanowitz):
Don't think so. The ColdFire group seemed more interested in making a CF accellerator board IIRC (note that IIRC!)...

In reply to Comment 8 (_Lennart Fridén):
This isnt the coldfire groop.
But they ColdFire Amiga project aim is to build full A1200 compatible motherboards, with PCI, USB and a 100+Mhz ColdFire CPU..
First they make accelerators to assist them in making a whole board!!
If these are around 500 Australian, ill get me on no questions asked i reckon :)

The ColdFire path is not for me, but nevertheless, do enjoy it! :-)

In reply to Comment 10 (Lennart Fridén):
hehee... There is ironic contradiction in your phrase there ;)
However I won't go any further in discussing what that contradiction is for obvious reasons.
