It's called ''Jungle'' lol and it's designed mainly for MMO gaming. lol

Engadget said:
Apparently Panasonic has been working itself into a frenzy over a new handheld video game console designed solely around the concept of taking MMORPGs with you everywhere you go -- like you weren't already wasting too much of your life. The makers of the ill-fated 3DO are returning to the gaming world with a portable system dubbed "The Jungle." The clamshell device will allegedly sport a super high-resolution display, features a full QWERTY keyboard along with what looks like a touch sensitive d-pad and button arrangement, and may run atop a custom Linux build. The Jungle will also apparently sport a mini HDMI port, a micro USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. To our eyes, the system looks a little on the clunky side, with a definite air of something out of Nokia's N-Gage line -- not a good thing for a 2010 device. Alongside the system itself, Panasonic will launch a Battlestar Galactica title for the device, and a web show called Online Underground.

We're digging up more details right now, but the company (actually an offshoot of Panasonic called Panasonic Cloud Entertainment) has already set up shop with a site and a few teaser videos. Check out the mysterious new handheld in another pic and some videos after the break (including a look at the Battlestar Galactica title), and stay tuned as we unearth the full story on the Jungle.

a WoW edition will soon follow the reference design and it will sell 2 million units just like the $25 downloadable steeds for no reason other than the fact that they can be bought.

"Dude, what's wrong, don't you know how to pull?"
"What?"
"This is a raid, what the hell are you doing?"
"Calm down man, it's not my fault, the wife went into labor, I'm in the waiting room using the Jungle - this thing is hard to navigate with!"

Perhaps the funniest thing I've looked at today! However, there's a definite case of irony if this thing actually takes off and supports WoW...

Portable MMO gaming... See those keys? Oh dear god this thing is not gonna work. Reason?

When you are trying to move in a game you put your left hand on the w key, and keep it there when you turn, right? Have fun doing that while the keys are next to each other. They will REALLY have to mod the key map to make this work.
