While mobile devices are becoming more and more like a computer, they’re still currently missing quite a few features which restrict us from completely replacing ours with a tablet: full quality word processors, Java integration in the browser, among various other things.

A game console that has a welcoming embrace to mods. The Evo 2 console is expecting to hit the U.S. later in the year. The device will contain a 1.2GHz Samsung chip, 512MB of DDR2 memory and a modded 2.2 Froyo. 3D motion sensors are being contemplated before releasing the SDK into the US in the next couple of weeks.

Designs for the console are still in production. As of right now the image above has the basic concept with very familiar controls.
With open source for game crafting, and hopefully Android market opportunities the Evo 2 console has potential.
