nintendo is going to release a new gba with backlight and 6 buttons nintendo needs some competition and ithink sony can give it to em
Yeah but they haven't managed to get battery power loss down to 10% with the new backlight. So who knows when it will be released
Anyway the next handheld to be released is from Nokia. This beast is called the N-gage and you can read about it here. View a picture of it here. It should be pretty powerful but I hope the pad layout is not like the one in the pic. Too many buttons in the way which is not good for quick gaming.
There was also another handheld being made by phone manufacture Eriksson which you can read about here. It was cancelled in April last year though.
The GP32 is also being released in the UK sometime early next year. It has a few commerical Korean games, mostly RPGs right now. It already has a Snes emulator and lots of ports of Amiga games on it. It can play MP3s (mind you, so can the GBA), Movies and connect to the internet. That and it is only going to cost about £50
Basically, any competition for the GBA is good because Nintendo have had it easy for way too long. 60% of the GBA games so far are complete crap, and competition will make that number go down.
Oh, and before I forget. You should all download Super MOnkey Ball Jr for the GBA. It is so damn good it makes me cry Get it it from one of the latest roms sites that I posted in this very forum.

Microsoft would fail miserably, they don't know the first thing about portable devices, let alone portable gaming devices.
Sony already said they won't touch that end of the market.
Nintendo will always rule the handhelds market, its etched in stone.
As for CD based portables making portable gaming cheaper. Are you out of you're mind? That would make it cost even more. And what would be the use without at least a 64bit portable? Microtechnology is too heat intensive for a 64bit processor in a handheld. (Heck look at laptops, they utilize 32bit architectures and a small but effective cooling solution. A handheld wouldn't be a handheld under these terms).

And yes there is the PSP now and the Tapwave Zodiac and another couple of PDA style ones out too. The handheld market is hotting up again finally. First casualty? The N-gage obviously
