Many a moon ago, a company named Envisions had an idea, an idea of a Linux based game console. The EVO saw a release, shipped even but most, including myself, never picked up a box. Now Envisions is back with a new console, the EVO 2. The console will run a modified version of Android 2.2 and be powered by a 1.2GHZ Samsung processor. It will also include a game controller and a tv remote. The company is churning out developer units now which are free with an annual $149 software fee.
Envisions is planning to include future additions that major consoles already have – additions like a motion sensor and “EVO Points” ala Microsoft points. The tokens will allow users to purchase Android games for the system. Rumors point to a price of approximately $249 for the fall release and you can pre order one for $15 here.
What do you geeks think? Is it going to release and if so, will it be a contender? Or will it be the new 3DO? Sound off in the comments. Hit the jump for the full press release.
