Nintendo’s Game and Watch (1980)(reminds me of something…)
Entex Adventure Vision (1982)
Nintendo’s Game Boy Pocket (1996), Game Boy Light (1998) and Nintendo’s Game Boy Color still dominated.
Nintendo Game Boy Advance (2001) and the Game Boy Advance SP (2003) was the Game Boy’s evolution into 32-bit. The SP model was front-lit while newer models are back-lit.
Gamepark’s GP32 (2001, Left) was 32-bit, open source (emulators were a selling point) and could play DivX movies and MP3’s but was not front-lit until 2003’s model. Nokia’s N-Gage (2003, centre and right) attempted to seize on the mobile phone craze and mix a game’s console with a mobile phone.
