It was originally showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010 but never arrived in N. America. However, it's retail price was around US$150. GP2X Caanoo isn't considered as a direct rival of Nintendo DS or PSP but more as an open source alternative. Of course it was friendly to indie developers. It's also the last console of the series. After this console GamePark Holdings focused only on software development.
