RED JADE

Ericsson's super handheld flops even before it gets out the door

Ericsson invested $10 million in the devleopment of this console and was all ready to go with it until a shitty economy forced them to cut 22,000 jobs, and sadly the Red Jade as well. Was to have some pretty cool capabilities, such as basic PDA-like functions, "wireless connectivity" (like Bluetooth or perhaps mobile phone-like cpabilities,) Dvix movies, a Polygon graphics engine on par with the PS1, etc. Software was to be downloaded from secure servers, not clear if the machine took carts, flash carts, or other removable media. Sounds pretty close to a GP32, or a Nokia N-Gage but with more functions.
