Playdate soon to be available for pre-order

Playdate is familiar, but unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It has a very special black and white screen – not backlit, but super reflective – that looks way more amazing than you’re probably imagining.

It also has a peppy little processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (coming soon), and a surprisingly loud loudspeaker. And when you’re not using it, the screen doesn’t turn off – it becomes a very nice low-power clock! More here.

I really like the design, I like the idea behind it and especially some of the unique quirky features, but will it actually be any good? It is hard to know if this will be brilliant or a mere novelty. I hope it is the former.
