So far it looks like mockups which have been shown around and the timing
seems to be quite tight.

There has been a lot of discussion on the Pyra forum [1], but people see it
not as a competitor.

Because the Pyra is specially optimized for gaming. While the Gemini is like
a Psion 5 successor. It will be a nice device for its purpose as a simple
pocket computer not focussed on gaming.

Another difference is that the Pyra is community made by devoted people like
Openmoko and GTA04. I.e. it can be expected that software support will be
available much longer.

BR,
Nikolaus
