@Jo I'm pretty sure the Vtech trademark was originally planned for an 80s transforming robot toyline and then reused for something else. No proof but you can't convince me otherwise
@plsburydoughboy You're thinking of the Veritech fighter from Robotech/Macross, aren't you?
@Jo the big question tho- can it run doom
@FuchsiaShock Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if someone tried.
@Jo someone always tries
@FuchsiaShock @Jo ages ago i had a PDA, the Helio, that VTech made; it was intended as a PalmPilot competitor, but it had a 75MHz MIPS processor (a Toshiba SoC) in it and could be prodded into running Linux
...and almost certainly doom, though on a 160x160 greyscale screen it probably wouldn't have been too exciting ;-)
sadly it was a victim of the mass clearout i had last time i moved house
