    This machine is actually called a dingoo a320, it was unimaginatively titled “pocket retro game emulator” by the fools at thinkgeek to avoid competition.
    You can buy it from from dealextreme, chinavision, gbax and a number of other online retailers for a cheaper or similar price.

    Thanks, flatmush. I added a link to Chinavasion. The Dealextreme website must be down.
