Panasonic perhaps aren't the first people you'd think of to produce a portable gaming system, but the company is hoping to change your mind with their new The Jungle.  The clamshell console packs in a touchpad, full QWERTY keyboard, high-resolution display and various ports including mini-HDMI and microUSB.

There's also a touchpad and other gaming controls, together with a 3.5mm headphone socket.  No word from Panasonic on potential battery life or what's powering the whole thing, but it's apparently Linux based.

As for the sort of gaming titles you can expect, the only game Panasonic is talking about is a browser-based MMO called Battlestar Galactica Online; that allows you to play as a human or as a Cylon, and "experience space combat, exploration and mission-based gameplay."
