EVO Smart Console is Linux-based; available for pre-order

Envizions is finally moving forward with their EVO Smart Console. This gaming platform is Linux-based and offers up quite a few impressive features for those looking for an out of the ordinary gaming console option.

Final specs have been released and they include a 2.4GHz Athlon 64x2 5600 processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, an ATI HD 3200 graphics card and a 120GB HDD. The console will run on Mirrors, a modified version of Fedora that's capable of quick-booting. This can be updated to Mirrors Evolution X.

Plus, there's a cloud service that provides users access to Amiga games and Akimbo videos. Games are expected to cost $20 online or in SD card form. You can pre-order the console now and betas can expect to receive their version starting on April 10. The final version will be available in June for about $380.
