Not much in the way of details about the device has been released, despite official images and videos of it making their way onto the Internet. Word is that it'll have a high-resolution screen, in addition to silicon beefy enough to support a modern MMO. Oddly, speculation is pegging the device's native OS as Linux, which creates a problem for those of us who enjoy games like World of Warcraft that don't run natively on that OS and require additional tooling and programs to be able to do so. Wi-Fi or 3G support haven't been confirmed, either.
What is known is in that picture. The Jungle is a clamshell device, presumably a monstrous one at that, with a full QWERTY keyboard, a touch-sensitive d-pad and additional buttons. It looks like it'll have a mini-HDMI port, a headphone jack, and a micro-USB port, too. The device's official website says more information is to come about the buttons specifically is coming in the near future.
== TEASER ==According to 1UP, The Jungle's first-slated game is a browser-based version of Battlestar Galactica Online. No other games support has been announced.
Last night, the device appeared on a new episode of Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, an MTV show about a rich dude who does stupid stuff. Engadget reports that Rob will be making a "jingle" for the device, so look forward to that. Also, check out this first web series for the device. Oh, brother.
