Gizmondo USA Inc. subsidiary of Jacksonville, Florida-based Tiger Telematics Inc has confirmed the US version of the Gizmondo handheld multi-entertainment device, launching in North America on 22nd October, will include an upgraded battery doubling the operational time compared to the standard power pack.

The new handheld, which possesses an incredible cache of functions (next-gen games, DVD-quality movies, awesome MP3 playback, a razor-sharp digital camera, picture and text messaging, optional email, and GPS), will retail at a very affordable $229 (SRP).

Steve Carroll, CTO for Gizmondo, says: "This upgraded power pack will enable the user to enjoy up to six hours of continuous gaming, 150 hours on standby, and similarly increased operation times for the movie, music, and GPS functions."
