Consolized NGP?
Recently, Racketboy has published an interview with Dion Dakis, in which he states that SNK was planning a consolized version of the Neo Geo Pocket. He also mentions that there are some pictures of a prototype out there.

This is the first time I've heard about this, so I was wondering if anyone in here knows what he's talking about. The idea of a consolized NGP is so ridiculous it shouldn't be true, but who knows?
This is what he's on about:

Although I though it was generally agreed that this was development hardware, and not a home unit prototype.

You can definitely see outputs on the rear for composite video and audio, S-Video, and what appear to be BNC connectors for R,G,B, and Sync. The screen is just above the controller port. Although there's no connection for linking it to a development PC for debugging, which you'd sort of expect if it was for development Huh
NeoTurfMasta has one of those. He put pics on his site before.

Oh, we talked about this one in the NGP -> TV thread, but it's clearly something meant to aid the developer, not as a console. Aside from the outputs, it has an integrated LCD screen, which doesn't make any sense in a console that's supposed to be hooked up to a TV.

I thought he meant something else. When he mentioned it, I got an image of some tiny unit in my head, instead of this. A consolized NGP would probably be the size of a PC Engine. But if that's the unit he meant, then there is no consolized NGP that wasn't for dev use.
