They really could just opt for making it slide all the way up. I hope what's being shown is only for style, and not actually locked in place. I never seen a 3 way D-Pad before, lol! As for the bottom screen, while cool to see, and agree that it's probably not needed. Most portable users are well accustomed to using one screen for everything, even DS emulation.
The new slogan trips me out, "NOW IT'S REAL"
So, it wasn't real before, but then they saw how much money GPD made with their portable PC and now they see potential, lol!
However, I really hope this device does release and prove all doubters (including myself) wrong.
