Although I'm going with the Moto Mod, this device still intrigues me. I'd like to see how it pans out. Here is an article from a show done in Japan. It even explains the meaning behind the name of the device. If not fluent in Katakana, or Kanji, Google translate required.

Isn't anyone put off by the fact that​ this thing might be lacking L2 or R2 or start or select buttons?

I maid that comment a while ago. Not really designed for emulation.

The R2/L2 Start Select missing wouldn't be enough to deter me from buying.
I carry a 8BitDo Zero on my key chain with me everywhere and it works great for most games. It doesn't have a ton of buttons but I find when I want to do some serious gaming I am generally using my laptop anyway. This would have all those and then some thanks to the analog sticks. I can live with that for sure!

I would mostly use it for Android gaming. I get a crap ton of games through HumbleBundle. I have an XD but the layout isn't great for touch only games.

Not really, although it does hinder shooters, and lots of emulation since controllers have had 4 shoulder buttons since the PSOne. The omission of Start and Select was more of a hindrance honestly. With Snail, I just wish they would support more bands of service with their devices. There's so many LTE bands out there, but the device only supports 8 of them? I'm quite sure the Mediatek chip can handle more than that.

I think this will be like the Matrimax iPlay 7, GPD XD 2, etc. In Devices that have promise but never materialize. Even the W3D never had wide release.

The matrimax iplay was released and the gpd xd 2 is in progress, but won't be available until 2018, since gpd is more focused in gpd win 2, which give more sales to them.

I know the matrimax was released, but good luck finding it. Unless you know places that I don't. I know it is outdated tech at this point but it still looks cool. It can go in my drawer with my psp go, ps vita and other devices I only play for a few minutes every couple months.

Probably wasn't sold very much and was discontinued. The company didn't do much advertising, and together with the price and some bugs like bad screen refresh in hz probably made that it wasn't a success, so I suppose the company discontinued quickly. Same destiny that will happen with jxd s192k most probably

If the jxd s192 price drops below $200 I'll take a flyer, but I doubt that will ever happen. These devices price themselves out all the time.
