Gameboy format is borderline useless for any emulation that requires shoulder buttons as that absolute clusterfuck of a console shows.
Handhelds:
GPD Win, GPD XD 64gb, Pap KIII-Plus, 3DS XL, DSi XL, GBA SP, GBBC Clone, Gameboy Pocket, PSP Go
PC:

lol, yes you might be right but it sure supports the features requested in this thread. I think it's great that you can connect it to a monitor or TV and also connect mouse, keyboard and other controllers via usb. I own a gcw zero and I love it very much but for all the amiga games like Gobliiins or the great adventures for ScummVM I think it would be great to have the possibility to connect mouse and keyboard to the device. I wouldn't even mind playing these games on the handheld display.

If you look at the Kickstarter campaign section you will see they have updated the button layout following feedback, still not ideal though.

I don't like the gameboy layout, the gameboy advance layout used by GCW-Zero (and many others) is better, less cramped, better shoulder button layout as mentioned. Gameboy SP has a similar layout but at least it's clamshell so it's more portable.

Still, it looks like raspberry-pi-based devices are good, they have the advantage of having a bigger software ecosystem. Is there a non-DIY raspberry-pi handheld with this layout?

No schedule and rocking.

Pcerceui has managed to merge most of his changes upstream last time i heard.
He also said that they are not going to work on that until after the new firmware gets released if i'm not mistaken.
No words however on everything else related to the firmware.
