Here are some videos that I found on Gemei's forum and other sites. To make the things more easily I uploaded these videos to my YouTube account.

Ooh, thanks for the videos.

TV-out seems to be identical to A320, i.e. it runs slow. Which is strange as the Gemei A330 is supposed to have a considerably faster CPU. I bet you it can play games via TV-out at full speed however they are still using old A320 software which is driving the CPU at 336MHz in TV-out mode (or whatever the stock A320 clock is).

I don't think the Gemei A330 is going to differ much from the A320. 

alright, who's going to be placing bets on whether it's any good?  ;D

If the Gemei A330 turns out to be what I think it will be, which is a slightly improved, re-dressed Dingoo A320 (better shoulder buttons, a nice looking case and hopefully still nice d-pad & buttons) with a faster CPU, identical software & updated frimware, then I will be happy.

For what system is that Kingdom Hearts game? GBA, Nintendo DS or Playstation 2?

I would speculate GBA. It's very unlikely the Gemei A330 has emus for DS or PS2.

Well I know that game doesn't run on the Dingoo or Wiz so maybe that's a good sign?

the hardware is completely different to that of the a320. the software is not interchangeable, it is running completely different software.

Tbh yes, cheap and hackable the dingoo hit the nail almost on the head, hoping this will be at least half decent (but I'm not getting my hopes up)

Hi everyone,

We have had more news from the manufacturer and I will have a release spec version in my hands withing about a week - after this we can really update you with specs etc.

Obviously the product will have a full write-up and specs sheet on the site, Chinavasion.com, as well.

Until then I've got a few more specs that the manufacturer faxed over:

TV Output: AV output

Support Games: GBA, GB / GBC, FC, SFC, MD, NEO, CPS1, CPS2, MANE devices such as 8-32 bit analog-like game, or upgrade to 32 or more simulator.

Support for two or more people online to battle

Wireless controller features: Support

Text features: support for TXT, PDF, HTML, CHM format

support for e-book reading function of TTS voices;

support FONTS vector fonts, support for changing the background color to support bookmarking, support for smart chapter break; support listening the music and reading e-book at the same time.

Photo: Support JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG and other image browsing

Recording: Support

OTG: Support

Built-in Speaker

We are also looking into the 'black and/or white' situation.

Our thanks to everyone for being patient and your helpful and informative posts.

Quartercast is right, we should be able to release it around this kind of time, but we need to do our own QC testing, write-up and pictures first.

We will keep you updated at every step of the way.
