My first impressions are very positive.

It feels solid.

WIFI is very good. Better than any other previous console of the kind for me.

Controls mechanically look very good too. I'm no dpad fetichist :) They will need some fixes in the kernel for enhanced performance and ranges.

About the "feel cheap" comments, in my opinion mainly come from the color and the "GamePad" writing under the screen. This is a small style detail.

Shape wise the device is very nice. I think it would be rather easy to respray the case. I still think that this device on a dark red, olive drab or tan would look awesome.

The only reason I won't buy one of these is the shitty screen resolution.  If I were only using emulators, then I could deal, but I want to play high end android games on it that would utilize the higher resolutions, so this isn't going to be for me.

My case is just the contrary, for emus I prefer lower resolutions. Emus like the PSP or DC looks nicer in lower resoluton devices. Android games are a bit crappy anyway even in HD. (I am not fan of Android games, still didn't find an Android game that I like to play for more than 10 minutes, except console ports) The more resolution the less performance too. But obviously for HD graphics you need a 720p.

Bear in mind it is 5 inch. Maybe I have a bit of presbyopia but everything looks sharp.

More resolution is nicer but you also need the muscle to move it.

I guess I should start one day to make some video tutorials for the app as well.

I have a normal camera and made an attempt to record something some weeks ago. Because I tried to avoid any edition I wanted to record all in one take and it was impossible.

Sooner or later I say something wrong. :D

Skelton, you'll be tweaking the firmware for this device in the future, once you get your sample? Is that the only device you'll get for the time being?

I will, For g5a and G7. No idea about other devices. If a manufacturer want my collaboration they need to collaborate too xD

I think I can do gyro sensor simulation in this console too. With the new per profile force screen orientation feature it is going to be really cool for games temple run style.
