Why not more system memory? Gapps are every update increasing size, and they can only work on this storage.  ???

I have an older phone that gets full with these, practically lol

(It would be nice to install those in internal memory but app2sd can't help with this)

The GPD-G5A as the option to choose internal or external as your main install location natively with out any
Modification so drop a big card in the SD slot and set you main to external ;D

does the form factor will be the same as GPD-G5?

Because, the GPD-G5A's form factor previously shown was awful (in my opinion of course...)

Probably yes. About the form factor, is different, some people love it, some people hate it. I personally find device very confortable and nice to hold for playing.But i undertsand othr people prefier a Vita knock-off form factor or something like that.

I hope it stay's the same I like it and glad it don't look like a vita lol, I agree the previous version of the G5 looks a bit
Pants.. more like a space ship pmsl

But would love to see a black version of it though ;D

As far as I know, there will be black version I think, including black version of "standard" g5a. I prefer black or dark grey colour too. I hope they remove the Gamepad letters though xD

I don't like the way the G5A looks at all but it is very comfortable to hold, pretty much like an XBox 360 pad with a screen in the middle. I have been playing a lot of GTA Vice City and it feels more like playing it on a console than a handheld, in fact it actually feels much better than playing it on PS2 which is some acheivement for a ?70 console.

It is a bugger ugly console though IMO! If they could make it a bit slimmer without compromising on comfort then it would be even better.

I like them!

"What's that you're playing?"

"It's a Gamepad, now go away."

As fa as I'm concerned, I'm not gonna buy a new handheld until we get 6 face buttons a la megadrive, analog triggers, buttons instead of the toolbar, a better placement for start and select buttons, double micro sd support, less noisy dpad and, last but not least, a GODLY battery life! And I almost forgot, a real life Yoshi! :p

I can forgive everything but Yoshi  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

You can install gapps in sd? I'm amazed. Is this exclusive to some devices or what? I meean, rhe option on my devices to move to sd card isalways greyed out.

IPS screen, 2GB Ram, black colour, no 'GamePad' text, and an improved D-pad (please)...I'd definitely buy one.

I'll give the one I have to my brother :)

@MOFO,

Sorry but we still do not have the ETA on this new device.

What GPD confirmed us is that it will come with IPS screen with 2GB ram!
