I agree that 'gamebox' is too generic; but in all honesty I am not at all concerned with the devices name...nor the aesthetics.

For me, the look, feel and name of the console isn't an issue.
Seconded.

This thing is going to disappear into my entertainment center so I don't really care how it looks or what kind of plastic it uses as long as it isn't absurdly out of place (if they make it bright pink I might have a problem...)

My main concern is the power of the system being up to par and the functionality of the interface for daily use or stability. If it crashes a lot or has major bugs with operation, I'd much rather those get fixed.

True, once it's out of the box and hooked up you won't be paying much attention to the console itself, it'll just be a lump of plastic sitting next to your TV doing cool stuff. But keep in mind we are informed consumers, familiar with GPD and what they're making. I was trying to consider how GPD would reach the uninformed consumer, make their device stand out from the crowds of other Android TV gameboxes listed on Aliexpress etc. I'm sure many consumers' eyes glaze over at the thought of comparing spec sheets of competing products, a unique name and a cute mascot can go a long way for making an impression on the average consumer's mind.

I was wondering about the price cut for testers. I found other same rkchip devices for about 60 dollars. From this point of view it doesn't seem that great deal.. I mean, if full price is around 100$.

Here's one: http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Q7-TV-BOX-RK3188-Bluetooth-v4-0-Android-4-2-External-Wifi-Antenna-Ethernet-Port-with-2-4GHZ-wireless-Air-Mouse--Black-324259.html

Same chip, different rom and interface (no gamepad). Will this justify gamebox's final price of ~100$? (Concerning firmware quality and having a gamepad)

I would like to be part of the testing. Please message me with more details or if you need any details from me.

Great to see community involvement from device manufacturers.

Wow...this thread went quiet very quickly.
I think what is needed to reinvigorate it is a demo video showing emulator performance. :)

The gamepad looks great. Is it a render or a picture of the final product?

Will it support vibration?

Wow...the controller looks fantastic!

The headphone jack is a hugely impressive addition.

Headphone jack in the controller = well thought! Good idea to use the pad to plug stuff.

I totally agree.

I use this feature on my WiiU all the time. I'm amazed that this hasn't caught on as a standard console feature.

I must admit , I have no interest at all for a RK3188 console .   If you launch a RK3288 console running Android TV later on, then yep there would be interest. Otherwise Ill be looking at one of the Android TV consoles with a Tegra K1 that are planned later this year from the US. Or perhaps even an Ouya 2 if it has a Tegra K1.
