Been awhile. :)

After noticing that slider concept for the XD2(which intrigues me more than the Win 2), I thought of how a basic minimal physical keyboard could be added.



Not expecting miracles, but if spacing permits and interest prevails, something like this version 3:



L3 and R3 somewhere.

I asked GPD (on Facebook) and they said the have no interest in visiting the slider design. hopefully this changes, we will have to see. I wouldn't get my hopes up though.

Whether they ever release an XD2 and whether or not they use the slider design, I don't know if they would consider putting in a keyboard. I would LOVE for them to put in a keyboard, rather than shoving a blank space in our faces again, but they didn't seem too keen on doing it before.

The slider concept must of been too complicated for them to make(and one of the reasons there aren't many/any on the market by anyone else). Maybe another day.

I think the keyboard addition will only make the price go up, after all, GPD xd's sole purpose is gaming... frankly, if they increase the screen size to 6 inches, add clickable sticks and use a more powerful SOC, things will be better. many reviewers stated performance wise XD+ is not that much of an upgrade. they can look for SOC like SD 660,821 or the new MTK line-up to pack a punch, as PS2 emulation is now getting done on android.

Qualcomm is pretty dickish to smaller companies and products they don't see as viable for their SoCs, so I really don't think we'll ever see a Snapdragon in an XD-type device.

Maybe, but it could be that DS clone clamshells are the only accepted adopted style in this niche presently. I've always wanted a pocketable tablet with a screen that slides to reveal a physical keyboard, so I don't have to rely on screen tapping input, and then slides a bit more showing some "hidden" game controls. :)
