It's a little preemptive to think they're gonna ship them right away, lol. They may just be receiving them the 10th, or they may just be added to processing. They sell tons of stuff so the XD is probably at the back of the shipping warehouse.

Sorry but we still do not restock this unit. But it is very soon as the factory is working on assembling it. Thanks for your patience.

I FREAKING TOLD YOU!  No way are they shipping this out on the 10th.  We'll be lucky to get it shipped by the END OF AUGUST.

as i know, the manufacturer was delayed the release, because was solving some issues with the devices (software related), and the estimated time for releasing the device is (most probably) at the end of August

this is what i hear from GPD.

Huh? Wasn?t it a mold issue? And willgoo said it was almost going to be shipped out... geekbuying also told me they would get it on the 10th or 15th...

...

What is going on exactly? :-/

I contacted GPD (I think) and they responded with an iphone screenshot of some webpage all in chinese saying its coming out the 13th of august. According to a chinese friend who translated it for me.

True, japanstudies let me read some of those characters. It says 13th of august for black 16 and for (i assume, different kanji?) blue 32 gb

My GPD Q9 has been in their factory for repair for the last 4 weeks. They must be pretty busy fixing the XD first batch.

They seem to give other stuff  a lower priority right now...  ???

:-(  cant you ask them to replace it with a XD for just the price difference? It looks to be better :3

Glad my trusty q9 is still working then, true i have had it for just under 4 months, but i game on it for 4-6 hours/day, from emulators to android, watch my anime via it on the television, read entire manga series on it, use it for browsing, facebook, mail, messenger, study book reading, music, basically as a laptop for avg. 9-10 hours x day( god bless summer break!) then i also take it with me to all the otaku hangouts/events, friends, cosplay meets, etc. I g to about three times per week, to use it in the train :-) so it has been on long journeys in a backpack dozens of times. I think the battery must have already been trough over a 100 full charge cycles.

I also smashed it into thr wood floor once, screen first.

Yet it holds up perfextly well, i am really happy and impressed with it! And after dozens of hours of arcade fighting games, shooters, bullethells and platformers o the snes and such, i can say that so does the dpad. Felt flimsy at first, but is actually sturdy as hell - i play street fighter, kof etd quite often and quite intensively on it. I seriously wish more consoles used this design...

... That probably does not make you feel any better tough :-( i just mean to say (given noone else reported theirs broke yet without dropping itmfirst) there is not a general issue with build quality, which makes me hopefull for the xd :-)

Well, the header says "预售", which means "pre-order"

The parts you have circled...the crucial word is "? which can be

- to issue; to shoot; to distribute
- to depart
- to become; to get into a certain state; to develop

Hence it can mean, to depart from the company, to release etc.

Whatever it is, its just 2/3 days away :)

Yup! Technically not kanji, but hanzi. IIRC, the character for "Blue" in Japanese Kanji differs from Chinese Hanzi.

Yeah kuroi, and iro (black/color) are the same, but the blue kanji/hanzi (same characters/word anyway XD) is different...

But be happy you never had to learn classical japanese!

Anyway guess this means they will be sent out shortly after the 13th?

I'd rather someone update us when they get a shipping notification, and it tracks.  I ordered something from GearBest (not a gaming tablet) on the 3rd, got a shipping notification 35 hours ago, and it still hasn't hit the post office. :-(
