I feel like we are all just twiddling our thumbs as we wait for more news on the WIN 2.

The lack of news is a shame, there should be more hype for a Win2 but with nothing to go on.......

Maybe they are a little bit scared of by it could hurting the Win sales. You see everywhere posts "Should I buy now, or wait for the GPD Win 2". My opinion: if those have not bought it yet, they never will buy it.

I mean we know the form factor and a good idea of the processor, what else is there to know before the things actually made?

Screen size, battery size (and removability), top view of the keyboard and controls , fixed storage and ram.  etc etc

Outside of GPD giving us news, it's still unclear if we are going to get the *mobile* parts of Intel silicon at 10nm.  Still waiting on concrete info, but still looks to be the case.

As for someone asking for Thunderbolt, Intel now gives royalty free licensing for Thunderbolt, so it's not out of the question for it to happen on GPDwin 2.  But really, if they did Thunderbolt, we'd want all the bells and whistles like PCIe 4x connected thunderbolt.  It would be neat as we could connect an eGPU in a docked mode (sort of have the ultimate PC Switch scenario) but I seriously doubt any of this is going to happen.

I'll just continue to wait for news from GPD or Intel at this point.

My 2 cents -

Please replace the dpad with a clicky one, the current one is pretty mushy and terrible. I mean, test Contra on NES if you want a lesson in frustration, GPD.

Also, for the love of all that is holy, please fix the bizarre battery/charging/sleep silliness and the screen/fan issue. My brand new June 5th Win is dead after 2 weeks because of this. Get a good daughter-board like the PSP to handle and regulate charging that many other devices have, or an external battery.

Clicky as in 3DS clicky? That would be absolutely disgusting and would make d-pad heavy games a complete pain in the arse to play.

We got a top view of the keyboard, it's in this thread

This should be the final layout:

I'm not talking about just a keyboard layout, i'm talking about a top view of the keyboard and game controls as a render .  All we have so far is a partial view of this from a low angle

You're implying that they aren't already. The entire dpad depresses giving wrong input as it is in it's current form. Clicky as in tactile switches.

It doesn't need to be clicky, it needs a pivot.
