I'm absolutely for built-in Wi-Fi, because watching youtube and playing multiplayer games would be awesome.
Sorry guys for not caring about dingoonity lately. It was nice to be with you, and maybe I'll come back, but not now...

Surely bluetooth would make sense for a device this small and cheap, you could still access the internet by tethering to your PC using an adapter that costs < $2  and it'd be much cheaper to put a bluetooth chip in the machine. Also it'd have the added advantage of being low power and tethering to your phone.
Plus it could be used for peripherals like mouse/keyboard.

i hope DDU is ignoring most of your requests otherwise project creep will kill it before it's even prototyped.

You asked for it here are some pictures of the PCB front and back of our new 4755 Console

Thanks for those, so the analog/nub is below the d pad.

It definitely has the PSP form factor so it is going to be big (well big/small ;-) ), I guess the screen really will be 4" :-)

Probably not important now but out of idle curiosity, how long does the 1200 mAh battery in the pic last?

I hope the actual buttons will NOT line up with what's printed on the PCB or we'll have to adjust our muscle memory -- it should follow the classic order of YX BA instead of AB XY.

I hope you decide against a psp knockoff case. Maybe something more along the lines of this:

But with a proper D-pad.

Good point, I would have never noticed this :o

I also dislike the idea of another PSP clone. I'm kinda in love with the A330 design, because it's original and niceeee. But something looking like the lower half of NDSi could be also cool.

yeah, the board looks suspiciously like it's going inside a psp case. please don't do that.

Looks like the case will be similar to the PSP.
Anyway, what are those black big things on the back of it?

Hey, the PCB this looks like its made for this Handheld -> http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/364893698-Free-shipping-PMP-4-3-inch-screen-8GB-MP3-MP4-MP5-Game-Player-RMVB-Camera-radio-wholesalers.html

Everything fits 100%. Camera, LEDs, AnalogNub, Select, Start, and in-outs.

But the D-Pad looks like crap and i dont like PSP design :-(.

It does too! Well spotted.

I agree and don't really like the design of the one that you've linked to.

Had to register here to say this to Dingoo Digital USA:

- Scrap the camera. Probably everyone who'll get this handheld already has a cellphone with camera, plus we'll want it mainly for gaming and videos;
- Try to avoid using the case of a PSP. Just look at the reaction of everyone here, nobody is liking the idea. Sure, we'll buy it, but not without thinking constantly "How I wish it didn't look like a PSP ripoff".

By the way, could it use a battery that lasts for around 7-8+ hours at full charge?

Only for internet access and lets face it, this isn't an internet device. Having to be near a bluetooth equipped PC (or a phone) is just the same as having to be near a wifi access point anyway. Sure it isn't quite as good but it makes more sense for the price-point and it would allow two consoles to link up easily.
Wifi would put the price much higher and eat up battery.

Agreed, I like the look of that one, minus the dpad. PLEASE don't let it look like yet another PSP ripoff, there's already way too many of these things flooding the market.

Any information about the tv-out resolution?
I think that the camera is nice , but should not be considered as a non-disposable feature. If you remove it to put more memory (to not raise the price) would be great ;D.

By the way, don't make the lcd exposed because its hard to clean.

Good luck on this project. The people seems not excited about the gemei a330, so take advantage on this.   ;)

Some designs look like the PMP-3000 / Neo Slim 3000.
And there is a micro-controller as the P5-5. (SOP8: left side of pcbback) 

It seems there is no hold-switch.  The hold-switch is important.
Coupling capacitors are only 22uF . 100uF is desired.
I think that another part of the design is good.
