Hi, and welcome :)

A quote from wikipedia here that answers your question:

The F-200 version of the GP2X hardware replaced the joystick with a directional pad and adds a touchscreen.

I had a faulty F100, I replaced it with an F200 which is in some aspects better, just make sure to replace the official 4.0 firmware with Open2X which is way superior IMO.

Bye, Magic Sam

If I were buying a gp2x right now, I would get the f200. The only downside (that I have heard) is that the joypad is really just 4 unconnected buttons and that it makes pulling off fighting games special moves more difficult because of the difficulty of doing a (1/2) circle. I think they might be very slightly slower as well, but no so much to make a difference.

The dpad on the f200 isnot as bad as people make out. I have no issues with it.
As posted above - Install Open2X!!
