With the 128 gb GPD XD coming in July it looks like this will be coming after the GPD WIN now? Has anybody heard when this might be released?
Where did you get that from?
What I mentioned IS now even called the Osborne effect, because of that reason:
I've never heard anything about populated PCBs, and that also wouldn't make much sense, as they had issues selling their remaining Osborne 1 systems...
It's in the wiki that you linkedI've never heard anything about populated PCBs, and that also wouldn't make much sense, as they had issues selling their remaining Osborne 1 systems...
Yes, but since you brought it up: as I mentioned in whichever thread, it is a concern of mine as well. Other than those of us here that are vocally supportive of the Pyra over the Win, how big is this niche? We can't count lurkers here or the people that are waiting for a prototype or actual release of the Win to jump on that bandwagon. Just consider the number of preorders for both so far. Honestly, I would back the Pyra even without game controls and cellular module, because it is a Linux palmtop. Those two extras make it pretty irresistible for me, but I think that some others only want a pocket sized computer with keyboard. Win will probably get most of those in Japan and those that care more about price or Windows in the rest of the world (although the current numbers seem really small). Pyra is probably going to get those that want Linux, more freedom, long term support, upgrades/hackability, mobile data (and possibly calls and messages), or a thought out keyboard with backlight. Are there really only around 1500 of us altogether left?It's actually that last part that has me worried here because there's already several forum posts contrasting the Pyra with the GPD Win, but that's a topic for the other post
From someone who just spoke with a GPD member, it seems the XD2 is targeted for release in Q1 2017 (they will begin working on it next month). It will use the RK3399 SOC and Android 6.0 (Marshmellow)
I presume there will be another crowdfunding for it.
The RK3399 is a hexa-core processor. It has two ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores. It also has Mali-T864 graphics, supports dual-channel memory and Gigabit Ethernet connections. It features ARMv8, 64-bit architecture. It is also 4k capable
