What is the deal with these companies and d-pads? Also, the specs aren't that impressive. I think I'm done with these umber cheap handhelds, I'll just buy something powerful like the Pandora from now on.

EDIT: There are a lot of people that buy these under powered cheap handhelds and when the next one comes out, a small increment in power, maybe enough to emulate 'that one console' that the last one could barely emulate with frame drops and no sound, they upgrade. This doesn't make any sense to me, why not save the money that you would spend on handhelds like this for a while and get something powerful that is able to do more than just play games?

You do realize companies like this have you on a treadmill of upgrading don't you? I'm sure if this company wanted to they could release something a lot more powerful for just a few cents more but then you wouldn't buy the one that comes out in a few months would you?
