In a press conference streamed today, AYANEO, the manufacturers of the first AMD-based handheld gaming PC, announced that it is expanding its line of devices. It previously teased the AYANEO AIR which will bear an OLED screen, a compact form factor and a more affordable price point targeted mostly for light and indie PC gaming.

In addition to the AYANEO AIR, the company also revealed two unannounced lines of devices: the AYANEO Slide and the AYANEO 2. The AYANEO Slide packs an integrated keyboard under the sliding screen akin the GPD Win 3. The AYANEO 2 will be an AMD 6800U-based device and will feature a bezel-less screen. Like the AIR and NEXT series, these two additions look like they will also integrate handgrips in the hardware design.

With these new additions, AYANEO now has 4 lines of handheld gaming PCs which the company categorises as Entry Level (AYANEO AIR), Flagship Level (AYANEO, AYANEO 2 and Slide Series) and Top Level (AYANEO NEXT). These categories also represent different price ranges but the specifics have not been revealed at this time. This include launch window and specs. However, the press conference aired did include actual models of the some of the announced devices, so we might hear more soon.

In addition to the hardware, AYANEO also announced that a version of its device's launcher, AYA Space Lite, will become available for other devices as well.

With more lines of handheld gaming PCs at different price ranges, it offers a promising outlook for gamers looking to get such a device of their own. And with more competitors like Valve and recently Anbernic entering the market, it seems like we won't be lacking when it comes to options.

I was all on board but then I saw it was preloaded with spyware as the non-operating system. :ha:

It's great to see more competition but it needs to be running either a Ubuntu or Arch based GNU+Linux OS. Less background junk draining the battery, clogging startup times, hogging the CPU & RAM, obtrusive update procedures, more customizability.

I mean, why aren't they just creating their own desktop environment themes & artwork then tweaking the DE and install base to what they think would benefit their audience the most?


Also, I do want to mention that hardware keyboards excite me. Mechanical or otherwise. ;)
