    It had been in the air for a while, it is now confirmed: factories have stopped producing the Dingoo A320. They are nowhere to be found on the electronic markets and stock is getting low in most shops (ShopTemp has ran out of stock recently).
    Now a question remain: is the shortage only temporary? Are they going to resume production? We will attempt to answer this question by asking our insiders in the Dingoo team, as soon as we can reach them.
    Stay tuned for more details!


    Edit 1: apparently A330 consoles are not concerned by this. They've stopped manufacturing the A320 only.
    Edit 2: an insider confirmed that it was only a temporary shortage and stock issues have been resolved. The A320 still lives!

    Nice, meaning it's possible the A320s that exist nowadays are gonna be worth more money since they're discontinued. Let's hope Dingoo Digital follows up with a new console, or at least fixes the many imperfections with the A330.

    So, isn't there the A330, and the "true" A330 or something?
    It might be a case of out with the old and in with the new,

    Where's your proof?

    Still on sale at dealextreme, dingoo-digital-usa.com

    Let me guess, you guys are just trying to kill dingoo sales, just like you killed the dingoo forum!

    Why buy the 320 when you can buy the superior 330? The A330 is not even that much more expensive than the A320.

    So get the A330 if you want one.

    a330 is inferior even if released after and it costs more

    the controls are worse
    the case is meant to be more flimsy and looks like a psp knock off

    while the bonus is the extra ram and controller

    320>>>330

    Unfortunately Dingoo Tech's dodgy hacked A330 firmware doesn't even use the extra 32 MB RAM.

    Where are your reading and algebra skills?

    Low stock =/= no stock.

    well, the second edit infirmed the news:
    it's still being produced, there was a temporary shortage (similar to what happened to the M3i a while ago).
    of course companies that purchased a lot of stock like the DX and others still have it in stock! [​IMG] shoptemp just got stock too.
    and no quartercast I think it would've had the opposite effect, everyone would have rushed to buy one before its sold out everywhere [​IMG] that was the reaction on IRC anyway

    Maybe you're right, maybe you're wrong. Chinese PMPs tend to have pretty flakey support to begin with, if the device itself is being discontinued, why would you rush to buy one? Chances are the next Dingoo incarnation is round the corner.

    Away from civilization.
    Are you just naturally rude or just in a bad mood?
    You asked the damn question, you got an answer.

    People flock for discontinued things depending on the reason the item was discontinued.
    People are pretty flaky not just Chinese PMPs. People.

    Costello posted there was low stock, you reacted as if he said there was no stock.
