    Hey all,

    Well I received my samples of the iTouch DS today. After playing around with them for a few hours I had to share my experiences with you [​IMG]. So follow the link below to the first review of the iTouch DS:

    Ah the eternal what card is best for me / I have card XY should I buy this one [​IMG]. I personally have no experience with the AK2 however if you would be on the original AK I would advise switching. As far as I know the AK2 performs quite well so I wouldn't switch. This cart also seems more aimed at people who liked the R4/M3DS simply range. A simply, no nonsense cart. Depending on the price it could be a nice addition for people too though. Or for your little brother to be able to play too.

    Great review, I must praise them on the ifav system, it is one feature I always wanted in a flashcart. I don't think I will be getting one though, since I have just ordered a DSTT as a replacement for my R4, would be interesting to see how much it goes on Dealextreme anyway.

    Nice review. I've got my sample and I'm in the process of taking some pics and doing an impressions write-up.

    Although a slight spoiler:

    Thanks for the PCB pics, Scorpei. The board looks very cheap to produce.

    Hmm. I still have no intentions of switching from my SCDS1 SDHC. I'll go with a Acekard R.P.G if it somehow breaks.. But I'll still keep this in my mind for cheap recommendations.

    A few things that are interesting to note:
    The firmware includes a file: gba_info.ini
    Also iTouch.ini is interesting as includes this in the file: /M3REAL00.NDS
    One of the firmware files also has (opened it with a hex editor) "made with PAlib" at the end of the file (one of the .eng files).
    And last there is an info.bin file that has "0288 - King Kong(E).nds" in it......

    How do you get review copies? I have done some reviews and I haven't gotten any review copies...

    I recon apart from the initial production costs, the card probably costs around $1 to produce, as with most slot 1 flash cards.
    The card reader that comes with it, probably costs about the same to make as the itouch itself.

    You generally have to own a site.

    Although being able to write good reviews is somewhat crucial as well.
