    The g6 lite final retail version is available in the chinese market.
    As you can see, the left one is trial version and the right one is final product.

    It looks a tad smaller and closer to the GBA cover that comes with the Lite to me.

    The final looks a lot nicer. I'm buying one when they arrive in Canada!

    Anyone check out the post about the new G6 Lite's on YYJoys blog?
    http://www.yyjoy.com/yy/?p=992

    GTranslate:
    Looks like production is still slow, and the pre-orders are still taking a long time to fulfill. More importantly, looks like the missing plates are going to be "offered" soon (next week? I'll believe it when I see it) along with a "replacement" service for those that want a different color...? Looks like how it works is going to depends on the dealers involved...

    The g6 lite (www.yyjoy.com) got is only the case replaced.

    www.hacken.com got the final retailer version.

    some people in HK forum complain they got the g6 lite that only have new box.( like the one yyjoy.com got)

    I wonder if the english loader will be able to be installed in the final retail version. If so, then Imma order mine as soon as it becomes available.

    I definitely got the Chinese trial version, because I got the sticker on my box, and my G6 Lite looks exactly like the left G6 Lite in the first picture.

    I wonder if you can just buy the final retail cases because the build quality on the trial is OK, but could be better...

    Yeah, the plastic on the final version is a little transparent and looks cheap.

    So uhh what do the extra 2 holes do on the side of the final one?

    Please don't tell me they're speed holes.

    Maybe that was the aim of the final version? We've seen plenty of "see through" materials.

    What we're looking at is just asthetic. We haven't really examine the material used yet? Perhaps the final version uses a tougher plastic than the trial version and sports a semi transparent case to show off the interior? Maybe the designers didn't want to go full blown and make it full transparent to separate themselves from the competitor? Who knows.

    So what you are saying is that the final one is cheaper....in other words we're getting less for the same price?

    They save on plastic...they use cheaper transparent plastic....and who knows whatever they changed on the inside.

    I'm guess i'm glad I'm getting a normal one...

    What do you mean you're getting a normal one? The normal one is the final one.
