    the GP2X wiz was interesting but much more expensive than the dingoo A320...
    so a new revision already? okay, but... i'm afraid of the price [​IMG]

    Dammit GP2X, will you EVER put a satisfactory d-pad on one of your systems?

    Infact, at a glance this system appears to have fewer buttons than on the Wiz/GP2X F100/200/300.
    Still, I'm a sucker for these devices, I've wanted to love my old GP2X and Wiz but specific flaws like crappy joystick or d-pad, flawed touchscreen, lacking SNES emulation or small size always put me off.

    I'll wait for reviews before I dare jump into this again.

    They tried on the GP2X Wiz, I could get Symphony of the Night to run about 20 FPS with no sound.
    The Caanoo appears to have the exact same processor as the Wiz, so don't bet on this system being a portable PSX.

    Looks promising. Wondering what will be possible to emulate with this one.

    Indeed looks very interesting, any idea how this pairs up against the Dingoo?

    Read a lot about this "Pandora" thingy. Although it's expensive, it seems to be better...still interested how all this "self-made" consoles will work out, would be nice to have kind of a "perfect" system for all the emulation.

    Should be lower than the Wiz...

    The OLED of the Wiz was extremely expensive.

    My bet: 150$, maybe lower.

    If support is like the wiz, i'll pass this one.

    Gamepark brings handhelds out almost as fast as Nintendo with there DS variants

    That OLED screen is freaking BEAUTIFUL, especially when so small.
    But I would gladly pay less for a standard LCD screen.

    I think they were trying to compensate for the poor screen on the GP2X F100, ya know?

    Damn, this looks sexy... The d-pad looks like it'll be horrible to use though.

    Every one talks about PSone emu on these devices.
    Just wait for the OpenPandora then, if thats what you want. It can do it, and do it well. ^.^
    Besides, I even view my A320 like a microGBA. Sure, I can get 10fps in GT1 psone emu, but is it really a enjoyable way to playit. I don't think it is.

    Too bad that a Pandora costs $330, while this nice thing shouldn't cost more than $160 [​IMG]

    What the fuck? Are you serious?
    I hope his ass was fired for gross negligence and lack of due care for YOUR package.

    I got me Wiz for $120. A new Dingoo will set you back $99. That extra $20 was well spent. The problem I see with with this is the homebrew scene for the Wiz is just getting warmed up. They should have at least given people a reason to upgrade and gone with a good possessor upgrade or perfect PSX emulation and the D pad does look like crap. I'll shell out the $$$ for a pandora if it has perfect N64 and PSX emulation.

    Looks like an interesting piece of hardware to me, if it doesn't cost too much and the community (or official, for that matter) support is decent, I might buy it.

    I actually think the D-pad looks quite nice [​IMG]

    This looks more like an upgrade to the Wiz, not a successor. I just hope that the new analogue pad and the g-sensor don't mean that my beloved Wiz is now worthless as far as new releases are concerned.
