    Good man!

    Haha, it wouldn't surprise me to see any of those on some random Chinese handheld tbh!

    Nope, but don't drown your great name by surrounding it with mediocre ones else they might miss it ;-)

    I'm actually thinking that using terms like GBA and Gameboy would not be accepted, even though the device plays them. As far as I know, there is nothing wrong with reverse-engineering, but using a copywrited name is.

    Right, I get the impression that they're more interested in a name that promotes the resurgence of a scene than just a variation of the GBA initials or Game Boy Advance name. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's the impression I get when talking with them.

    But then how are people going to know what it plays or what it is when they're scrolling through the stuff? doesn't it say or something that gives a respectful tip of the hat to the original GBA

    You are right, my friend.

    As this new K101 will use the case from Gemei A330, it will looks like a new devices. Thus, we do not want this device" live " under the shadow of the original GBA SP. We prefer you guys can think out some interesting names that really reflect the real meaning of this device. Like Dingoo A320, Dingoo is a very cool name though it is a retro emulator handhelds. We love such name more. Think more and you will got more chance to win the prize.

    We will keep reading your post and make notes for those good names every day. Only the most inspiring one will win. Good luck!

    of all the china chip/dingoo tech devices i've tested (a320, a330, gemei a330) the gemei a330 has the best buttons and case. will you guys be using just the case or are you using the same buttons/d-pad?

    My friend, K101 used the case and the improved buttons and d-pad and should buttons. I think the buttons/d-pad/shoulder buttons are one of the great point on this device.

    Yes, I love the design on Gemei A330 too.

    I entered. If anything I hope I inspired someone else to derive a nice name for it from my list.
