    If this is a good cart, I hope they manage to branch to more than just a Chinese based reseller. Some carts look good, but they only manage to sell at a place like Deal Extreme.

    While the case is nice (packaging can really make the product), it doesn't sound like anything new. Thats not a BAD thing though. I'm curious about pricing though... and how their dev/support team works.

    What i'm waiting for, though, is the next major jump in flash carts. I have no idea what, or HOW, they'd do it... but all slot-1's do pretty much the same thing any more.

    Here's to the future! [​IMG]

    oooh. could be worth a try.
    sounds much better than the R4, N5, G6, letter-number combination

    * Interactive touch OS (Hopefully it's fully touch-based with some controls for people who don't want to pull out the stylus)
    * Supports unpatched ROMs (Fully clean(cyclo) or just auto-patched(r4)?)
    * High quality snap lock Micro SD slot (The same as the R4 and Cyclos Micro SD slots?)
    * Quality SDHC TF/Micro SD reader included (One of these for realz?)
    * Many slot 2 expansions supported (O.o Hope they mean built in support and not just got download GBA EXPLoader)
    * Multiple language user interface (Seems to be getting popular)

    After thinking about it... I'm not sure if they'll pull this off... We'll just have to wait and see. Their website doesn't seem to be in really bad English and there isn't an Asian language version of their site... Who knows what might happen.

    I will only buy a flash cart that's new in the market if it has one feature that I am really looking forward to see:
    • Can play games that can only be played with slot-2 solutions
    Now that's the future!

    Nice naming... even made the packaging to look KGB I.D.-esque

    @tsimehC the site is .cn but they say they are from Europe. Not that it really matters.

    Also good to know there are others up on flashcarts in that part of the world darkglobe80.

    This sounds somewhat promising. If they add a few more features to their card I'll consider getting it.

    I doubt it can play ALL homebrew.

    Looks alright though.

    Just what we need, ANOTHER Slot 1 card.

    Unless it compares with CycloDS, it's useless [​IMG]

    It doesn't look that special. Not many stand-out features

    Heh, Looks neat. It needs a laser pointer function, that would be a totally unique feature [​IMG] j/k

    you can't tell untill someone reviews it properly, but it seems this card's main feature is reliability.
