Looks like 2022 is the year of the Windows handheld. The floodgates have opened, and now dozens of new Windows-based gaming handhelds are crawling out of the woodwork. Here's another one: the AOKZOE A1 (or 6800U, it's not clear yet). Pronounced "Ay Okay Zoe", the team is a daughter company of the One Netbook company, which already has a range of UMPCS and Windows handhelds under their belt, so they are not completely new to the game.

What's new to the game is the Ryzen 7 6800m which should give this handheld some extra kick, and a leg up on the (current) competition.

The rest of the specs:

Production model will support Windows 11 and SteamOS.
A prototype has already made its way to tech reviewers, so here's a hands-on / first look video by ETA Prime:



Not too shabby.

Preorders are expected to start this month, with units shipping this September.

Price is not yet known, but I expect it to be spicy.

Not too sure about that dpad but hopefully it ranges in the 200-300 range nice to see more competitors in the game and hopefully will cause others to lower price production at some point

AYN Loki Zero will cost 199 Trumps, and, for this low of price people will be glad to go low spec, that's the route I believe those handheld market will be focused on.

That said, run cyberpunk at 60fps on a handheld... man... it is indeed something. With this power, people will don't even care about the crap d-pad, as they will not be using it anyway (3D gaming machine there, you know...)

Kickstarter kicks off today, I still don't know the price but I expect 4 digits.

Here's a more detailed overview:


tl;dr: it's a beast, but an expensive one.

    It's weird people in their mid 50s-20s seems to like social media more than TikTok and YouTube

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward

    I guess they learned a valuable lesson, don't assume that real roads are a playground
