that's a great find. I hope Simone is on this forum!

He is, he goes by the nick "evilsocket", though he has not logged in since 2008:

I added a comment to his blog post with a link to the GPD forums here, and he responded. Maybe he'll come by and say hello!

Got mine a couple weeks ago from GPD and did a review of it, really impressed by it so far. Currently using it with GPD's supplied Ubuntu kernel and will be doing a second review of that side of things

also, does it suspend and resume well when running linux?

clarification about battery life. in the review it says the 12 hours isn't achievable, but 8 or 9 is with light use. Is that with screen set to mid brightness and constantly on, or letting the screen blank regularly?

Hi and welcome here!

Thanks for your review. I have read about the problems with the wifi, it was suspected that it was due to the metal encasing, good to hear that it actually was a software issue.

Looking forward for your Ubuntu review.
