Both Banggood and AliExpress are now accepting preorders for the next batch, which would be available on 25th December (!). Already 99 preordered on Banggood, 36 on AliExpress, better to hurry if anyone would like one.

 I have put it at the top of my birthday's wishlist, maybe I'll be a GDP Win user too at the end of March  Stuff shipped from China to Europe take anyway a long time, I had parcels bought on AliExpress which took 2 months to arrive.

The GPD Win featured on HotUkDeals and got a lot of attention.

I've also noticed there's going to be a non-gamer variant called the GPD Pocket.

shame that the rumoured price is going to be quite high.

The GPD Pocket price will likely be somewhere in the $500 USD range....

Considering it is a small size, custom design, made in relatively low volume, the price seems very reasonable to me.

And glad that this device will have linux support from the get go....

GeekBuying seem to sell the GPD at the cheapest price so far, according to UltrabookReview:

http://www.geekbuying.com/item/GPD-Win-5-5...ack-367872.html

340$ with a free carry case (which is a must, I bought a PDAir one together with my SL-C1000, I haven't regretted my decision once), plus it seems to offer free international shipping. Sounds like a bargain, at least compared to Banggood (360$) and AliExpress (426$ ??). From the description it seems to be the v2 model, although they are still listing the CPU as a Z8700, but they might have forgotten to update the specs list.

I saw it on GearBest which offered a discount on top if you installed and used their mobile app!

It gives me hope that the GPD pocket will go on sale, or come down to a more reasonable price. I'm also hoping that the US$:GB£ will improve giving my £ more spending power.

What about buying it from the Indiegogo campaign? There's a 200$ discount for those who preorder it from there.

the GPD Win is now mostly down to the price of the Indiegogo campaign that kicked it off, and they're on a revised version
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gpd-win-...onsole-laptop#/

I'm reluctant to be an early adopter, I've been burned a few times, so I'd rather wait 5 months for a slightly revised version that fixes initial problems as well as drop in price.

it's interesting that the GPD Win only hot US$0.72M, but the GPD Pocket has hit US$1.8M already.

Indiegogo appears to have a  handheld coming, see: Gemini PDA Android and Linux Dual Boot Folks doing it appear to have a link to some involved with Psion back in the day...
