    You didn't expect this, I guess.

    I just hope ED is OK, and his shop is still able to do business. But yeah, some news (however small) would certainly be most welcome at this juncture :) My Speccy next is keeping me occupied at the moment......but I get bored of things easily :eek:

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    Hey ED - hope you're OK :) Just wondering if the cases turned up last week, and if so, are they up to scratch?! I'm interested in any tidbits of updated news you are willing and able to share (as I'm sure are others) :D Still waiting "patiently" for my pre-pre-order! Gren

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    Bit late to the party, but I'd just like to re-iterate other's views here by saying that the painted/coated case does indeed look like "da bomb". And so do the keymats. Feels like everything is coming together nicely.....but possibly not in time for Chrimbo 2019. But hopefully not long...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    My preference: 1 - Grey 2 - Black 3 - Blue 4 - Any other colour except clear! Not bothered about it being painted. This isn't a bling, hipster "Apple" device. Function over form, please :)

    Even more to see here (now)

    Thanks for the update ED :)

    Even more to see here (now)

    ED, can you please provide an update on what is going on with the cases in Greece, the prototypes and our Pyras? I'm trying to stay positive here, but it feels likes ages since the last official update. Are things actually moving forwards? Sorry to chase, but I think the community has been...

    Playdate - that monochrome handheld with a crank

    On first inspection, can't say I'm excited at all about this... However, a very large article (and correspondingly flashy cover) is in the latest copy of Edge that has just popped through my letterbox. Will have a read and see if my interest is piqued :D

    F(x) Technology Android phone with a slide-out keyboard

    Yeah, sorry - could have worded that better. I meant from a personal usage perspective. I've no doubt that the Gemini (and many other larger devices), are perfectly capable of performing phone call duties. Let me explain:- For me a phone is primarily a comms device, for voice calls...

    F(x) Technology Android phone with a slide-out keyboard

    Yeah, that makes sense. They're nice pieces of kit, but I wouldn't consider them phone replacements. It would be nice to actually go into a store and get a feel for some of these unique devices. I guess internet buying and niche devices has scuppered the hands-on experience.....have to make...

    F(x) Technology Android phone with a slide-out keyboard

    I've been following this very closely; I really want a HWKB phone again. I massively enjoyed my Xperia Pro, until apps stopped working in the miniscule 512MB RAM on Legaxy Xperia, but that was a good few years ago now. Don't like the form factor of the Key2, and my Priv was a broken bag of...

    What have you bought recently?

    32" 4K Acer monitor - E322QK. Hot UK deals link (and my mini-review) - Also the price has dropped from £280- to £250- since I bought it :mad: An absolute steal.

    Backlit GBA etc

    I've not played too much yet - I realised last week that my rechargeable AAs were not in great shape (last used probably circa 2006!!) So I ordered a new Energiser 1 hour charger with 4 2300mAh AA batteries, and that came yesterday. I definitely prefer the ergonomics to the GBA SP, although...

    What have you bought recently?

    My GBA turned up today - that's pretty quick (didn't pay extra for Special Delivery) :) It has very nice packaging (see pics), and shows signs of passion for these refurb consoles from the guys at retrosix. The console is incredibly clean, and if you didn't know any better would guess it was...

    What have you bought recently?

    That's great news! Mine also shipped today via Royal Mail; should be here in a couple of days. Although I don't think £2- for postage will stretch to a chopper delivery by Prince William......

    What have you bought recently?

    No worries. Will update on screen, button and audio quality when it turns up in a few days :) (I went for the most expensive option with all the upgrades! :$:$ )

    What have you bought recently?

    A refurb modern GBA classic with backlight:- Never did get on with the GBA SP clamshell shape, and I've got small hands! Hope the upgraded screen compares well with my AGS-101. Should give my GBA everdrive a good workout :cool:

    From Greece with love.

    ED - Can I be cheeky and ask, if possible, that you (or someone) videos a prototype Pyra being assembled? For all Craig's faults, I used to really enjoy his Pandora videos, and it made the whole experience more complete somehow! Totally understand if this isn't possible or practical. I know...
