Sounds pretty beefy!


Thanks to ThePhawx

Edit: amended title, the Win 3 is a separate device.

I assumed that was a joke, given how big all the prototypes of the smachz were up until recently, but the stuff they were showing off at that recent trade show was a little more svelte, so maybe my joke sensor is a bit off.

Pretty sure the Win 3 is still going to be a separate thing, so I think title should be changed.

Pyra is in the same boat as Smach Z in terms of development progress, and Smach Z is pretty shady.

It will be a real downfall if PGS gets released before Pyra :D

Batteries that work? Competition sure is heating up.

I mean, even ED can't claim batteries that work until he actually ships them. I have my fingers crossed though.

We're using the same company as before, and most Pandora batteries from 2013 (some even from 2011) still work fine :D

GPD have changed the battery supplier starting with the MicroPC. They finally got access to a company in china known for quality batteries.
That's good to know and hopefully true. I know many of my customers refuse to buy any more GPD products from me as they had that problem with the GPD Win 1 and GPD Pocket... and batteries aren't available anymore.
It's also an issue for distributors - I had to fully refund quite a lot of units as I couldn't return them to a working state again due to the lack of replacement batteries :(

My original Pandora battery is still working fine and I got that along with my Pandora back in May 2010. I did purchase a new battery a while back but haven't needed to switch over to it yet.

This is something we will have to find out.
We do not know yet.
True. While I'm trying my best, I can only do as much as the companies did offer, as I simply haven't the funds to switch companies in worst case to make sure we have the best quality.
And the GPD Win 2 is of top-notch quality (except for the batteries).
