So, I went searching for information on the OneMix2s KOI that @EvilDragon mentioned in a GPD thread and sells in his store. Then I saw mention of a OneMix3 in the works for June. Bigger screen by a bit. Not quite pocket friendly. Backlit keyboard with greater key spacing. Thinner. It took some digging, but I finally found a good keyboard picture of it.



One of the unofficial spec sheets I saw stated that it has an NVME SSD. Supposedly they are out being beta tested now with potential release in June.

No idea if this is real - but there is a fair amount of info starting to appear about it.

Well, the OneMix2s and KOI already have an NVME SSD in there :)
A lot faster than the eMMC inside the Pocket 2.

The OneMix3 will also have an additional M.2 slot which is compatible with M.2 LTE modems, so you can also use it for mobile internet :D

Are you being sarcastic?
Kind of, it does look a bit like a pyra. If the pyra had a cousin weirder than itself. If you saw the inside of it you would know what i mean... I hope lol. I'm not great with written words because dyslexia.

Well, UMPCs have been around forever now.

But I think you're getting confused with the GPD Win 1 (and 2). Both GPD Wins were inspired by Open Pandora and Pyra.

Also, I think you're posting in the wrong thread. You're meant to post in the one below.

I was just trying to say it looks more like it overall than those other models besides the lack of game controls. Somebody will get that instead and an controller meaning less demand for the prya. But I'll post in the other thread i didn't find it earlier when i looked. The app isn't working like it should.

True, it's all competition, but it's significantly less portable than the Pyra and doesn't have game controls. As others have said, the Win devices are a closer match than this. And the big difference for me is the lack of community and the lack of a manufacturer who continues to support devices he can even when they've been out of production for a few years.

Those are good points. I do like how evildragon and his team still support the pandora. even though the development as had a lot of issues for both projects which is not his fault but you can trust his word that it will happen except when he says 2months... lol. Also the quality, I've never seen anyone care so much that everything works over how much they can make off of someone. My only wish was those companys he delt with were better at business with him and had better support from more people.

You can still repair a C64 from 1982 and get almost all components and even new motherboards. That kind of support is not available for the Pandora.

Some of the issues:

- The connector on the motherboard for the LCD cable broke off from one of my Pandora's, no motherboard replacement available and manufacturer was not willing (or able) to repair it anymore.
- LCD cables are out of production and not on stock anymore
- If your nubs fail, you're out of luck
- No LCD screens anymore available.
- Even one easy question, ´what screws should I buy for my Pandora' have been unanswered.
- ED has a huge repair backlog so it can takes ages before you receive a repaired unit.

Saying the Pandora still gets great customer support seems like an overstatement.
Still love my Pandora's and wish ED the best. I know his shop is not his main job and he works his socks off, you cannot compare it to a huge company.
Have bought several Pandora's and a GPD Pocket from him and will probably buy a Pyra as well but not before I have a solid understanding of the quality control, long term support / EOL of main parts / ease of maintaining and repairing it yourself.

True, but did Commodore offer that support even before they went bust? And can yet get a new motherboard for your European C116 anywhere?

The Pandora is an old device now, and stocks of parts have dwindled. If the Pyra had come out when it was originally meant to be out, we probably wouldn't care about our old Pandora any more, but that didn't happen yet.

C64 was just an example of an older device still being repaired by enthusiasts or companies.
Pandora was still being sold by ED in 2016 so if your LCD or cable died in 2018 that is basically less than 2 years of support. I understand the reasons for that but still, something similar might also happen with the Pyra.
We will have to see if the Pyra will make Pandora's obsolete.

When was that?
Shortly after EvilDragon took pre-orders. I distinctly recall him saying that he had no intention of funding the development with pre-order money, only the production, and as such wouldn't take pre-orders until he was ready so we wouldn't get these two year gaps of development.
And then real life happens and nothing ever goes how it's supposed to and we end up with an unfortunate two year gap between pre-order and production.

Somehow my attempt to make a Onemix3 thread to avoid confusion in the GPD threads has ended up with GPD stuff in it.

Here's hopes that @EvilDragon stocks the OneMix3 when it is released. The OneMix2s KOI that ED has in stock is pretty cool - looks & function, but the 3 has more of an interest to me. I occasionally need a Win10 computer to handle some of the random stuff that doesn't work in Linux, and that might be just the ticket for a dual boot multi-use portable for me.
