During my usual Sunday morning perusal of the China web stores I noticed that one of my favourite shops is now shipping the GPD XD, and what’s more they have the cheapest price I’ve seen for the 32GB model in both Blue and Black. Gearbest are now shipping the 32GB model for $141.09. Click the […]
Not a particularly informative video unfortunately, but there are a couple of things to take from this. Most notably, it looks like GPD have implemented their own custom Android skin here. It looks very similar to the UI used on their Mars Gamebox. Also, this thing looks beautiful in blue! We already know that the hinge locks […]

The GPD G5A is my third Android handheld after a Yinlips YDPG16, and a JXD S7300 that I bought for my brother. I’ve always fancied a 5 inch machine but until the G5A they have all been stunted in some way, usually with a less powerful processor than their 7 inch brothers. I ordered […]
