I was kindly sent one of these a couple of weeks ago, though I wasn’t asked to review it and I have no retailer or other beneficiary to promote in this post – just so you know!
The original K1 hardware is apparently out of production now, though there are rumours on Baidu of a re-release with some changes to the original design. So it was with a mix of excitement and curiousity that I clicked the listing on Fasttech (update Feb 2019 – the listing has changed to that of a … Read more
You might have gotten the same promo email this morning that I did, but if not then here’s the news. The white K101+ is being phased out, and the crystal black K101+ is now available for pre-order. The price remains at $69.99 and the shop are receiving them in batches from the factory. If you’re … Read more
A couple of years ago the K-Team (the guys behind the hardware inside the K1 and Revo K101) were making some decent progress on a reverse engineered Nintendo DS solution. You’ve probably seen the video of their development board in action, but if not here it is.

I’ve no idea how many of these they are making, but they are said to be available to purchase “soon”. If you’re interested, keep an … Read more

It took exactly 1 week for my Revo K101 to travel the 6000 miles to my parents house in England. That’s an average speed of 36 miles per hour, in case you wondered. I’m used to waiting 4+ weeks at this time of year, so it was with a childish grin on my face that I hurriedly set off to their house to collect my new toy.
If you’re one of the 30 or so people that pre-ordered the Revo K101 and have been waiting patiently for the last few months, you can let out that sigh of relief now. The guys at K1GBASP now have 80 units in stock, and they’ll be testing and packaging up everybody’s handhelds this weekend for … Read more
I just found this posted by MaxZhou88 over on the Baidu forums. I know it seems to be taking rather a long time, but it looks like it’s finally ready to go. I’d say the box art turned out pretty well, what do you think?
