The Digi RetroBoy GBA is either a clone of the K101 hardware (a clone of a clone?) or it is the same hardware. Either way, the important thing to note is that this is not a GBA emulator. It runs GBA games natively through reverse engineered hardware. It is the work of the K-Team in 2011 that attained this feat of engineering, and is what brought us the original Revo K101 and K101+ too.
The Bastardised Revo K101
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.

Some Revo K101+ News
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 …

Revo K101 – A Short Review
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.
Your Revo K101 Is On Its Way, Official Site Is Up
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 …
Revo Is Ready To Roll
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?
