You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. It wasn’t too long ago that
an Android tablet with gaming controls was released every few months (and was supported for just about as long, but we won’t go there). After a while, our
eyes glazed over and we all stopped looking.
And then, nothing. I don’t know why. Good however, comes with the bad. Just like staying away from incognito mode on your browser can heighten the sensation of its eventual relaunch, there is now a curvy new pro
nm queen on the block: the GPD XD. I want it.
Here it is:
Cars, guns, balls! The freedom to choose between them all! That says. It. All. Yeah! What else does a handheld gaming console fan who’s been going dry need to wet his whistle? Those sexy curves, those round little nubs, those colourful buttons just begging for some delicate tweaking ….. oooooohhhhhhhh ….!
But I digress. Here are its specs:
