    GPD-XP Android-powered modular handheld revealed

    But this Arm device with physical gaming controls won't have calling or SMS features.

    Nice idea, although not the best solution and I suspect it will be quite expensive.

    I'd have preferred a solution that enabled both ends to be detached (and no hole punch camera).

    Errrmmmmm...... okay.
    Not sure I see a need or use for this particular thing, myself. I'll stick with the mini Windows gaming PC type things they do.

    Yeah that sort of idea but executed slightly better if you get me. The GDP-XP having one fixed connector just seems a little daft, especially if you want to use it as a phone.

    I do like all this kind of stuff as its interesting..

    Whats the target market though? There are SO many devices trying to emulate the success of the switch, or "improve" mobile gaming - but they all (including Valve) fail to realise that the hardware is not what made the switch a success - it's the developer support & ecosystem with games made for and optimised for that particular hardware.

    Most android games are designed for touch, and can optionally work with a controller. Just like most PC games are design for a PC, not for a portable underpowered machine with awkward controls.

    Fun, yes, but mass market? No I don't really believe it. Could function nicely as a machine for xCloud though if priced accordingly.

    Hole punch camera on a gaming device? Yuk! What the hell were they thinking. There's tonnes of bezel

    Considering the SoC and cheap off-the-shelf screen we should see this sub £200, which isn't bad for a portable gaming thingy
