AYN "Loki" To Be Cheapest Windows Handheld

 Update:  https://www.retrokezins.com/2022/05/ayn-loki-prices-revealed.html It looks like AYN plans to compete with the Steam Deck and AYANEO Air with their own Windows handheld and plan to price it below the competition.  They've had issues meeting demand with the 3 different models of the Odin so I'm not sure if we should expect this to be readily available but we'll have to see.  Via:  https://twitter.com/RetroGameCorps/status/1529341654238302208

AYANEO NEXT Looks Sharp (Handheld PC)

It looks like the new AYANEO NEXT models will be happening soon. They certainly look sharp and well designed. I wasn't  aware that it was this close to becoming a thing until Retro Game Corps tweeted about it: https://twitter.com/RetroGameCorps/status/1478589182498914306 It appears there will be 3 different models (Base, NEXT Advance & NEXT Pro) of the AYANEO NEXT, and will all be viable alternatives for people who don't get a Steam Deck , although these are drastically more expensive. The base model runs $1265 on Indiegogo pre-order and increases to $1315 retail. The "Pro" model is $1465 on pre-order with a retail price of $1565. Personally, I'm sticking with the more capable Steam Deck at these prices.  Judging by the specs below,  these should be able to handle most handheld PC gaming desires but at a very high cost (price well above value I think)... https://next.ayaneo.com/
