Nintendo GameBoy Advance - switch and connectors Nintendo GameBoy Advance - right & left shoulder buttons. I like the shape and contour to these buttons. Adding them was the first time Nintendo had strayed from the d-pad and A & B controls. They fit well with the small size of the GBA and feel great.

In early 2003, Nintendo introduced a new form-factor for the handheld, known as the Game Boy Advance SP. This version of the GBA featured a clamshell design which protects the screen. This style was adopted across subsequent GameBoy releases. It still strikes me strange that Sony never went this route with either the PSP or Vita.
