Default Need Manufacturing Advice

I am trying to find a way to get my product manufactured. It will be a small handheld, electronic game device. It will accept a cartridge and play whatever program is on that cartridge. I have the dimensions and what I want it to look like and features I would like to include however, my problem is I cannot seem to find a manufacturing company that builds such a device.

In a situation like this would I have to have more than one manufacturer to build this, or can someone point me in the direction of one that does it all?

Any advice would be great.

Steve

EDIT: I should note that I am not trying to build something as advances as a DS for instance, this is would be a very basic player used for educational games.

Where have you been looking?

Honestly, it's going to be hard (but not impossible) to find something like that being built stateside. And it depends on how much you are willing (or able) to spend.

Lots of pretty good quality, inexpensive electronic devices are coming in from Asia - China, Taiwan, Vietnam, etc. - these days. You might try seeing if there are any manufacturers there who make something similar to what you want. My company works with several vendors there who have all been responsive to modifying their products to suit our specifications, as long as we've been willing to commit to reasonable quantity buying.
