For those who are waiting for better gaming console other than the PSP and all there is good news for all as the Chinese based company JinXing Digital’s id about to introduce one named JXD S5110 , this is console that is based on Android latest version 4.0 ( Ice Cream Sandwich )
This model uses a processor ARM Cortex A9 Amlogic M3 with 400 ARM Mali 3D video industry. The amounts to 512 MB internal memory and the space available for its contents is 4 or 8 GB depending on model chosen. Except, of course ability to expand these values through use of traditional microSDHC cards to be inserted into slot. JXD S5110 offers a multitouch input system with 3 points of contact and has a gravity sensor that allows you to play different games.
Among other features, it also mentions presence of a WiFi 802.11b/g/n module to connect to the internet and have fun with your friends in thrilling online gaming sessions. The console, which measures 195.5 x 86.3 x 17.7 mm, also offers a VGA camera on the rear and one HDMI output through which you can convey any audio / video in high definition televisions to external.
JXD S5110 provides a control system very similar to that which characterizes the current controller of the console. On left is a multi-directional pad along with a speaker for audio playback while on right you can see a programmable keypad that allows you to perform actions or whatever depending on type of game that you are having .
Probably one of the most interesting aspects of this device is to support emulation of titles for Nintendo 64, GameBoy Advance and Sega MegaDrive which would allow, the more nostalgic, take a dip in emotions of past games. In addition, through Game Center, you can download the titles that most prefer to start playing right away. JXD S5110, a device identical in functionality to JXD S7100(developed specifically for portable gaming. This is a model equipped with Android OS 2.2 Froyo and equipped with special controls, located on sides ) , but equipped with a 5 inch capacitive touchscreen display, and especially by use of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as a software base.
There will be the available in two version bases on size and It 's also possible to choose two pieces of internal storage 4GB or 8GB, which can however be extended by micro SD. The input system of touch screen supports multitouch up to three points of contact. The presence of a gravity sensor also allows a dual mode of control in the various games. Do not miss WiFi module, a camera and a HDMI output to connect to an external monitor or TV. The measurements are 195.5 x 86.3 x 17.7 mm. I actually like the 195 mm wide, 86.6 mm high and 17 mm thick the device features a 5 "screen capacitive touch 3 points 800 x 480. The total weight of the tablet is 249 grams. The definition is quite small but sufficient to use very much oriented to shelf: The M3 Processor Amlogic Cortex A9 single core running at 1GHz and a graphics chipset supported by Mali 400 should provide a strong performance on the shelf as well equipped as 2D 3D. The 512 MB of RAM seems a little light and it will be jostling with programs launched in background but presence of Android Ice Cream Sandwich should facilitate this task.
But I really doubt that JXD seeking ways to achieve the performance of a tablet or other Tegra 3 quad core. The brand is a rather casual market and equal fans. The rest is ok with wireless N, webcam 0.3 megapixel rear, a card reader that will assist the MicroSDHC 4GB of onboard storage and a USB 2.0 port. The battery is a Li-po not detailed charge via an AC adapter or USB. It has HDMI output and With HDMI this small console can also prove to be a good jukebox and video and audio will play on big screen.
All in all its looks good, concept is good. The price is yet to be know but the such console is trading around the 140 $ . I guess with a longer generation processor, such as Cortex-A15 ARM hard macro, and a more original design, we will have a compelling game support.
