JXD Releases New Retro Gaming Android Tablet - S5110B

JXD-Releases-New-Retro-Gaming-Android-Tablet-S5110BNot to be confused with the S5110, JXD have just released a brand new Android gaming handheld known as the S5110B. This latest addition to their already growing catalogue of unofficial retro gaming handhelds is proving to be a nice little investment for emulation on the go - at least if videos of the Android device in action are to be believed.

Over the last few years, the Android operating system has seen a plethora of emulators made available, all of which have spawned off a series of tablet devices with gaming controls. While none of these handhelds can legally ship with the likes of Super Mario 64 and Tekken 3, they're very much being sold as pocket powerhouses capable of emulating these titles. Furthermore to their admiration for other gaming products, each one of these devices seems to bear a resemblance to existing hardware out there - in this case, the PS Vita.

The JXD S5110B features very similar specifications to their earlier 7" release the JXD S7300B, one that has already proved to be an important player in the emulation world. The dual core processor on-board features plenty of power to run older 8-bit and 16-bit titles, while providing enough juice run the likes of PlayStation 1 titles Raycrisis and Parasite Eve II.

But enough talk, let's see some action. What exactly will you be getting for $99 then?

Kinda sorry I backed the GCW-ZERO now... this thing leaves it for dead and it's cheaper as well! :(

Looks good - maybe time to upgrade from my trusty Caanoo which struggles with PSX roms...

Pointless when compared with a PSP...

I got an Android thingy at the start of the year and really wish I didn't. Who CHARGES MONEY for emulators? And the menu bar on the bottom that never disappears, and the constant updating, and the altogether unreliable nature of it all. Nah, I'll stick with the PSP thanks.

"Who CHARGES MONEY for emulators?" -> Some are free, others not, the rest have two versions with different features, you should take a look before jumping to -wrong- conclussions

"And the menu bar on the bottom that never disappears" -> false, usually it depends on the application/game running, but there are applications (free & paid versions again) that hide it for you.

"and the constant updating" -> This is configurable, for me it's obvious, you know very little about android devices, simply they are not what you expected, which is -your- fault.

part 2:

only to keep things clear:
.- I can -easily- develop whatever for Android devices, doing this for PSP needs custom firmware.
.- Android devices usually have HDMI, my PSP doesn't.
.- Android devices are -at least- two times more powerful, but also, they have an OS requiring this extra power (and more...).
.- Android devices PSP-style (JXD & Yinlips) have twice the resolution
.- PSP quality is the only thing that is unachievable for this king of Android devices.
.- Android devices usually targets retrogaming, PSP doesn't.

part 3: -and last one- ;)
I posted 'king', I wanted to write 'kind'... :)

Comparing PSP vs Android it's pointless, different markets, different targets, different timmings, if you bought an Android device with PSP features in mind, you were wrong, made a risky bet, and lose.

Usually, to emulate you need about 20 times the original device power (to run all smoothly), luckily android reachs two or three times PSP power (both run on ARM processors), so PSP emulation sometimes should work 'fine', while others won't work at all.
