JXD S7100: a 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet with gaming controls

New, 30 comments

Chinese manufacturer JXD has released an Android 2.2-powered gaming tablet with a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and hardware gaming controls.


Shenzhen manufacturer JXD has taken time away from ripping off well-known consoles to bring us a 7-inch Android-powered gaming tablet, complete with a D-Pad and face buttons. Following in the footsteps of the Yinlips YDPG 18, the JXD S7100 has a 800 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, an ARM Cortex A9 CPU and Mail 400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and HDMI-out. Since the tablet is being marketed as a device to play old school arcade games, the failure to add shoulder buttons is a pretty big oversight, but at least you'll have a front (0.3-megapixel) and rear (2.0-megapixel) camera to capture all of the fun you're having . A video on the product’s site shows a user playing both touchscreen games and classic ROMs, as well as downloading both apps and games to the device from JXD’s storefront. We know what you really want is the PS Vita, but how does a colossal Xperia Play with no phone for $139.99 sound instead?
