Chinese device maker JXD‘s Android tablets aren’t like those from most companies. They’re designed for playing video games, feature gamepad buttons built into the case, and some take their cues from handheld gaming consoles like the PlayStation Portable.
Archos may have the GamePad 7 inch tablet, but JXD has a whole family of inexpensive Android gaming devices — and it looks like we could see two more this summer.
Word on the street is that the JXD S5800 gaming handheld with a 5 inch display and Android-based operating system will be available around August.
The S5800 will reportedly come in two models:
- JXD S5800 A with a dual-core processor
- JXD S5800 B with a quad-core CPU
The higher-priced quad core model may also have an IPS display for wide viewing angles and 2GB of RAM. It’s not clear that the A model will have either of those features.
