They’re coming thick and fast now! PowKiddy are the latest brand to hop on the hype train with their re-imagining of HardKernel’s Odroid-Go Advance. The upcoming PowKiddy RGB10 is yet another OGA clone due to be released in the coming weeks. It bears a striking resemblance to the Q90 released earlier this year, but of course this time it’ll be powered by RockChip’s RK3326.
Hot on the heels of the ZPG Pro announcement, here comes news of another machine due soon. The RG351 is rumoured to be another OGA clone, probably using a similar shell as the RG350. Someone on the Baidu forums posted a Chinese language version of the below image. It gives us a little insight in to what else might be in the works from the Anbernic camp. The image is fairly self explanatory, but I’ve translated it to English never the less.
I know I’m late to the party with this one, but it would be a shame to not review the RG350M. Some of the recent reviews on this site haven’t been what you would call glowing, and it’s rare that you come across a handheld quite as good as this. So to prove I’m not just an old stick in the mud who likes to whinge, have a read of some nice things I have to say in the Anbernic RG350M review.
Out of nowhere, the PowKiddy V90 has popped up on AliExpress today. Rumour has it that the PowKiddy V90 is the same hardware as the original PocketGo, but made to fit inside a clamshell reminiscent of the GBA SP.
On the face of it the Q400 has a lot of things going for it. It was always going to be overshadowed somewhat by the more powerful RK2020, but judged on its own merit it’s quite an intriguing little machine. Unfortunately it hasn’t panned out well for the Q400 yet. I haven’t written it off yet though, there may be hope. Read on for the Supbor Q400 review.
It’s difficult to know where to begin the RK2020 review. The moral high ground regarding cloned hardware is probably not it. It’d be easy to dismiss the RK2020 as a lazy copycat device, attempting to cash in on the good work of HardKernel. Whilst it’s true that the RK2020 wouldn’t exist without the OGA, this hobby usually treads a legal grey area one way or another. There is no proprietary hardware inside the Odroid-Go Advance, so whilst it might be cheeky to build 100% compatible hardware, given the success of the OGA it’s hardly a surprise to see.
In one of the strangest moves from a gaming company I have ever seen, Sega have decided to celebrate their 60th anniversary by releasing a collection of ludicrously small Game Gear Micro handhelds.
The original ZPG was a DIY handheld that used the guts of a cell phone for its mainboard. It was mostly the work of Lao Zhang, he made use of Vita controls and the motherboard of a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact to create the device. The ZPG was released in very small batches to the Chinese market, and was almost impossible for Westerners to buy. It’s always been rumoured that the ZPG was leading up to something else, and that rumour has just been substantiated. Over on the Chinese forums God of light and darkness (cool name) is posting short teaser videos pertaining to a ZPG Pro. Let’s have a look at the ZPG Pro rumours and speculation.
It’s been a long time since that first batch of Odroid-Go Advance’s started shipping out back in January. The devices quickly sold out and many people have been waiting months for HardKernel to announce fresh stock. Well, the wait is over as HardKernel releases the revised Odroid-Go Advance version 1.1. Read on to see what’s changed.
