  1. What would be the handheld to get out of the yinlips and jxd models? I like the larger screen size and the more buttons the better so I can play any system. Also being able to run stock android on it would be amazing.

    1. IMHO, the model to get is the Yinlips YDPG19 – of those two manufactures.

      Now, I think it may be worth holding off until Archos brings their Gamepad to market by the end of the month. It will have 2 analog sliders – not just one – and I have a lot more faith that Archos’ “Analog sticks” will actually be analog. You can read more about the Archos here – http://obscurehandhelds.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/the-archos-gamepad-more-tablet-gaming-on-the-move/

      More info has come to light since then, and the price isn’t just under $250 – it’s actually promised to be under €130 – or roughly $170…. Still more than the Yinlips or JXD – but faster CPU, dual actual analogs… there’s a lot to love.

      Otherwise, I suggest the Yinlips.

  2. Thanks for the welcome!

    Timothy, it may, but probably more focused on gaming handhelds, since that is what this site is about.

    1. Feel free if you like. If it’s an electronic gadget, it’s roughly handheld in size and it’s non-mainstream then it has a home here πŸ™‚

      1. And it can run Frotz, Science, and a few other emulators, Free Hero’s too

      2. I ment Scummvm damn auto correct

  3. Welcome Chad
    Does this mean we’ll be getting even more articles on the most obscure handhelds like the Zipit Z2 running Openwrt?

    1. Well – I just ordered one, so we will see. πŸ˜€

    2. Just so you know. I got the ZipIt in today.
