A while ago I reviewed the Window N50, a 5 inch Android portable for casual browsing and media consumption on the go. Pocketable Android players never really took off though, possibly because I’m just about the only person interested in them.
For some reason, JXD has decided to release one of its own and it looks like the cheapest yet. The JXD S18 has a 4.3″ resistive screen with a 480×272 resolution (the same as the Yinlips G16 and a few other 4.3″ gaming handhelds) and it’s powered by a 1Ghz AmLogic 8726, a Mali400 and 512MB of RAM. The specs are pretty much the bare minimum to run Android 4.0, but for its intended use (movie and music playing on the go) it will probably suffice. The unit also has WIFI, expandable storage and dual headphone outputs.
It’s not a bad looking thing either in my opinion. The cheapest I’ve found it for is a measly $41.93 shipped, from Everbuying.com.
