IPega Announce Yet Another Android Handheld

iPega are better known for simple gadgets, bluetooth speakers, waterproof phone cases and just recently a bluetooth controller for smartphones. But it looks as though they’ve got bigger fish to fry these days, having recently shown off a prototype handheld at HKTDC. There’s not a lot to report as yet, no mention of it on their website, and only a brief mention of a Quad Core SoC – but if you fancy it, have a gander at the pics and video below.

Of course the most striking thing about it is the controls, it looks very comfortable and has real looking analog sticks (rather than sliders found on most other similar handhelds) – but I’ll reserve judgement ’til we see and hear some more.

  1. Looks so good to use. I hope it comes with a decently sized battery, a quad core RK3188 or Tegra 3 processor and a nice resolution. Also hoping that the handles have a nice rubbery matte feel instead of being glossy and plain out sad plastic.

  2. It looks comfortable as hell to use. I just hope they spec it right.
    It also looks like the same key mapping tool that JXD is using is running on that too.
    That could be a good thing in that the newer enhanced keymapper is pretty decent.

  3. This is truly a generic gamepad with an actual screen, faithful to form! I can look at it as a psx/xbox pad, but with a screen on it. At formal level, it really embodies gaming in its control. But then again, it needs to be saved by someone on forums to work decently, as usual… Overall, it’s quite interesting. (The psp go has an adapter to make it look very much like this)
