Hooray, Another Way to Play GBA! Said No-one in Years.

Of all the things I could have posted on here in the past 6 months, for some reason it’s yet another GBA emulator that has piqued my interest. I can’t explain it and I’m sorry. Never the less, I absolutely love stuff like this and I’m going to tell you as much as I know … Read more

Xiaomi, Meizu and Oppo’s Attempts At The Premium Budget Smartphone

The mobile phone market is a fast changing one, it was barely 10 years ago that Nokia released its 8310, one of the smallest mobile phones ever mass produced. Oh how things have changed since then.

Back when Nokia, Siemens and Ericsson were dominant manufacturers it would have been hard to imagine things as they are today. But as technology improved and consumers started demanding more from their phones, those old timers struggled to keep up and so the market was opened for someone else to take the helm. Taiwan’s HTC were arguably the first manufacturer to pick up the slack, and here in the UK Orange started offering HTC’s Windows powered SPV “smartphones” in the early 2000s.

Since then Apple’s iPhone has taken the world by storm, Taiwan’s Acer, ASUS and more recently Gigabyte have joined the market, Sony bought the rights to the Sony Ericsson brand, Google bought out Motorola Mobility, South Korea’s Samsung has risen to become one of the biggest mobile phone manufacturers in the world and LG are soon to be propelled into the limelight too when the Google / LG Nexus is released.

There’s no shortage of choice if you’re in the market for a premium smartphone, but one thing remains the same between all of these manufacturers – their top of the range mobile phones cost a hell of a lot of money.

The Insanity Continues…

To the best of my knowledge, all of these machines house the exact same hardware (minus the differences listed below) and run on the same software. … Read more

JXD Stepping Up The Game With A Playstation Emulator

Ohhhh JXD… Where to begin? Well, not at the start because it’s too depressing. So let’s begin at the end, with their latest handheld, the JXD3000. It finally looks like hardware has gotten both fast enough and cheap enough to start churning out handhelds capable of more than SNES/Mega Drive/GBA emulation. Hooray for that! This new model is apparently capable of emulating the Sony Playstation right out of the box, a first for any handheld gaming machine out of China.

Check the vids below for some Castlevania and Tekken 3 action.
