Yinlips Joins The GamePad Party

Hot on the heels of JXD’s new models comes word of two new machines from Yinlips. Actually, info on the YDPG27 has been floating around for a while – but now we also have info on another new and previously unseen model, the YDPG29. Word has it that both consoles are running Sunplus GP3033 SoCs which are based on a single core Cortex A8, PowerVR SGX 531 GPU and 512MB RAM.
