It’s been a while since we heard anything from Yinlips, and even longer since they released anything worth getting excited about. Whether or not their newest addition changes that probably depends a lot on your priorities in a handheld.
Videos from this year’s HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics fair are being uploaded to Youtube thick and fast, and as usual Charbax from armdevices.net is there to interrogate the staff at all of our favourite manufacturers booths. One such video comes from the RockChip booth where we find out a bit more about some of the projects that they are working on from Vice President Chen Feng.
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. This looks to be the same configuration used in the lower end JXD S7300A and 5600A models. Nothing to write home about, but perfectly capable of running most games on consoles pre-N64 and PS1 era.
Brian decided to pick up both machines and has kindly provided a couple of photos (including innards!) and a short comparison video of the two units.
For Thanksgiving, our friends at Willgoo are giving thanks by bundling one of these colourful lanyards with every Android device. So if there was ever an excuse to splurge some cash on a new gadget, what more do you need? And remember, you can support this blog (and my frivolous spending habit) by using one … Read more
And people think Nintendo updates the DS series a bit too often… Amateurs! Yinlips have updated their flagship Android gaming handheld. Following on the heels of their recently upgraded YDPG17, they have announced an upgrade to their 5″ offering, the new YDPG19. The G19 shares a lot of specs with its predecessor the G18A, in that it … Read more
Just like JXD did with their S602, so Yinlips have with their YDPG17. It’s another incremental upgrade, probably not worth it for those who already have the G16, but for those looking to buy their first handheld from China you could do worse. What’s changed since the G16 (click to see my review)? Well not much, … Read more
If you cast your mind back as far as April you might remember the rumours of an Android handheld modelled very closely on what will be Sony’s next machine, the Vita. Well everything went quiet on that front until recently when listings for a new Yinlips device started appearing on the net. Yinlips are the company behind the G80, a mildly successful Win CE 5.0 clamshell comuter back in 2009.
Well it looks as though the iReadyGo has resurfaced, this time under the Yinlips YDPG18 name. It may be a different device, but it certainly looks to be very similar to the aforementioned iReadyGo.
Read on for some specs and more pictures.
