Why aren’t there more Android game players like the JXD S5100?


While knock off iPhones and iPads are something of the norm in China, I am constantly surprised by the lack of fake, or iPod Touch inspired Android devices strictly for gaming or other multimedia chores such as gaming!

Android is ruling the smartphone and tablet roost, the open source OS isn’t doing anything spectacular in the MP4 and gaming department! Well thank goodness for the JXD S5100 handheld game player which runs Android ICS!

Chinese brand JXD, themselves a JVC clone, have decided to fill this niche market with some exceptional looking Android based hand held gaming systems!

The JXD S5100 looks a little like the new Nintendo Wii U controller, with a single 5 inch touch screen and traditional joypad configuration and analogue stick as you would find on the many versions of the Sony PSP.

For around $130 the JXD S5100 Android handheld gaming system features a 5-inch 800×480 resolution display screen, ARM A9 AMLogic  AML8726 M3 processor, 512MB DDR3 of RAM, 4GB of ROM and external SD card reader for additional game space.

    the 5100 looks like the bottom half of the 3ds and I think the reason you don’t see too many of these -save for mainstream sony xperia play- is because many apps just don’t have controller mapping and their is no standardization for controller mapping either.

      Good point, and yes it looks a lot like half a Nintendo 3DS. I wish my son hadn’t seen that video as he is after one now…
