iMAX-G5 or Vaio UX280P?

Imax_g5If imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, then I think it’s safe to assume that China-based company iMAX is in love with the Sony Vaio UX280P.

At just 4.7 x 2.4 x 0.8 inches and 3.5 ounces, the iMAX-G5 is much smaller and lighter than its design inspiration, but it’s sure to turn the same amount of heads with its sliding 3-inch TFT display (320 x 240). That’s really the only thing that caught my eye because despite what the G5 calls to mind, it’s actually just another portable media player coming out of and available only in China. In addition to everything you’d expect from a PMP (video, photos, music), it has a built-in digital camera and Nintendo emulator. There’s also a very necessary SD/MMC expansion card slot; without it, you’d be stuck with a device that maxes out at 1GB. It actually even comes in a 128MB model.

I can’t find pricing information anywhere, but if you’ve got about $2K, you can either get one UX280P or at least 20 of these. More pics of the iMAX-G5 can be found here.
