JXD S7100 brings some gaming to Android tablets, invites lawsuits


While most of the 7-inch Android "tablets" that emerge from China are little more than low resolution resistive touchscreen devices of questionable quality, occasionally one stands out from the rest. The JXD S7100 is one of these tablets, bringing to the table what look like great gaming controls while still maintaining a low $140 price point.

For being so cheap, the tablet/gaming console boasts some very impressive specs. It comes with a dual-core ARM Cortex processor, Mali 400 graphics, 512MB of RAM, 2MP rear and .3MP front cameras, 16GB of storage, HDMI out, and a 7-inch 800 x 480 display. Just for reference, the Cortex A9 is the kind of chip powering current high end smartphones, and the Mali 400 is the exact GPU found in the Galaxy S II.

As far as software, the system is running customized Android 2.2, supposedly including "Apple games, Sony games, Nintendo games, and Sega games." If this apparent promotion of questionably legal emulators doesn't get them into trouble, their PSP-like button design or their ripoff of Apple's website design still might.

Even with the potential infringement problems, the S7100 still has some great hardware at an even better price, with the added bonus of some game controls that look surprisingly good. Although importing it from China probably wouldn't be worth it, if it somehow makes it to the US or other countries it certainly seems worth a look.
