Droid X360: the PS Vita becomes economical
If copying is the most obvious form of flattery, this time we can say that an anonymous Taiwanese producer has really hit rock bottom. PSP Vita, Sony's portable console with undoubted technical qualities, has been on the market for a few months now and moderate sales confirm the difficulties of the current economic situation. Since the cunning of the producers has no limits, here comes a low-priced copy from the far east, clearly inspired by it. The producers have beautifully copied its shape but, demonstrating an uncommon sense of humor, they have given it a name that is all a program: Droid X360.

Shape, screen and layout of the controls are shamelessly borrowed from Sony's PS Vita: obviously the components, the screen and everything else come from no one knows which Taiwanese company with low cost and overall quality seems follow faithfully. At first glance the Droid X360 seems to have a lot to do with a super budget tablet reviewed some time ago in the infamous £ 50 Android experiment based on a well-known configuration, namely the ubiquitous A10 chipset aided by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU. , which were associated with two Mali-400 graphics processors. To these have been added 512MB system RAM which houses Android 4.0 and an 8GB flash disk drive.

The main screen is a 5-inch multi-touch with a resolution of 800x480 pixels in conjunction with a video camera facing the user and a 2 megapixel camera in the back, to which are added TF card and microUSB socket. What is surprising about this product, however, is the HDMI output, a feature absent even from the PS Vita. The battery stands at 2800mAh for about three hours of use.

So, what you could do with this clone, low cost of the PS Vita (at least from the aesthetic point of view) that in reality hides a real low-end tablets running Android? Basically it should offer all the features of this operating system in version 4.0, including navigating, using Google Play, and Chrome. The performance should be more than suitable for this kind of use, including viewing video from YouTube. But apart from this? The novelty is the fact that the console is sold pre-installed with a series of emulators for the NES, Master System, Nintendo 64 and many others. The intention is clear: to make a tablet designed for emulation and giving it the shape of a modern portable console, even if the limits of plagiarism.

the comparison of the images via Twitter, the response of the President of the Studios, Sony was simply: "WoW."

Available now from all of the best dealers of low cost material, the Droid X360 costs 115 dollars delivered, then about 95 Euros for the european market. Waiting for more than a certain legal case of Sony, fans of retro gaming can make us a little thought? To you the last word.
