GPS keychain looks like a Tamagotchi

September 10th, 2010

It just seems like yesterday when an ugly pixelized virtual pet on keychain took over the world and now you can use the GPS Receiver + Location Finder Keychain (PG03 Mini GPS) to find your way back to any stored point of interest. Technology advances so quickly. The neat little gadget is quite handy to get back to your parked car or tent on a festival campsite. It’s also capable of recording the travel speed and time and it’s possible to to view the current velocity and altitude. Pretty sweet. At $35.25/€27.72 it’s not very expensive either.

SmartQ V3 Android/Linux MID shows up for $119.99

September 8th, 2010

The SmartQ V3 just showed up at AllPMP for $119.99/€94.15, which is $30 less than the very similair SmartQ V5 (SmartQ V5 review). So what are the differences? It seems like the V3 doesn’t have Bluetooth, lacks a microphone and comes without the useless Windows CE. Other than that, it’s still a nice little tablet with a 4.3″ 800×480 touchscreen, 600MHz ARM processor, 256MB RAM, WiFi, 2GB flash memory, HDMI output, 1080p video playback, SD card slot, USB On-The-Go and both Android and Linux as operating systems. The color has also been changed, from champagne gold to silver and it seems like this one comes with a pair of earbuds. AllPMP expects to ship the devices next Monday.

September 5th, 2010

Yongnuo has made a name for itself by releasing very decent flash units for very low prices and finally, they have released a new one for Nikon camera’s. The YN-467 improves on the previous models by combining the i-TTL support of the Yongnuo YN-465 with the slave trigger functions from the YN-460 with a new auto zoom head. You can grab it from DealExtreme for $77.70/€60.54. Too bad I just bought a YN-465.

SmartQ V5 and V7 tablet prices drop to $149.99 and $209.99

August 24th, 2010

The SmartQ V5 is still the most ambitious gadget to come out of China. It’s a small tablet(pictured on the bottom left) with a 4.3″ 800×480 touchscreen, HDMI output, full SD card slot, wifi and three operating systems installed (Linux, Android and Windows CE). It’s even capable of playing 1080p videos. Since our SmartQ V5 review, there have been quite some updates which vastly improved the device. Even better is that AllPMP dropped the price to a sweet $149.99/€116.06. The SmartQ V7 is basically the same device with a 7″ screen and a larger battery. It’s now selling for $209.99/€165.29.

SmartQ T7 7″ Android tablet available now

August 9th, 2010

The SmartQ T7 is basically a SmartQ R7 with a faster processor and Android 2.1 installed instead of Linux. The clockspeed of the processor has been increased to 720MHz, up from 667MHz on the R7, but besides that it’s technically the same device. Unlike all other Android tablets from China (except the Ramos W7), the SmartQ devices are actually very decent products. Battery life is good, the 7″ touchscreen is decent with a resolution of 800×600 and the devices are well built. So the Android junkies who were waiting for a decent 7″ tablet might consider the SmartQ T7. The only downside is that it uses one of those old-fashioned resistive touchscreens. Even though the processor speed has been increased, the price stayed the same at $233.99/€177.58 for the Wifi version. There is also a 3G version priced at $283.99/€215.53.

Letcool N350JP handheld comes with two gamepads

June 15th, 2010

Letcool N350JP

Ever since the day the Dingoo A320 was released, the Chinese market is flooded with portable game consoles.  Most of them are able to emulate games from classic game consoles and do some media playback, but weren’t able to gain the popularity of the A320. However, the Letcool N350JP seems to be a pretty decent contender. It basically looks like a single screen Nintendo DS and comes with two small gamepads. This might seem silly for a portable device, but it also features a TV-out port and what’s more awesome than a two player game of Contra, Bubble Bobble or Street Fighter II on a boring flight? It’s also quite cheap, costing only $71.25/€58.39 at ChinaVasion. Peep the device running Doom after the break.
