It may look like PS Vita on the outside, but it is actually the Chinese’s take on Xperia Play. The Yinlips YDGP18 is an Android smart game player that does not have the same internal quad-core features like the Vita console. Instead of making headway towards premium portable gaming experience, Yinlips made its device running on Android platform (Froyo/Gingerbread) that is only capable of old school gaming emulators.
The unit works as a relatively affordable provider of classic game play all enclosed in very cool advanced gaming machine design. By providing the player access to classic arcade games that a regular tablet does not have makes the YDGP18 unique. This Yinlips’ contraption works by providing you full touch screen game experience with gravity sensor directions. Also, the unit supports multi-player games for you and the rest of your YDGP18 buddies.
The device is readily installed with a 5-inch display (800 x 480 resolution), variety of HDMI ports, a single-core 1.2GHz processor, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 512MB of DDR2 RAM. According to many, with these hum drum specs, the number of people who might want to get their hands on this Vita doppelganger is, well, very few.
On the brighter side of things, those who have intentions of having a collection of old games could put in this Yinlips toy. And that would be right next to the Family Computer and the Atari. But, then again, collecting video games past is not such a bad thing. In fact, you might end up loving the gadget for what it is and what it is not.
