Brian visits the Yinlips Factory; stumbles upon mystery 7” device …

Image
Thanks to Typodermic’s cousin, Brian (don’t ask!), we now have a first hand account of where all that Yinlips goodness is made! Head on over to Brian Barrett’s blog here for his full impressions of Yinlips’ factory and showroom: http://www.briansopinion.com/?p=1290Foxconn it ain’t, but it appears somewhat larger than the Dingoo factory we uncovered in ‘09! Just like the devices they make, factories in China grow in size and features every 6 days, and cost 95% less to run! Here are some choice extracts from Brian’s article to wet your interest:http://www.briansopinion.com/?p=1290The Yinlips factory is located in a high tech park in NanShan district of Shenzhen. My taxi had quite a bit of trouble locating the factory, but I’ve come up with a system for helping them out. Taxi drivers here don’t seem to try and extract information from you since they know you don’t speak Mandarin. If I see a taxi driver a bit confused, I just call the place in question and hand him the phone. This has pro…

DeenOX’s massive PXN-86133 Android controller review

This was just too good - I had to reprint!Review PXN-86133 Command (Android & PC Compatible Thanks My thanks to the people of Willgoo I have paid attention and have taken the trouble to go personally to the various stores I've been researching, and performing test patterns that I designed to get results from existing alternatives. All this has not been easy, because in general the Asian vendors are not very predisposed to cooperate for testing, and not give much information about their products (which basically do not know its features and functions). For all these reasons, and for putting up with (I've been very heavy with the issue) reiterate my thanks, willingness and patience of the store. And the fruit of this research is the product of this review, PXN-86133 command sent to me to perform my tests and presented below. I hope you find it useful this article.

Working analog stick in Chinese Android Gaming Devices – will we ever see one?

Image
With the release this year of the Yinlips YDPG 18, YDPG 16, JXD 601, JXD 5110, JXD S7100 – and variants of the above, you’re all right to be a little confused, and likely a little cynical, about whether more choice is a good thing, or whether Apple should move into this space.The various devices all promise greatness but at this point, none of them implement a fully working analog stick, despite the hardware being present on all of them. The common response is to blame the manufacturer, but what is the real technical reason behind those sticks not working in any android N64 or PSX emulator?Robert Broglia, author of the .emu emulators (which do not emulate systems at this time which use analog sticks by the way) kindly shared his thoughts on this, as per the email trail below:Hi Robert I was wondering with your testing, whether you had any thoughts on the "analog controller" on the YDPG18. My understanding is that the controller is a true analog controller, but the version of…

Big news from zear:OpenDingux is out for end-users!

That's right, after 2 long years, OpenDingux finally reached a first end-user release. Here's what the developers have to say:
Quote from: mth on June 16, 2012, 11:34:55 PM
It has happened, the egg that was laid two years ago has finally hatched: Ayla and I have declared OpenDingux to be ready for end users. So if you are using Dingux and would like a more polished distro, this would be the ideal time to try OpenDingux. Or if you are already using an OpenDingux pre-release, it is a good time to upgrade. You can download the kernel, rootfs and (if you are a developer) the toolchain from the OpenDingux Releases page. The installation consists of 3 steps:
install the dual boot loader, see instructions on the wiki; it is the same boot loader as for legacy Dingux, so if you already have it installed, skip this step
download the right kernel, put it in the root of your SD card and name it &q…

Pop over here for Obscurehandheld’s great YDPG16 review, kinda lukewarm off the presses – you read it here second!Yinlips YDPG16 Review Android handhelds are being churned out of busy Chinese factories at an alarming rate.

So before we all jump on the capacitive screen and Android 4.0 bandwagon let us stop, take a step back and have a proper look at one of the more interesting current models.……Here to read more

Power A Moga Bluetooth Controller for Android devices … Are those analog sticks real?

Image
E3 is buzzing with news of this dual analog solution for
Android phones – do a quick google to read posts like the one below from Kotaku:



This Elegant Controller Solution Could Change the Way Mobile Games are Made and PlayedThis Elegant Controller Solution Could Change the Way Mobile Games are Made and Played
When I first showed pictures of Power A's MOGA to my compatriots, they thought it was a brand new gaming handheld. In a way, it is. MOGA is a complete mobile gaming system aimed at making today's console-quality smartphone games play like console games. Mobile phone gaming controllers have come and gone, bulky add-ons proving more novelty than mobile gaming revolution. Accessory developers have been trying for years to develop a solution to the touch screen control issue, but up until now nothing has stuck. How will MOGA be any different? Instead of just creating a controller and tossing it out into the wild, Power A has created, as I said, the…
