PS Vita-like Android gaming console goes on sale for £65

For the next six days, you can grab the JXD Android console for a mere £64 at daily deals website GoGroopie - that's a 68 per cent discount off its £200 suggested retail price, which, to be honest, is a little bit steep given that the PS Vita costs less than that. The cost excludes a £10 P&P fee and users will have to allow up to 21 days for delivery.

The device is essentially a smartphone without 3G capabilities and some dedicated gaming buttons. In fact, it looks a lot like the Sony PS Vita - a bit too much, one might argue - with the possibility of adding simulators.

The portable gaming console – which is available in white - runs on a single-core Amlogic M3 system-on-chip based on the Cortex-A9 and clocked at 900MH. It also has a Mali400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 5in 800 x 480 pixels touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, a VGA rear camera, HDMI/Composite out, a USB port and weighs only 249g.

The JXD Android console will face the likes of the just-announced Archos gaming console, the phased out Sony Xperia Play and a few other Android-based gaming devices with dedicated controls. For more, check our feature article that explores gaming on Android.
