Droid X360 hybridises PS Vita and Android

Nice knockoff

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The market is awash with knockoff consoles shipped from China, but some certainly look more appealing than others. Check out this Droid X360, a PlayStation Vita lookalike that runs Android 4.0.

The Droid X360 from Shenzhen Xunlong packs a 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of Ram and a 5in display at 800 x 480 pixels. There's also a 2Mp rear-facing camera and 8GB of storage, Chinese site Shanzhaiben reports.

The rear does seem to lack the touchpad found on the Sony handheld, but while I never found its inclusion in Vita games much cop anyway, it's unlikely to be needed for any downloads you snag through Google Play.

Being Android-based means it's emulator friendly too and actually comes with nine systems already built-in. Wowzers. Those still desperate to play PSone games on their handhelds may not have to wait for the official green-light after all.

While there's no sign of pricing, I'll make sure my Chinese-bound flatmate looks out for one. Further details - scribbled on a postcard - are on the way soon. ®
