Droid X360 hybridises PS Vita and Android

Nice knockoff

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

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. ®
