This Is An Android Phone That Looks Like a PS Vita

Those crafty Chinese electronics manufacturers are at it again, this time creating a freaking phone that looks almost exactly like the PS Vita. It looks like this.

It’s called the YDPG18 from Yinlips, and it’s missing a couple PS Vita features, like the right thumbstick and the rear touchpad. But it’s a damn phone, and so I can forgive it missing that stuff, and it’s probably much cheaper than the Vita, too. The ASCII report from which I got this photo does not list the price, though.

Oh, and it comes with games preloaded, so that’s good. They probably suck, but still. The thing to remember about this is that nobody is making games for it since it’s an off-brand product, so it’s actually kind of pointless. But, hey, it’s a phone!

my friend this device is not a phone its a handheld gaming system that runs android OS, its more of a tablet than anything else, you dont have to be concerned with developers making games for the device as it is ANDROID, hence it plays android games and very well i might add, the added bonus of this device is the ability to run emulators for retro consoles, and to play these retro games with tactile buttons…
