Wii U GamePad-style Android handheld with pre-installed emulators available now

Chinese electronics manufacturer JinXing Digital released an Android-based handheld this month designed to bring classic and retro video games into the mobile sector, according to a product listing on JinXing Digital's website.

The JXD S7300 HD Gamepad2 handheld, which is roughly the size of the Wii U GamePad controller and the weight of an iPad mini, runs Android 4.1 software and comes pre-installed with a handful of console emulators: PlayStation 1, Capcom Play System 1 and 2, Neo Geo, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advance, Famicom, Super Famicom and Sega Mega Drive.

JingXing notes that the handheld runs on Mali-400 GPU, which is compatible with 95 percent of Android games and is used by some of the largest mobile games developers in the industry, including Electronic Arts and Gameloft.

The controls are built similar to console controllers, and include a D-pad, two thumbsticks, face buttons and shoulder triggers. The JXD S7300 HD comes with 1GB of RAM memory and also includes a USB port, HDMI output, dual speakers, a touchscreen at 1024x600 resolution and a camera on its front. Users can also connect to the internet using the Gamepad 2's wireless, Ethernet or 3G compatibility.

The JXD S7300 HD Gamepad2 is currently available at retro handheld retailer WillGo for $165.99, or bundled with a 32 GB memory card for $186.99.
