JXD is preparing to launch two new gaming tablets, the S7800 and S5800 models, that are 7 inch and 5 inch devices respectively. These units resemble the PlayStation Vita in design just a little bit and they have more powerful specs than the Sony gear.

For example, the 7 inch quad core JXD S7800 comes with a IPS 1280 x 800 display, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, HDMI, a free game center, dual USA CTS joysticks, shoulder buttons and dual speakers. There’s also dual cameras on board, a 5000 mAh battery, Android 4.2.2 and the CPU is a 1.8 GHz quad core unit, while inside the device there’s also 8 GB of flash storage.

The CPU used here is a Rockchip, but there’s also an Allwinner CPU inside the S7800a version of the console. The JXD S5800 is a 5 inch Android 4.2 device with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a quad core RK 3188 CPU, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, 12 emulators and dual joysticks. We’ve got WiFi on it, a 0.3 MP front camera and a 2 MP rear camera, plus HDMI.

The S7800a will cost $160, while the S7800b will cost $170.

    What’s the link/source of this information as I have searched without success for a lead to a store or site carrying these devices or even an announcement. Personally I wish android gaming every success as I’ve played titles by Gameloft and others as good as any on PSP, PS2 or Xbox and rivaling even present gen consoles in game design and fun factor.

    Its coming towards the end of August/early September. There seems to be a fair bit of interest in this device.
