DroidX360 is a PS Vita Knockoff Powered By Android 4.0

PS Vita Android ICS knockoff

Pick any relatively successful electronic device available today and you can almost guarantee there will be an identical knockoff for sale in China. The DroidX360 is a PS Vita lookalike that won’t run Rayman Origins or Unit 13, but will play any title you can find in the Google Play store.

From Shenzhen Xunlong and discovered by M.I.C. Gadget, the DroidX360 is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features the same kind of internals you’d find in a smartphone, including a 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. It also sports a 5-inch 800 x 480 display, and a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Unlike the PS Vita, however, the DroidX360 doesn’t feature a front-facing camera, or a rear touchpad. It does have a bright green Android logo on the back, though.

Of course, you’re never going to get the same experience from the DroidX360 as you would from the real PS Vita, but this could be a good way to enjoy smartphone games or emulators with physical controls — as you can see from the video below.

If you’re in China or if you’re planning a trip to China and you pick up a DroidX360, we’d love to know what it’s like and what it’s capable of.
