JXD's Singularity handheld console has Tegra power

Chinese firm JXD have had a couple of goes at handheld Android games machines, borrowing heavily from Sony's ideas. But now they're going their own way with all-new Tegra K1 powered Android monster.

UPDATE: This Vita killer is now on preorder on Funstock for shipping 6 May at a reasonable £219.99.  If Sony at any points wants to borrow this specification for the Vita 2, go right ahead! 

 Ditching any pretense of a slimline design, it has chunky grips, protruding dual sticks and angular edges. The company has been going to 10 years now, and has hopefully learned about button quality and other issues - if it has pulled things together, this could be mighty!
The NVIDIA Tegra K1 quad core, 2.0GHz ARM Cortex-A15 in the Singularity S192 packs in 192 graphics cores for blistering performance found in Nvidia's own Shield devices. It plays all the latest Android titles and comes with 18 emulators (including a PSP, and there's even a Windows logo) to a whole world of historical gaming.

The 7-inch 1920 x 1200 full HD touch display offers 323 ppi and gets a "retina" tag, while I'm sure Apple's lawyers will soon stamp on. Driving it all, including the two cameras, is a 10,000mah battery.

 If its put together even reasonably well, that could make it quite a gaming machine, it will be due out at the end of the year with a $269 price tag. Eat that, Sony, left to only imagine how cool a Vita 2 would be.
