The growing number of Android gaming tablets has been expanded yet again by a new device from a China-based company called JXD. The tablet, called the S7300, is now available for pre-order from the online retailer Willgoo for the price of $149.99. For this price, Willgoo throws in a free pouch for the tablet and an 8GB memory card. The tablet is expected to arrive sometime between the end of the month until early February.
The gaming device has controls that include a dual joystick and dual Left and Right shoulder buttons. Buttons mapping allows users to find an easy correspondence between the onscreen controls and the device’s physical buttons. Other game control features are G-sensor control and 360-degree visual control. There are three ways that users can enjoy multiplayer gaming: through Wi-Fi direct, Wi-Fi local routing, and Internet-based multiplayer gaming.
One interesting feature of the JXD S7300 is that the tablet is pre-rooted, and has SuperUser access.
Its various connectivity options include Wi-Fi, 3G and cable network via OTG. HDMI dual-screen gaming using the device and an HD television or monitor is also possible through the S7300’s HDMI output port.
The device also supports Android games and nine kinds of simulator games such as “PS1, N64, Arcade CP1/CP2/Neo-Geo, GBA, SFC, MD, FC,” as well as game cloud.
The tablet runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core Amlogic MX chipset with a Cortex A9 CPU with Mali 400 GPU under the hood. Furthermore, it offers 1GB of DDR3 and 8GB of storage capacity. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is its operating system.
For its display, the tablet is packed with a 7-inch LCD. This display is a capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
The S7300 has measurements of 9.5 inches in length, 4.77inches in width, and 0.56 inch in depth.
Adding to the list of specifications is a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and stereo dual speakers.
JXD offers the device in two color options: black and white.
The JXD S7300 will have to compete against gaming tablets from Ouya, Archos, NVIDIA, and Razer, among others, all of which offer an immersive Android gaming experience with the help of gamepad controls.
