Looking like a cross between a Sidekick, a PSP Go and a portable DVD player, the JXD V3 doesn’t seem like it’s made up its mind when it comes to what it’s good at, so I guess it’s just decided to be a jack of all trades… master of some? The 4.3 inch TFT LCD display has a resolution of 480×272 pixels, though it’s able to play back video files including RMVB, RM, AVI, VOB, DAT, MPG, FLV, 3GP, MP4, ASF and WMVs up to 1280×720 in size. When it comes to music it plays nice with MP3, WMA, WAV, AMR, AAC, FLAC and APE files, and there’s even an FM radio in there for some local content.
You’ll also notice a couple of 4-way directional pads which are important since the JXD V3 also plays Game Boy, Game Boy Color, NES and other game file formats including flash SWF files, and they’ve even gone to the trouble of including a PSP-like flat analog stick. You’d think it would stop there, but you’ll also find a 5.0MP camera crammed in there that can capture 30fps VGA videos to its 8GB of internal flash memory. On top of all that there’s even TV in and out capabilities turning this into a portable gaming console, all for just $112 from Ownta.com.
