Not likely to happen, it's all about the Android tablets now... But Android smart watches are also becoming more popular lately. Remember those Nelsonic video game wristwatches from the 1980s? Make an Android watch with similar design (face buttons, mini joystick), and we'd have a new contender for "Smallest device with buttons and emulation support".
Something like this :D?:

Was browsing tinydeal.com and remembered this thread when I saw this:



A bit vague on what games it actually plays, the description says "Built-in 1000 kniget rider games for your choices".  ???

From looking at the box, I'd guess this is made by the same company that made the PAP-Gameta. Who knows if it's got one of their cruddy chipset/OS, or is it a proper SPMP8k... If someone has $22.89USD to spare, get one and let us know!

Oddest thing about this particular redesign, the camera has been replaced with a laser light...  :o  Mom always said those video games would ruin your eyes, this thing could very well prove her right!  :P

I just managed to nab a genuine, new in box JXD 100 from eBay for $31 (with free shipping). And it was from a seller in California, so I didn't have to wait forever and a week to get it either. SCHWEET.

Despite my history of collecting Chinese handheld games, this is my first JXD. The closest thing I've had to a JXD before is the Eachgame 1000 (an upgraded version of the JXD 3000). My first impression is good. It feels light, but solidly built. The analog nub for a d-pad takes a little getting used to, but it's not too bad. The small dead zone makes it easy to quickly change direction, although it can be tricky to know precisely which direction you're pressing. The buttons are pretty responsive (maybe TOO responsive, often when entering a folder in the file explorer, the first file inside that folder gets selected before you even see it). The single speaker isn't that great, but it is loud enough. The screen is bright and clear with good viewing angles. Now I just need to hunt down a JXD 200B and A3300 for under $40...


I found a few more JXD 100 lookalikes on DHgate:

$25.48, 4GB
Claims to "Support 16-bit games"
http://www.dhgate.com/product/mp3-player-mp4-mp5-players-2-4-quot-tft-screen/106477400.html


$28.41, 8GB
Looks the same as the white one but only claims "Supports NES game play"
http://www.dhgate.com/product/8gb-2-6-inch-screen-mp4-5-player-with-camera/127818638.html


$31.21 for 8GB, $33.64 for 16GB, (I recently saw a 2GB model sell for $11 on AliExpress, sadly it was the only one in stock  :'()
I think this one is made by Sanemax, probably same capabilities as the previous two, but I think the colored buttons and shiny trim make it look a bit snazzier.  8)
http://www.dhgate.com/product/mp3-player-mp4-mp5-players-2-7-inch-8gb-16gb/114762597.html


$30.77, 2GB
Looks like it might be a little bit smaller than the others. No camera/laser, also seems to have lost the Select button (with the ESC button in the shape and position you'd expect the Select button to be). While most other knock-offs have circular buttons, this one has the same rounded triangle shape as the JXD. The description claims "support 8-32bit GBA/SFC/ SNES/FC/NES/MD/MVS/NEO-GEO/CPS1/CPS2/LynGOO/GBC games". I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess this is copy/pasted from the Dingoo A330 descripiton, rather unlikely this plays arcade or Lynx games.

HA! It might be worth getting one of these just to try that.  ;D

ha! i had the first/second one! :D
it can play nes/gbc, but tv out lags too much. also it has an experimental snes emulator (only one button + dpad work and its like 1fps :P)
it didnt save button layouts, but it did support ingame saving (or via menu? dont really remember sorry).
so for some pokemon, zelda or the like on the go its very nice.

the third one is nonexistent to my knowledge. i had ordered one of them before and got the one above.
but technically they are the same, just a different design (much more appealing tho imo).

the last ones os i know as well. was your typical spmp8k alike. did play most things pretty well, if i remember correctly even lighter snes games.

Hey, did you folks know JXD has their own online store? And they still have some JXD-100 in stock?!? I thought I got a good deal on one for $31 (considering I saw them for sale on aliexpress for $50), but JXD is selling them for $18.41 (apparently marked down from $25.84). Note that it's the only pre-Android game console in their store, and even though it supposedly comes in ~8 colors you don't get prompted to pick one when you add it to your cart, so who knows how many and what colors they have in stock (July 14 EDIT: they've added a dropdown box with the selections Black and Yellow. I've also submitted a review, but it has not yet been published). Apparently they have 446 as of this writing (or at least their system thinks so), that's the most I could add to the cart without getting a message stating The requested quantity for "JXD-100" is not available.

http://www.jxdofficial.com/jxd-100-2-8-inch-childen-game-console-player.html

They've also got the new JXD-S7300C for $88.39, but who cares about those Android devices?  ::) :P

It's fixed shipping rate at $15 so it's $34 in total. You still got a good deal!

You can play it in PSP too.
An old NDS can play them as well except Mame.
I have both but I run everything in my phone with an iPega controller because of other systems.
I think your question as a lot of different answers.

Thanks for your help. I like the Gameboy Micro and also the JXD-100 form factors small and compact. I can't wait for the day we got a key chain sized emulator handheld . The Gameboy Nano which is powered by Raspberry Pi is very cool and runs all the emulatorsi. If you guys see anything that sticks out or is new please post in this thread.

That's too small for my eyes.
Still it's a cool gadget.
I've made a bartop cabinet with a raspberry pi 3 with the same software.
