I just don’t know; it seems that these days there’s a rip-off of nearly every conceivable item you can name out there. This is probably no different, the A816 is a multimedia, PDA, gaming, and cell phone device rolled into one. In this case, it rips off the design of the PSP and claims to be a PS3 game player on its icon/logo at the back, which would be a heck of an accomplishment if were true.
Unfortunately of course, it’s not true (have you ever heard of PS3 games in UMD format? Oops, wait, this device doesn’t even come with a UMD slot ala the PSP). The A816 will indeed be capable of GSM calls, video and music playing, acting as PDA in some way not explored yet, and having some quite interesting features, but it will only equipped with GBC/NES/SMC emulators to play all your retro Nintendo games (via downloadable ROMs on the internet).
The price for this on a site I found was US$145, which is not bad for a PDA/multimedia/cell/gaming phone, especially if you’re into old retro gaming to waste time while you’re travelling and have nothing better to do. But if not, I’d say it’ll probably be better to save your cash and use it on some other non-rip-off gadgets with somewhere to service it should something go wrong. I’m not sure Sony will honor any kind of warranty from this device due to obvious reasons.
