Iwod G10 adds a NES emulator to a PMP


Sure, the new Iwod G10 has a name that isn’t particularly original, and sure it is a Chinese knockoff, but there is still reason enough to get excited about it. It’s a portable media player with a nifty twist. It has an NES emulator. Seriously. That means you load up NES games onto an SD card and you can play Mario wherever you want without shelling out for a real Nintendo system.

When you aren’t gaming away, you can listen to audio or watch video in the usual formats. Video is shown off on the 2.5 inch screen. The lithium ion battery provides 10 hours of playback for video or up to 26 for audio. The whole thing fits into a tidy little package – it is 3.2 inches long, just half an inch thick and weighs only 3.2 ounces. The biggest drawback is the memory. It only sports 256MB on board, but you can add up to 1GB at a time with the SD card slot.

The Iwod G10 would be fun to play with but, sadly, it is only available in China for now. If you happen to be in the area you can grab one for about $150 USD.
