...And China Rips-Off the PS Vita

Sony is making the PlayStation Vita at a Chinese factory. And, surprise, another Chinese company is releasing a new device that looks an awful lot like the Vita. Anyone remember the iPed?

Called the Yinlips YDPG18, the Android-powered portable has a gravity sensor, front and back cameras, a large LCD screen, 1080p support, and a front touch-screen.

Where the Vita's right thumbstick should be, there are Select and Start buttons. The back does not have a touch panel. The portable's back features a PSP-style circle and the word "Yinlips".

However, the device's d-pad is similar to the Vita's, with each d-pad button being separate.
