Chinese company Vastking is showing off a new tablet with an 8 inch full HD display, an Intel Apollo Lake processor, and up to 6GB of RAM... and it has joy-cons that can attach to the sides of the tablet. Other features include a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, a micro HDMI port, a headset jack, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, a 2MP front camera, and a 7.6V 3,400 mAh battery that the company says should offer up to 4 hours of run time.

Hah, they weren't even trying to be subtle here. I wonder if a lawsuit from Nintendo will ensue.

Nintendo is doomed!



I shall dub it...

The Niniendo Reversal.



They're just fucking joycons! It isn't even subtle! They're Joycons. But man, it's packing quite a punch in power over Switch. But there have been tons of devices like this, Switch has been the only successful one so far. Shouldn't be any different with this one.

Good luck with that.




This has been going on forever.

It even has the SL/SR buttons. They could have improved the sliding rail system by making it from the bottom. But if you notice all the connectors are at the top of the tablet, charging wont be a problem. And the stand does seem to be more robust.

It's a Chinese product so it's very unlikely Nintendo will waste their time with it. Chinese law is very unfriendly to international companies suing for copyright infringement, very few have ever won a lawsuit there. Knockoff products are very common in China and are basically protected by law. 



here is another one, the Morphus X300:

presented in oct 2015 - wait that's an entire year before Nintendo first showed the Switch, China can copy the future!



It lacks what is the main sales driver of the Switch - Nintendo's games.
