Gemei Promotes Another Classic Device To PRO Status – The HD8800 PRO

June 14, 2011 by Alex in Android Tablet, Gemei, MP4, PMP, Tablet with No Comments.

We've very recently blogged about Gemei's HD8900 PRO player - the Android + WiFi successor to the HD8900. Gemei has now done the same to their old HD8800 player. Like the HD8900 PRO, the HD8800 PRO is also an updated version of its predecessor which adds Android OS and WiFi connectivity. Also like its PRO brethren, the Android version on the HD8800 PRO is unknown, although if Gemei is keeping with the times by adding Android and WiFi to their PMPs, we can only hope it's at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread (although 2.2 FroYo is probably the more realistic version). via imp3

Gemei’s Pocket Sized Android + WiFi Player – The HD8900 PRO

June 13, 2011 by Alex in Android Tablet, Gemei, MP4, PMP, Tablet with 1 Comment.

First there was the smart PMP - media players that would support Android OS but no connectivity, rendering them practically neutered in that aspect. Then came the revolution of the smart PMP with WiFi - an Android player with all the free range internet connectivity can offer. We have one of these devices in our very own web-store - the Ainol NOVO5. We've now spotted another 5-inch player of the same ilk - Gemei's HD8900 PRO - the successor to Gemei's HD8900 PMP. It is, as mentioned, a 5-inch player that sports Android OS (of what version we have yet to find out) and comes with WiFi connectivity. It has a resolution of 800 x 480, does HD video playback, has 256MB of RAM and supports HDMI out. Gemei are also boasting that it has a long lasting battery life - possibly the same 5-hours the

Gemei HD8800LE – Big Model # But Only 720p

March 22, 2011 by HS in Gemei, MP4, PMP with No Comments.

Gemei's HD8800LE is a low-cost, "low end" HD-capable PMP. It does 720p HD video playback of most typical video file formats (RMVB, MKV, AVI, WMV, VOB, DAT, MOV, MPG, MP4 etc.). The HD8800LE is a 4.3-inch player, which is something we don't see too much of anymore. It's actually a pretty decently portable size, and fits into most trouser pockets easily, but watching video on it might be a limited experience to some who enjoy larger displays. The HD8800LE also has a Flash-based UI, but that's nothing special and not really a big selling point. We're not sure what resolution the player is running, but it will either be 480 x 272 or 800 x 480, probably the former. via imp3

Gemei GM2000 Colour E-Reader

July 27, 2010 by HS in Gemei with No Comments.

Gemei were making some waves on the internet with the video that surfaced of smooth colour PDF scrolling a while back. They have since debuted their GM2000 7-inch colour e-book reader that starts out in the 4GB flavour. The e-reader utilizes an LCD screen (after switching away from e-ink in the development process) meaning that battery life won't be stellar, but comic book reading will be far, far more attractive. The e-reader supports the standard file formats such as PDF, UMD, TXT, HTM etc. If the video that surfaced earlier is any indication, it looks like it may run on the Google Android OS, and Gemei are claiming this e-reader is capable of 1080p playback, which is certainly something interesting and makes us curious about what chip it's using. If it indeed does run Android, it

Gemei 7-Inch E-Reader Videoed

July 9, 2010 by HS in Gemei with 1 Comment.

The above is a video of an upcoming Gemei 7-inch e-reader. While specs for the thing are as yet largely unknown, but it does look like this could be running Android OS thanks to a few snaps at iMP3. It is unknown what chip the device will be powered by, whether a Rockchip or Chinachip or another variant capable of running the Android OS. Either way, in the video the PDF scrolling looks pretty smooth and snappy, and if this device does run on Android it will offer a lot more functionality than simply reading PDFs. And yes, the device currently has no shell - it is still in testing phases, no doubt. Discuss this on our forums! via iMP3

Gemei HD8900 Enters The Fray

June 23, 2010 by HS in Gemei, PMP with 1 Comment.

Gemei have unveiled a new player, the HD8900. This is a 5-inch player with, supposedly, an 800x480 screen resolution which is nice to see in the 5-inch size, as opposed to the 480x272 variety. Chief among the touted features of the HD8900 is their e-book PDF reader (which can also read HTML and PDM files), which comes with the ability to switch among thousands of fonts, regulate things like background brightness and colours for a better reading experience. Swell. The player is also full 1080p capable with, it is said, up to "5 hours" of battery life. We must always be cautious when guaging battery life as that largely depends on what you're doing on the player and involves other mitigating factors like video resolution, whether you are using the speakers or earphones etc. Either way, a

Seven 7-Inch Player Comparison & Summary

Zol are at it again, those busy bees, with another seven player summary - this time, instead of the 5-inch players they did last time, they are comparing and summarising 7-inch players. If you're in the market for this size, then reading this will definitely give you a heads-up on some of the popular players out there on the market. This summary again comes complete with tabulated specs for each player, good quality photographs and generally tells you everything you need to know sans a video review. The seven players compared are the RAmos T18; the Newman A70HD; the Bmorn BM-996SHD; the Onda VX797HD; the Chuwi M70 Plus; the ONN V9; and the Gemei HD970. Of all these players, only 2 (the RAmos T18 and the ONN V9) are 1080p video playback capable. Read the full rundown to get a feel fo

Seven 5-Inch Players Compared And Summarised

June 9, 2010 by HS in Ainol, Bmorn, Gemei, Newsmy, Onda, Ramos with No Comments.

The folks over at zol have compared and summarised, complete with pictures and tabulated specs, 7 popular 5-inch players on the market today. Their rationale for doing so is that 5-inch players will soon overtake 4.3-inch players as the industry leading standard in terms of quality and desirability, particularly when we keep in mind that newer and better chips are able to better decode 1080p videos at 800x480 resolution. The devices compared are the RAmos T13FHD; the Onda VX575; the Gemei S6000; the Ainol V8000HDS; the Newman A16HD; the Bmorn BM-889; and the ICOO E900P. All of these players are capable of decoding 1080p video with the exception of the Newman A16HD and the Bmorn BM-889 which can do only 720p. If you're in the market for a 5-inch player, this might be the roundup to help

May 28, 2010 by HS in Ainol, Gemei, Onda, Ramos, Teclast with No Comments.

The good people over at zol have done a comparison review article on 5 popular 1080p players, arguably some of the heavyweights on the market.  Among the 5 players compared there is the RAmos T13FHD, the Ainol V9000HDA, the Onda VX575, Gemei HD8800 and last but not least the Teclast T56. From the video performance to the UI, picture viewer and e-reader functionality are all compared and noted upon, with the advantages and disadvantanges of each commented on, the comparison article proves useful for those who are embroiled in a battle of which PMP player to choose. Read the full comparison. via zol
