Namco Electronics go up a NAM-GEAR


Namco Prize Division has launched a new range of electronics with an upgraded spec. and a new brand name: NAM-GEAR.

“We enjoyed phenomenal success with the KYOTO range of electronic prizes, because the market had never seen such sophisticated products at such an affordable price before,” says James Anderson, General Manager of Namco Prize Europe. “However, it wasn’t long before our competitors were also selling electronic goods and using similar brand names.”

With the launch of the Namco Prize Division in the US, the group decided to create a global brand for its electronic prizes with the name NAM-GEAR

“NAM-GEAR is more than just a new name, it also reflects a higher specification of products,” says James. “With the addition of the US market, we have an even greater purchasing power and we are using this to ensure that all NAM-GEAR electronic products are of the best possible quality, while retaining the same incredibly low prices for the industry.”   

The first few NAM-GEAR branded products are already available and include an upgraded version of the incredibly popular tablet computer. This version features the same responsive five-point touchscreen that can be found on the industry’s most popular mobile devices. It has cameras front and back, a USB connector and micro SD Memory card point, 1080 full HD playback via HDMI Port and 4GB storage. It runs off Google’s Android 4.0 operating system, which the industry analyst IDC recently reported could be found in 75% of the 181.1 million shipments of smart phones and devices during the third quarter of 2012.

The hugely popular HD video camera is also back in an upgraded format. With its own case, the camera can charge from USB but also comes with a battery. It features 1080 full HD playback and adaptable plugs for UK and Europe.

“No detail has been overlooked in the presentation of these products,” says James. “We have packaged them in retail-style, anti-glare matte boxes with the cable ties already fitted, so that they can be easily hung from prize vendors. There will be further products and NAM-GEAR branded machine artwork available shortly.”

To see the range of NAM-GEAR branded products visit the Bandai Namco stand number 530 at EAG.

My daughter won one of these from a machine at the weekend – sadly the tablet will not boot up the operating system, so is not at all useable.

No address to send back to, but will be emailing Nam Gear to see what we can do…

See above comment – a quick call to Nam Co who advised to take the unit back to the arcade where it was won – the staff there where happy to replace and my daughter is really pleased with the tablet.

Great customer service from Nam Co and AMF Bowling staff.

Nam Co also responded to my email, so thanks again.

Well I have had no luck in getting a replacement battery charger, I have emailed Namco a few times now a had no response what so ever, so if your charger pack’s up your tablet is no good to you.

Hi, i also have a namco tablet the same as the one above but i cant seem to get hold of a new charger. The one i currently have has stopped working. Please help?!

23/04/2014, 18:20

Someone help please!?

I won a Nam-Gear g40w phone today and already I can’t open it cos the pattern lock got stuck. It won’t accept what I try to “draw”, I mean there are two dots it won’t connect, no matter how much I try. The crazy thing is that it connects these two dots if I draw them in different order so I guess the screen can’t be broken. What to do, any ideas pls?

Won one of these last night and it won’t boot up.

It’s had a full charge but robot is not playing ball.

The flashing haze just travels around his body and I have reset it numerous times. Can anyone please advise on who I may be able to contact. I won it in a pub so I’m not sure they will be that bothered but if you think it’s worth taking back then so be it. Just unsure what to do.

Many thanks to anyone that responds.

My son won a nam gear NDC 50V0 camera last week. It worked for a day, then it won’t turn on. Have bought brand new high powered batteries and tried them and still nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Won’t turn on at all, all I get is a quick flash of the blue light, then nothing! Thanks

On the way home she’s put a number password on it and can’t remember it. We sadly didn’t connect it to wifi or email address.
Is there any way of bypassing this and starting again?
