Zhongshan Subor Educational Electronics Co., Ltd. (中山市小霸王教育电子有限公司) was a hardware manufacturer based in Zhongshan, China and founded in 1987.
Subor is known for its keyboard-based and standard Famiclones, and and also currently produces a number of Wii clones (such as the iSports) and handheld Famiclones. It is closely linked to Waixing and most software supplied with its current consoles is either developed by Waixing or Waixing-copyrighted versions of other companies' games (e.g. Nice Code).
Duan Yongping joined Subor in 1989, becoming its CEO and overseeing its growth to China's leading manufacturer of game consoles and educational computers. In 1995 he left the company to found BBK Electronics.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the countries of the former Soviet Union, Subor is the second most well-known Famiclone next to Dendy.
- Subor's shortened Chinese name, 小霸王, could be a reference to Water Margin character Zhou Tong's nickname "Little Conqueror".
