I have a Wouxun KG-UVD1P which I've discovered has a part 90 mode (for people who may easily get confused by numbers and prefer the concept of "channels"). It simply involves disabling menu access. My Yaesu VX-6R has a key combo which accomplishes the same thing.

Does the Baofeng UV-5R have a similar functionality?

The KG-UVD1P can be programmed for public safety and commercial freqs and is FCC type accepted. We have several for to go radios. They will not do 2.5kc steps so certain new splinter freqs such as VCALL can not be programmed in. All together not a bad radio for the price. We went to the TYT UVF1 because it will do 2.5kc steps

I've been looking around lately, is there a mobile version of one of the Chinese radios that is Part 90 accepted?

As an update, the newer Wouxun portables, the KG-UV6D radios are Part 90 and will do the 2.5khz splinter frequencies.

Also if you are looking for a mobile, in addition to the Wouxun mobile, the Anytone AT5888UV is another dual band chinese mobile that is Part 90 accepted and will do the splinter frequencies too.

Yes, but once you program a 2.5 kHz splinter, it's hungry for 5 kHz an hour later.

I havent tried either of those yet, so i dont have any first hand experience. I just know that in the specs for them it says that they will do it. I do have one of the older KG-UVD1P radios that i've had for a couple of years that is still working great, but like was mentioned before, it wont do the splinter frequencies. Aside from that, its a great little radio, even though its definately no Motorola.

I did that one at a hamfest, making the appropriate motions with one of their HTs.

I'm lucky I made it out with my life. ;)
