PRODUCTS: The Next Personal Media Solution

The consumer electronics marketplace is flooded personal media solutions—you've probably read about portable DVD players, and perhaps you own an Apple iPod. But have you heard about the MobiNote DVX-POD 7010, the device that's set to make a splash in the personal media realm?

The DVX-POD 7010 is a personal multimedia player that lets you play video (MPEG-4, DivX 5, 4, and 3.11, QuickTime 6, and Windows Media Video—WMV—files), record TV directly into MPEG-4 format, and listen to WMA and MP3 audio files. You can also record voice memos and view photos (JPEG, GIF, and BMP files) with the player. The DVX-POD 7010 has a 7" Low-Temperature PolySilicon (LTPS) digital LCD panel that gives you a 170-degree viewing angle, a resolution of 720 x 480p, and 16:9 widescreen format. The device, which weighs 600g, looks strikingly familiar—with a white varnish coat and rounded corners, has the look of an iPod. Also making the device sleek are the operating buttons; they're designed on the top of the player, with the A/V ports located on the sides. The DVX-POD 7010, which will be available in August or September, will cost $599 to $699.
