Anyone else noticed how Portable Media Centers have more or less dropped out of sight? There were a handful from Creative, iRiver, and Samsung last year, but otherwise Microsoft's OS for portable video players hasn't gotten much love from manufacturers. Not sure if that's going to change anytime soon, but BargainPDA spotted a new PMC at Computex this week. The V620, which has a 3.5-inch LCD screen, a 20GB hard drive, and support for playback of WMV, DivX, and MPEG4 video files, is a bit smaller than some other Portable Media Centers out there, should be available worldwide by October.
