Next up, the MP-529 (below) ? also sporting a curiously large proportioned screen for having no video playback.
Motion JPG is all you get, folks, despite its 2.5-inch TFT LCD. Other specs: MP3/WMA/WMA DRM/FM tuner/voice
recorder/12-hour battery life. Soft porn not included.
Onward to the MP-536 (below, right), a 5GB MicroDrive player with an SD/MMS slot and USB On-the-Go, and the MegaView
566 Pro (below, left), an update to the MV-566. The new
version adds USB On-the-Go to the original, and supports MPEG4/DivX/WMV/JPG/BMP/GIF/MP3/WMA.
More? Dear god, yes. Below is the MV-571, which comes with a choice of 20/40/60GB hard drive and a high-res 640 x 480
pixel 3.7-inch screen. It does MPEG1, 2 and 4 (ASF, AVI, MP4), DivX 3.11/4/5, Motion JPG, WMV9, MP3, WMA, Janus, AAC,
WAV, JPG, and BMP. It?s also got an SD/MMC slot, USB On-the-Go, TV tuner (via docking station), audio/video recording,
screen capture, FM tuner/recorder, and an optional Bluetooth module. It?ll go 3.5 hours for video playback, and 7 hours
for audio alone.
The MP-540 (below) is yet another micro hard drive-based player with a 1.8-inch color screen TFT.
The very last of the line is the MV-569 (not pictured), with a 7-inch screen (800 x 480) that does MPEG4, WMV9, DivX,
ASF, AVI, JPG, BMP, GIF ? and may possibly sport either WiFi or GPRS. GPRS, on a PMP? WTF?
