We're not exactly sure why anyone would want to watch anything on a 1.5-inch screen, but apparently the unwashed masses do; as such, enter the TA 454 Digital Video Player. About the size of two quarters, this $80 256MB media player takes SD cards and will playback WMV, MP3, SMV, JPG and eBook files. We're still mystified how the TA 454's engineers managed to get an FM tuner into that tiny case, too, but that's why they have advanced degrees and laboratories and we don't. Still, we'd like to see it go head-to-head against the iRiver N20, the other tiny DAP with a screen du jour.
