Hey, we understand the need for a break from the CTIA
barrage every now and then, and GeCube
is delivering just that with its latest duo of portable media players
. The Portable HQV Media Player (or PMP200 for short) boasts a 4.3-inch LCD, AV outputs, built-in microphone, sleek, integrated touch controls, and can reportedly hold quite a bundle of songs depending on the size of 2.5-inch hard disk drive that you cram in it. Reportedly, the PMP200 will also come in a slightly less flush rendition, which means that it'll sport the less attractive, albeit more tactile control scheme. The DVRBox unsurprisingly acts as "a portable DVR
," as it records and converts DV, DVD, and TV footage to MPEG4 with "one simple click." Interestingly, this device is of the screenless variety, sports composite / S-Video ins and outs, and also comes begging for a 2.5-inch HDD to call its own. No release dates were readily available, but the sleeker PMP200 should land for around $180, while the chunkier flavor rings up for a few dollars less, and the DVRBox should demand around $139.
