SmartQ has another flash based portable media player for us from China with the release of the SmartQ T5. Coming in 2 and 4GB variations, the T5 plays a variety of file formats including 640x480, 30 fps XVID DivX, and features a 3.0-inch screen -- 320x240, a shame considering its VGA quality playback potential -- with a battery that can last up to 7 hours playing video, and 22 hours playing audio. No word on shipping dates or prices, but you know how it goes with these flash playing gadgets that never seem to make it stateside.
