Some serious time has passed since Ainol rolled out its abominable V1000, and while we reckon the V2000 was lost somewhere in the mix, the V3000 is pretty enough to note -- if but for a moment. Details are pretty slim on this one, but we are told that the widescreen unit packs an expansive 4.3-inc...

Hey you -- you looking for a quarter of the iPod touch experience for a little less than a quarter of the price? Yeah? Well, how does dropping $73 on the depressingly derivative Teclast M26 grab you? Seriously, this thing looked like it had a glimmer of potential when it was first announced, so it...

Now that we've got the white-knuckle excitement of the Yoto M300's Asian-only deut out of our systems, we're getting hit with a sequel, the M400. Basically the same codec-friendly non-touchscreen PMP as the M300, it looks like the M400 features slightly better build quality in addition to adding P...

We thought the RAmos V8 was looking pretty sleek in render form, but now that some real pictures of the black PMP with the 4.3-inch screen and 16GB of storage have surfaced, we're really impressed -- with how much this thing looks like an iPod touch. (We'll be here all week, folks!) Of course, the...

Tsinghua Tongfang has managed to produce at least one mildly interesting MP4 PMP in the past, so we're not too surprised at the company's new PMC-M880, which features semi-high-def nice-looking PAL video out at 720 X 576 resolution in addition to the usual array of MP4 features. On the go, you'll ...

Finally, an MP4 player that suits our lifestyle. When we're out on the street, feeling the hot rays of the sun, hustling to stay afloat, and generally just jamming, the Neux Corp. Ltd. NXMP324 is what we want. Sure, you can't actually crack this puppy open and gulp it down like a real soda, but yo...

No, friend, that's not a hip gadget from the new, unfortunately titled James Bond film -- it's a very real, very sexy handheld MP4 player capable of running old school Nintendo emulators using solar power. It also plays MP3's, stores e-books (which it can then read aloud to you, a consideration for...

While a bit vague in the whole naming department, this new no-name OEM PMP51 PMP is actually packing a quite a spec sheet. The primary focus of the handheld is supposedly 32 bit gaming, but sadly SNES is nowhere to be found. But lucky for us there's Game Boy Advance play, in addition to Game Boy, G...

No way around it, Ohayo's "design" on this here DAP is just plain criminal. If the hardware weren't slab-a-rific enough, the software interface manages to look cluttered and yet uninviting. 2GB of flash storage and a 1.8-inch OLED screen have never been put to less appealing use. Other than that w...

We've definitely seen some questionable designs from Ramos (and some straight-up KIRFs as well), but it appears as though the company's latest PMP, the RM970, might have actually been drawn up by someone living in this decade. The 2GB device features a 3-inch, 480 x 272 screen, a 200MHz ARM7 proce...

We suppose this is exactly what happened the first time Ive fired up Photoshop to mock up the third-gen iPod nano -- or what happens when KIRFers spend a little too much time watching pandas at the zoo. Plays the usual goofy MTV format on its 2.4-inch screen, as well as MP3 and WMA, but honestly, y...

It was just yesterday we saw that 5.6mm (.2 inch) MP3 player from Ixing, and already little-known Chinese manufacturer Reachgood has gone and topped it with this 5.5mm-thick stainless steel PMP. While you'll probably never notice that .1 millimeter difference, you will notice the inclusion of a 1....

Like a thousand monkeys producing Shakespeare, eventually the endless tidal wave of generic PMPs from China had to result in something interesting, like Tsinghua Tongfang's PMC-V800. Not only does this 2.4-inch PMP sport FLV and SWF support, enabling it to play downloaded YouTube videos and Flash a...

We've seen some dramatically pared down interfaces on portable media devices before, but this PMP from China's Kinwei takes minimalism to a whole new level. In a sharp departure from the usual DIGITAL SOUND PROCESSING label overload, the KW-P4 instead features a virtually unmarked touchpad below i...

It seems like adding a folding screen actually made this PMP larger rather than trimming any size, but other than that, the YDP-G68 pictured here actually seems pretty decent -- you're looking at a 2.8-inch screen, 2GB of internal memory with SD expansion, MP3, WMA, AAC, ASF and MP4 support, FM ra...

We've got another PMP from the East for you today: Onda's vx838 has been popping up on foreign language sites over the last few weeks. It has a relatively impressive 1.8-inch screen considering the old-Nano esque form factor, but there's nothing else to get excited about: this is just another 2GB ...

Try not to yawn too hard on this one, but Emtec has loosed a fairly boring PMP that does manage to do a so-so job in the attractivity department. This 2GB unit sports a 2.2-inch color display, an SD / MMC expansion slot in case a couple gigabytes aren't enough, support for all modern flavors of Wi...

We'll admit, there's a few sects who've already crossed SMS Technology's M500 watch phone off as vaporware in its finest form, but apparently, the firm is finally coming through on its most recent declaration. Yep, those wearable phones the company has been promising all this time are finally shippi...
