Philips PMC7230 Portable Media Center

Remember that Tatung Portable Media Center that first turned up at Computex almost exactly a year ago? No? Don't worry about it, because it turns out that Philips is OEM'ing it. The Philips version, which is dubbed the PMC7230, comes with a 30GB hard drive (though the version we played with had only a 20GB drive), 3.5-inch display, PlaysForSure compatability, and a little kickstand on the back so you don't have to hold the thing in your hands for two hours while you're watching a movie. Should be available in September with a retail price of $349 (which is probably about fifty bucks too expensive).
