Presigio may be setting a new trend in portable media players with its new "portable multimedia recorder," the PMR-701. This device purports to record video or single frames from an external source like a TV, DVD player or camcorder. There's also an integrated TV tuner (doesn't say what kind) to pick up free broadcast channels, and while the press release claims you can also watch cable, but there's no apparent dock or coax jack. That said, its built-in 20 or 30GB storage turns it into a portable DVR, which is sorta sweet. The PMR-701 has a 3.5-inch 320 x 240 color display and it supports MPEG-4, AVI (DivX and XviD), WMV9 and MP4 and MP3, WMA9, AC3, AAC, and OGG files. Funny though, the press release fails to list a price, and says it will be available "immediately at Prestigio partners' stores across the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa." What, no love for the Americas, Western Europe or Asia / Oceania?
