Sungale isn't exactly the biggest, most well-known name in consumer electronics, but it's sure trying to make a run with the big boys. A few months after introducing its own WiFi digiframe, the company is hitting back with a hybrid ereader / PMP device that just seems to be caught somewhere in the middle. Boasting a 7-inch color LCD display (800 x 480), the Cyberus ID700WTA can handle most popular multimedia and ebook formats -- from PDF to DivX, it's (pretty much) all covered. It also touts integrated WiFi, support for streaming media from a home network and a built-in clock / calender. There's also the ability to fetch "online news, weather reports, stock prices and charts, maps and traffic routes, YouTube clips, internet radio, Picasa and Gmail," so we're going out on a limb here and suggesting that some sort of web browser or cadre of inbuilt apps are also included. It's available now around the web for $279, and yes, that snazzy leather case is bundled in.

Sungale Unveils Cyberus Smart Info Engine with Universal Portable Media Device

Unique personal device is the only universal portable media device with WiFi applications, streaming video capabilities and convenient touch screen

Chino, CA -- Sungale, a premier manufacturer of consumer digital electronics products, today announced the latest addition to their CyberusTM line of products, the new Cyberus ID700WTA "Smart Info Engine". The ID700WTA is the first and only universal portable media device that offers access to real time internet information and applications by automatically linking wirelessly to users' home routers. With a large 7" LCD color screen, the Smart Info Engine provides an eBook reader, photo display, card reader, and streaming audio and video player, plus clock, calendar and alarm functions.

The CyberusTM Smart Info Engine features a user friendly touch-screen interface that allows instant one-touch access to real time internet information without using a computer. You can get online news, weather reports, stock prices and charts, maps and traffic routes, access YouTube, IP Radio and Picasa and receive Gmail. The Smart Info Engine also allows you to read eBooks, watch movies and streaming video, upload, view and manipulate digital photos, listen to music and much more.

"Today's media-savvy consumers expect the most up-to-date digital technology, and we strive to keep Sungale's products on the cutting edge to meet and exceed our customers' expectations," said Gary Bennett, Sungale VP of Sales & Marketing. "The Smart Info Engine is truly a next-generation device that combines eBook reader capabilities with the most comprehensive set of digital media features available in a single product. It is designed to deliver the rich entertainment experience we believe our customers deserve."

"Our goal is to cement our leadership position in the consumer electronics industry by making the latest IT technologies available directly to consumers. We overcame some very tough technical challenges during the development of the Cyberus series, especially automatically linking to the internet to allow users without IT knowledge to derive the full benefit of Cyberus devices," added Ningjun Sun, Sungale President & CEO. "We now want to make the Cyberus Smart Info Engine accessible to the widest possible consumer audience, so we're offering it at a far more competitive price than any other high-tech high end product in this category."
