This wonderful little device can do so much, it can play music, movies, and video games. The best part is you don’t have to keep that bulky gaming controller portion connected all the time. The media player is just the screen portion.
The controller half is just a stand that connects via the player’s USB 2.0 port so you can play video games. The gaming is done via a slew of emulators, here’s the full list: NES, Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Sega Mega Drive and Sega Genesis.
It only supports AVI video, but with the bundled software you can convert a ton of different video formats into AVI. On the sound side it will play MP3, WMA, and WAV while it will also display JPEG, GIF, and BMP images as well as text documents. It has a 3” screen and 1GB of storage built in. There is also a SD card slot that will support up to 4GB. There is a voice recorder and a USB port. The best part is the OS’s it supports, which is just about everything, it works with Windows from 98 all the way up through XP, Mac OSX, and Linux as long as its based on kernel 2.4.2. No word on price or availability though.
