At first glance, one would think that the 17mm thick Maxian M800 is a PSP. Upon close examination, it’s actually a new PMP with 4.3-inch WQVGA (480x272) display, with DVR capabilities, audio/video playback, USB 2.0 connectivity, a voice recorder, TV-recorder, TV-out and Bur Brown’s audio codec for high quality sound. Other media file format support includes H.264, XviD, and MPEG 1, 2 and 4. Maxian plans to launch the M800 PMP globally, including Europe, Korea, China, and Hong Kong market for a retail price of $415 or 400,000 Korean Won. You read correctly, US isn’t on the list.
