MSI MT-V660 PMP looks to Zune HD for design inspiration

We're not wanting to point fingers here, but we couldn't help but notice some striking design similarities between the new MSI MT-V660 PMP and Microsoft's Zune HD; still, given the number of iPod copycats we've seen over the years, having your industrial design "borrowed" is now practically a sign that you've arrived.  Appearance aside, the MT-V660 gets a 3.2-inch display, TV output and a reasonably broad range of codec support thanks to the Rockchip RK2806 chipset.

For video, the PMP will happily churn through MKV, AVI (DivX 3/4/5, XviD, H.264), RMVB/RM, MP4, FLV (H.264/H.263), VOB, MPG, DAT, MOV and 3GP files, which neatly bests what the Zune HD can cope with.  Meanwhile, over in audio it'll play MP3, WMA, APE, FLAC, OGG, WAV and AAC files.

There's also the usual picture viewer, ebook reader, calendar, calculator and games, as well as what's described as a "colorful sliding touch UI".  What with there being no pictures of the MT-V660 turned on, we don't know how Zune-like that UI might be.  Also unknown is pricing and availability.
