Memorex TouchMP $99 touchscreen PMP reviewed

Memorex TouchMP $99 touchscreen PMP reviewed

Memorex isn't a brand we particularly associate with desirable PMPs, but the company is hoping to gain a little more attention for their mediaplayer division with the launch of the Memorex TouchMP.  Notable for offering a full touchscreen interface and 8GB of storage despite being priced at just $99, the TouchMP has actually managed to make a good impression over at CNET.

The looks may be reminiscent of a Palm Pilot, and the sound performance merely "acceptable for the price", but there's plenty to like about the TouchMP.  For a start there's a microSD card expansion slot on the bottom (with its content merged with the integrated storage), and Memorex's supplied headphones break with PMP tradition by actually being reasonable to use.

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

It's become somewhat traditional to start the week's review with what's happening in the netbook world, a niche that's arguably the fastest developing right now in consumer tech.  Fujitsu kicked things off with the proclamation that budget ultraportables "don't add up" and that the current race to the bottom line doesn't give manufacturers enough room to make profit; Fujitsu were rumored the week before to be planning a netbook of their own, only with the emphasis on build quality rather than solely the price tag.  Sony also picked up a few netbook-in-progress rumors, tipped for Q4 2008, and HP revealed that they're working on a follow-up to the 2133 Mini-Note that will be less sturdy but also less expensive.

LG, too, are said to have a netbook in the works, with a model tentatively named X110 running Intel's Atom CPU and made for them by MSI.  It's uncertain whether, if this turns out to be true, the X110 would be a rebadge of the MSI Wind or a whole new design.  Finally, ASUS confirmed they wouldn't be letting up the pressure as firm most associated with the segment; there's talk of an "all day" battery and cloud storage option for release later on in 2008.
