iPod nano hack removes apps; Jailbreak work-in-progress [Video]

Apple's latest iPod nano hasn't inspired quite the frenzied hack atmosphere as its iPod touch and iPhone siblings, but that doesn't mean the tiny touchscreen PMP is completely devoid of modification. James Whelton won a nano and spent little time in cooking up an app hack; while so far he can't add software to the PMP, he's figured out how to modify the Springboard UI to remove apps.

Samsung Galaxy Player YP-GB1 Android PMP headed to CES 2011

Samsung is readying a new PMP version of its Galaxy S family of Android smartphones, with the Samsung Galaxy Player YP-GB1 expected to make its debut at CES 2011 next month. The 4-inch WVGA PMP measures 9.9mm thick and uses a Super LCD display rather than Super AMOLED; it also loses the cellular connectivity, with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS, though Samsung Hub says that does free up room for a T-DMB digital TV tuner.

Cowon X7 DAP/PMP gets official in Korea

Cowon has gone official in Korea with its latest PMP that looks more like a smartphone than a traditional PMP I am used to seeing called the X7. The thing has a 4.3-inch screen with no word on what the exact resolution of the thing is. It should make for some nice mobile video playback assuming the screen is decent.

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

I was once stranded in Amsterdam for more than a week with my iPod nano and only 4 albums of music. I started the week at a Microsoft Mobius event, from which I got to visit Amsterdam coffeeshops with some fairly interesting and important people from Microsoft, Qualcomm and some of my other favorite tech blogs. After that event ended and most of my compatriots went home, I stuck around for a while to try to crash Nokia World, to which I was not actually invited or approved. In between, I had to wander the city and avoid getting into trouble.

ViewSonic MB-P702 PMP/ereader surprises by not being a tablet

ViewSonic MB-P702 PMP/ereader surprises by not being a tablet

We'll admit, we were so intrigued by ViewSonic's ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 100 last week, we didn't spot their MB-P702 PMP/ereader at the booth.  According to imp3, the 7-inch slate may look like yet another tablet, but actually it's a whole lot more focussed than the similarly-sized ViewPad 7.  No Android, no web browsing or Google Maps; just 1080p HD video playback with an HDMI output.
