RAmos may have a daftly-capitalized name, but they're deadly serious when it comes to picture quality for their latest T9 PMP.  The 4.3-inch touchscreen brings with it 800 x 480 resolution and 24-bit, 16-million color support, together with a 400:1 contrast ratio, 170-degree top-to-bottom viewing angle and LED backlighting.
