iFlip iPod video player
Memorex has unveiled the iFlip, its new portable video player for fifth-generation iPod owners that features an 8.4-inch LCD. The iFlip integrates speakers, a tilting iPod dock, and a lithium-ion battery to power the screen and speakers, according to iLounge. The device enables users to watch videos stored on their iPod with the larger color screen, and supports audio-only playback via the built-in speakers. iFlip ports include S-video out, line out, and dual headphone jacks. An on-screen menu allows users to adjust brightness, contrast, sharpness, color, and screen mode, according to the report. Video and music are still navigated via the iPod, and the screen boasts a resolution of 480 x 234, offering up to five hours of playback time. The iFlip is expected to ship in mid-September for $200 in black or white with an optional carrying case.
