RoverTV takes on 5G iPod

Doghouse Electronics has launched RoverTV, a digital video recorder and media player that stands to compete with Apple's video iPod. The device can record as well as play live video, and features a timer to schedule recording sessions, according to Electronista. The RoverTV captures live FM radio, supports digital audio playback, and enables users to view photos much like Apple's video iPod. Content is stored on SD cards, and a 2GB card is included with the device. Two distinct models offer a 3.5-inch standard ratio screen ($300) or 4-inch wide-screen playback ($350). Both devices are compatible with Macs as well as Windows systems.

    uhm?

    So any media player that comes out is "taking on apple"?

    I'm pretty sure this device with a different feature set and different storage scheme is not aimed at taking out the iPod. The whole world doesn't revolve around 1 Infinite Loop.

    My Egg-timer...

    ...because it has 'scheduling support', and is capable of generating a sound on cue, is likewise taking on Apple's iPod.

    The beleaguered MP3 player maker will be hard pressed to beat the capabilities of timing the cooking time of eggs, and generating melodious sounds of bells.
