Commodore Gravel in Pocket
Most people still associate the Commodore name with early personal computers, but its recent revival is quickly establishing a presence in portable electronics. Its most significant introduction to date will be the Gravel in Pocket, a small portable media player designed in the style of its namesake. A 2.8-inch screen dominates the front face of the player with controls hidden around the sides. While its media support includes standard audio, photo, and video formats (including DivX and Windows Media), the player is relatively unique through its inclusion of WiFi for downloading networked content. Storage on the player itself is flash-based with either 1GB or 2GB of memory plus an SD card slot for expansion. Buyers can expect to see the player in November and will have access to the upcoming CommodoreWorld website at the same time to download new music and videos. A full photo of the Gravel in Pocket is available after the jump.
