Ainol V1000 Media Player

The Chinese electronics maker Ainol has introduced a new media player that should provide better justifcation for video capabilities in a pocket-sized handheld. The V1000 is capable of playing AVI and MPEG-4 video at 30 frames per second, but its signature feature is built-in emulation of Nintendo Entertainment System games: ROM files from a computer can be loaded into as much as 1GB of built-in flash storage or removable SD cards. The V1000 is also one of the few music players capable of playing the lossless FLAC standard alongside MP3 and WMA. Pricing and availability have not been set, but Ainol's NES support will likely preclude all but imports for interested North American buyers.
