NetForce Media Player

Korean electronics maker Digital Cube used a press conference on Friday to introduce two new media players noteworthy for the sheer variety of features. First to be introduced was a new version of the i-Station NetForce, a portable device meant as much to connect to the Internet as for watching videos. In addition to playing back the user's own MPEG-4 videos and mobile TV using Korea's T-DMB standard, the NetForce can also connect to the Internet either through local WiFi hotspots or 3.5G cellular networks through HSDPA. The access gives users the option of transferring music from a local computer or browsing the web on a large, 800x480 display.

A smaller, more compact player known as the i-Station Mini was also announced. Though it only has a 2.4-inch 320x240 screen and drops HSDPA support, Digital Cube says the Mini maintains its T-DMB receiver. Official launch information isn't available. A gallery is available after the jump courtesy of AVING.
