iLuv iPod Video Player

iLuv is today shipping the i1055 portable video player, a unique handheld that can play both conventional DVD discs as well as video from any fifth-generation iPod. A 7-inch screen on the front is connected to both a DVD drive and an iPod dock on the back, allowing the i1055 to play videos from either format in a single device. Other functions are supported as well, such as playing VCDs and audio CDs from the disc drive or music and photos from the iPod. The system is completely portable, according to iLuv, and can play video for as much as 2.5 continuous hours through its built-in NiMH battery. An AC power cable and a 12-volt car adapter are also packed with the handheld, and the former can recharge an iPod even during video playback. iLuv has launched the i1055 in black and white editions for $230, though it can now be found at for $180 before shipping.
