iLuv portable video player

iLuv today began shipping the i1055 portable video player, a unique handheld device that plays both conventional DVD discs as well as video from any fifth-generation video 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. The gadget plays VCDs and audio CDs from the disc drive, or music and photos from the iPod. The system is completely portable, according to iLuv, and plays video for up to 2.5 continuous hours through its built-in NiMH battery. The device comes bundled with an AC power cable as well as a 12-volt car adapter, and the power cable recharges an iPod even during video playback, according to Electronista. iLuv has launched the i1055 in black and white editions for $230.
