MoS Media Player
Having previously limited itself to music-only players, Britain's Ministry of Sound today introduced the MOSMP100X10, its first video-capable player. The handheld is overtly built for videos and is scarcely larger than its 3.5-inch QVGA screen at 3.3 inches long and 0.6 inches thick. In spite of its size, however, the Ministry's device still contains a live recording feature: line-in jacks for audio and video will capture the input to SD cards. A 1GB card is included and will hold either six hours of audio or four hours of video at full quality. Pre-recorded MP3 music or MP4 videos are supported alongside their Windows Media equivalents.
As has been the case for its past players, the music label has preloaded the MP100X10 with its own content: a 15th-anniversary video as well as ten songs are already included with the shipping model. It should be available now for £150 ($292). [via Tech Digest]
