Epoq Media Players
Normally known for its TVs, Epoq today launched a pair of small, basic media players. Smallest of all is the unnamed 2.4-inch model (pictured at right). Resembling an iPod-inspired version of the iRiver Clix, the first Epoq device shifts all its controls to the side to reduce the footprint of the media player to little more than that of a matchbox. Its more conventional 2.2-inch equivalent shrinks the screen in favor of front touch-sensitive controls without adding much more to the overall size.
Details and photos of both devices can be found after the jump.
Either model is a true media player, Epoq claims, with 25 frames-per-second AVI or MPEG-1/2 clips as well as MP3/WMA music. Memory is limited to 1GB onboard but can be topped up with miniSD cards. Epoq sells the 2.4- and 2.4-inch jukeboxes today for $100 and $126 respectively. [Thanks, Dan]
