Viliv X2 AIO mixes GPS, mobile TV, media playback

Viliv X2 AIO

Viliv on Friday added a new, top-end media player and navigation hybrid to its lineup through the X2 All-in-One. The 4.3-inch display is said to be ideal for videos and supports DivX, WMV, and XviD clips stored on flash memory; in Korea, a T-DMB tuner captures live digital TV and gets help from an electronic programming guide. But the device also serves as a full-fledged GPS, Viliv boasts: in addition to full maps with points of interest, a perspective view gives a hint of lane changes, tunnels, and other road details ahead. A 600MHz AMD Alchemy CPU is powerful enough to support varying levels of picture-in-picture that allow mobile TV alongside the map view.

The refreshed X2 further adds to its catalog with a built-in Korean-to-English dictionary, photo viewing, and an FM transmitter that relays audio to a car stereo. Viliv bundles a car mount and offers a version in Korea with a 30GB hard disk for approximately $584, and with double the storage for $637. Viliv caters to English speakers but would have to alter the X2 AIO for use in other countries. [via Akihabara]
