Minox DMP 4

Portable media players that can record video are rare but steadily increasing in number: Archos' new line as well as the Doghouse RoverTv already capture video from outside sources to play later on the go. However useful they may be, though, most of these recorders have large screens that limit their portability. The German company Minox is now offering a more balanced player in the form of the Minox DMP 4. At roughly half the size of its competitors, the DMP 4 is still capable of recording DVD, television, or other analog sources through its AV input and encoding them into 480p MPEG-4 clips. It can also record audio in MP3 format. Storage is small at 2GB of internal flash memory, but an SD card slot is included to expand the available space as well as ease transferring recorded media to a computer (a mini-USB port is built-in). Minox has not set a formal launch date or price as of yet.
