Philips PMC7230

Philips' digital player lineup is so far limited to music and depends heavily on style to distinguish itself from other players. Its first venture into portable media players will be different. The Portable Media Center 7230 is not just a music player with a larger (3.5-inch) screen, according to CNET. The vertical shape and built-in stand make it ideal for watching videos on a long flight or at a desk, removing the necessity of holding the player upright or craning one's neck at an uncomfortable angle. The PMC7230 also includes the ability to record video directly from analog sources such as standard TV or unprotected DVDs up to the player's maximum 30GB capacity. MP3 and WMA audio are supported in addition to JPEG photos and MPEG-4 video. Philips is expected to ship its new handheld shortly for $350.
