Venzero Tube media player
Though Venzero posted a teaser image on its website in the fall, the company has only now revealed a bit more about the Tube, its upcoming media player. The main attraction is intended to be a DVB-T TV tuner, but the feature will be mostly irrelevant to American owners, since these broadcasts are rarely used outside of Europe and east Asia. The player will however be able to play AAC, MP3 and WMA audio files, as well MPEG-4 video, and BMP, GIF and JPEG images. There is no onboard flash storage, but it does come with a 1GB SD card and can support greater capacities. The lithium-polymer battery provides up to 12 hours of music or six to 10 hours of video. The cost and final release date have yet to be announced.
