"All-in-one" media player
If you're willing to carry it with you, the eMotion Portable Media Player DVD by MediaStreet can play virtually any type of content you might want. Aside from playing standard CDs and DVDs, it can also read ones loaded with photos, or MP3 and WMA audio, and DivX, VCD and MPEG-4 video. Since memory cards are becoming increasingly prevalent of course, it can also read the SD, MMC and Memory Stick formats directly, or other formats (such as CF) through an external USB reader. The USB 2.0 port can even be used to access files on portable hard drives. Red, silver and black versions are currently being sold online for $130; a special edition loaded with Public Enemy/SLAMjamz tracks will ship in the second quarter.
