Ainol V2000

Following in the wake of Meizu's miniOne, Chinese firm Ainol has just rolled out its own attempt at drawing on the iPhone's anticipated success. The V2000 is strictly a media player with a smaller 3-inch LCD and features to match its shifted focus. A 600MHz ADI Blackfin chip provides enough decoding performance for the mainstay AVI format as well as various MPEG formats and even RealVideo; audio is just as diverse, with MP3 and WMA support backed by more exotic APE and FLAC lossless music. Voice recoring and an FM radio are built-in to round out the media playback options.

Games are also a strong component of the V2000, Ainol claims. Emulation is onboard for several classic video game systems, including NES and SNES systems, the Sega Genesis, and original NeoGeo arcade games. Over 10,000 titles are said to be playable using external controllers.

Pricing and a release date for the latest Ainol player are yet to be fixed; Ainol describes the device as a prototype, suggesting a final release later in the year. The company however promises a single model that will rely solely on SD cards for up to 4GB of storage. Expectedly, the device is likely to see official sales in China.

    I think I'll avoid anything from a company named after the a**.

    not a format

    AVI is not a format, it's merely a container that can contain a number of formats, just like QuickTime (.mov).

    One would think an outlet like Electronista would know.
