MPIO ships out pocket-sized 4GB video player

MPIO MG100

MPIO today expanded the crowd of flash-based video players with a new version of its MG100. The new version offers 4GB of storage with the ability to play videos converted to the specialized MTV video format; although small at 0.36 inches thick, the device has enough battery life to play clips uninterrupted for 6 hours. Music lasts for a considerably longer 20 hours and supports the virtually standard MP3 and WMA formats, including protected WMA from Napster and similar shops. Line-in and voice recording, however, are mixed in for capturing directly from the radio or in a lecture. FM radio and photo viewing complete the feature set.

The MG100 should be available now in Japan and will likely sell for close to $200 in the country. MPIO sells its players in the US and may bring the larger-capacity player here, though no plans have been announced so far for the new version. [via Akihabara]
