Gemei HD-660 video player
China's Gemei has recently unveiled its latest portable media player, the HD-660, which is capable of playing back HD videos on its 4.3-inch 480x272 widescreen display. The player can hold TransFlash cards with maximum capacities of 32GB and supports JPG, BMP and PNG image files, as well as RM, RMVB, AVI, FLV and MPEG video files. Audio playback consists of MP3, WMA and FLAC formats.
A remote control is bundled with the HD-660, as is a video cable that allows it to connect to TVs and play back its content that way. The 2,000mA lithium-ion battery's life is rated at six hours when playing videos. A USB 2.0 interface is used to connect with Windows 2000, XP or Vista operating systems, along with Mac OS X. Speakers are built-in, and there is an FM radio tuner with recording functionality.
It is officially only available in its home market of China, where it sells for the equivalent of about $88. [via Akihabara]
