CeBIT 2008: Hauppauge Unveils The New "pMP" Player With a TV Tuner


Hauppauge Digital unveils a new portable media player at the CeBIT show in Hannover. The new pMP (no mistake) comes with a 3.5? screen (320×240), SD/MMC slot, USB 2.0 port and an e-book reader. The well-known TV cards manufacturer brings its expertise to the player, adding a “double twin” TV tuner for Vista and Media Center, mobile Freeview TV reception, EPG and text functions. It is compatible with AVI, MPG, VOB, MPEG4, ASP, and DivX XviD 4.0/5.0 video files, MP3, WAV audio files and JPEG image files. Hauppauge claims the 200gm device can run up to 4 hours of video and will be available around April for €150. With a clean metal design, the new pMP might have a great potential, but c’mon Hauppauge, can’t you hire some talented designers? The machine looks like and old rusty transistor.
