Korean giant LG is ready and set to release a new hard-drive based media player, with a 500GB storage, somewhere around April of this year. It’s called XF2 Art Cinema, able to pump 1080p vids and 5.1 audio, whenever connected through the integrated HDMI out, and once there, display movie subtitles at any given LCD platform. You can play MPEG 1/2/4, h.264, Xvid, DivX, FLAC, WMA, AC3, WMA, PCM, ADPCM, LPCM, AC3 (5.1ch) and MPEG-1 layer 1/2/3, FLAC, MPEG-2 Layer 1/2, AAC and more, but the highlight is that you can actually take it with you wherever you go. Make sure you have 270,000 won (about $240) to shell out this one.
