Full movies in your pocket with the Tornado media player

MP3 players, Personal video players

Advanced MP3 players are selling the Tornado media player under their own name, but it seems like a re-brand from Hong Kong-based Sheng Hsin.

The 2GB memory and fairly basic looks aren’t going to get your pulse racing, but it does have one nifty feature – using the supplied software, it can easily convert video files from any recognised format (including straight from standard DVD discs – copyright permitting) to the lesser-known MTV format. That means you can playback via the 65k display out and about, with the memory enough to hold least 3 – 4 full-length movies or up to 400 digital audio files if you want to use it for audio.

Other features include an FM radio, voice recorder, text reader, short and long-play recording and graphic equaliser. All of that will set you back a reasonable £89.
