Neonumeric NPMP F1: a personal media player with a camera
More news from the convergence zeitgeist. French firm Neonumeric has unveiled its NPMP F1, a personal media player with a built-in two-megapixel camera.
The device also has a 2.4-inch QVGA-res screen, and is capable of playing video in the AVI, WMV, MPG and MOV formats, as well as pumping out MP3, WMA and WAV audio files. Intriguingly, the camera can also act as a webcam – presumably when connected up to a computer or laptop.
Also on board is an FM radio tuner, a Micro SD memory card slot for expansion, and the device works with PCs, Macs and Linux machines. I do wonder how much appeal this sort of device has in the long-term, seeing as mobile phones can do pretty much all these features, and when they come with a touchscreen can rival PMPs for screen size too.
Anyway, no details on pricing or release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
