Hauppauge Digital, stalwart in its insistence that computers and TV watching should be merged in blissful unison, has revealed its latest attempt at the PMP market. The imaginatively named Hauppauge pMP sports a 3.5″, 320×240 display and is designed to sync up with any Vista or Media Center PC. It measures in at 12 x 7.8 x 2 cm and the rechargeable Lithium battery should give you around four hours of playback.
Connectivity is handled by USB and content is then stored on a SD/MMC card. The player supports MP3 and WAV audio, MPG, VOB and AVI (MPEG4 ASP, XviD, DivX 4.0/5.0) video. If you haven’t squirreled away enough legitimately recorded or illegitimately downloaded TV shows, then you can fall back on the built-in mobile Freeview TV reception, which boasts a high-sensitivity tuner, EPG and text functions.
The Hauppauge pMP will be available from April at 149 Euros, or around £115.
