Philips launch HD compatible version of Muse PMP

The old Muse has undergone a bit of a facelift. Silver is in and black is out, with a 3.2 inch touchscreen, SD card slot and HDMI output meaning you can get 720p quality video on your flat screen from just this tiny device alone.

Also getting a bit of an update is the Philips Cam. A small, still-and-video camera packing MP3 player, this 8GB PMP looks to go head-to-head with the iPod Nano.

US readers can pick up the new Muse for $149.99 (around £92), with the Philips Cam weighing in at $99.99 (£60).

With a blatant gap in the market left by the Zune HD, will Philips capitalise and send the Muse PMP in the UK’s direction? It seems a missed opportunity not to.
