SHINY VIDEO REVIEW: E-matic 4GB MP3 Player/Camera

In the video above, Zara takes a look at a camera/MP3 player hybrid device. It’s a bit of a strange combination, especially as there’s no mobile phone in there anywhere, but considering the specs of the little thing, it’s remarkably cheap for what you’re getting.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be available in the UK yet. Ah well – next Christmas perhaps.

Shearer V2000 PMP: iPhone in disguise?


OK, so the Shearer V2000 portable music player isn’t really much like the iPhone except in initial looks. It’s not a phone, for a start, though it does sport a 3-inch 16-million colour polysilicon screen encased in a brushed metal exterior. It’s not touch sensitive, so there are extra buttons at the base of the unit for controlling it.

For the acronym-happy, it supports RM/RMV8, AVI, and MPEG video support, plus MP3, WMA, APE, and FLAC audio files, plus JPEG, bitmap, and GIF image formats. It also has an FM radio tuner, LRC lyrics, and text to speech capability, plus built-in BBE and SRS sound enhancement.
