New Korean PMP seems to do it all
We all know that the iPod line of portable media players (PMPs) are the most famous and ubiquitous at this point in time, but that does not mean that other consumer electronics manufacturers aren’t going to sit down and do nothing. The Maxian E900T from Korea is one interesting PMP that seems to come with everything but the kitchen sink. It is powered by the Windows CE platform, so you can tell from the operating system alone that there will be much more on offer other than the typical audio and video playback capabilities that you get with other standard PMPs. Let’s usher in the new year by checking out just exactly what the Maxian E900T has on offer.
First off, there is a 4.3″ touchscreen display that boasts 800 x 480 resolution, making it much more ideal than other crappy 1.8″ or 2″ displays that we see plenty of in the market. Video support includes WMV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DiVX/XviD and H.264 formats, and the E900T is more than capable of handling just about any audio file including the mainstays WMA, AAC, MP3, and OGG. Heck, tracks that come tagged with SYLT encoding also supports the real-time display of lyrics for folks who love singing along to their favorite tunes.
Enough of the audio video stuff. The Maxian E900T also shines when connected to a home theater system, capable of pumping out 720p high definition video couple with Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound, courtesy of the highly acclaimed Burr-Brown processing circuitry that is output through a digital S/PDIF connection. When out of the home, the E900T functions as a GPS navigation system, with a DMB receiver for those who can’t seem to get enough of their serials. Just when you think that is more than enough, the Maxian E900T even packs in a robust electronic dictionary system with English-to-Korean translation capabilities and Microsoft Office document support. You can choose from 30GB or 60GB versions that come in white and blue black colors respectively. An SD/MMC memory card slot is there for memory expansion purposes.
