RAmos, the company responsible for last year’s gaudy gold gadget, is on its way to redemption with its sleek 1GB RM150 portable media player. Available in black or white, the player features an FM radio, text and photo viewer, and of course support for the standard set of audio codecs.
What makes the RM150 stand out from the crowd is not only its 2.2-inch TFT screen, but also its native support of XviD! True, you won’t be able to fit much on 1GB, but it’s better than that AMV video codec most other Chinese PMPs support. And if you’re a cave person who doesn’t already have a boatload of XviDs on your computer, included with the player is a video conversion tool that will transcode RM, RMVB, VOB, and other files.
Assuming you’re in China, all this can be yours for just 499 yuan ($63). A 512MB version is also available for 399 yuan ($50). Anyone else craving some authentic chow mein?
