Chinese company Onda is set to roll out its VX737 portable media player in the next few weeks. Staying true to its obvious inspiration, the 3.94″ x 1.97″ x 0.45″ device doubles as a classic NES simulator. That’s right. Now you can get in some quality Mario time when you’re bored with all your MP3, OGG, FLAC, and WAV tunes; AVI, MPEG4 SP, XviD, and DivX videos; and JPG, BMP, and GIF photos.
The VX737 sports a 2.5-inch TFT QVGA display (320 x 240), but the bigger news seems to be the Freescale MC9328MXL processing and Philips UDA1380TT audio decoder chips under its hood. The chips must score pretty high on the power-consumption scale because the player’s lithium battery can provide 10 hours of music and 5 hours of video entertainment (though not much content can fit onto the pathetic 512MB built into the device). Other features include an FM radio, voice recording, text viewer, and integrated speaker.
There’s no word on pricing or availability, but we don’t expect to see it on U.S. shores anytime soon.
