At the Taitronics Autumn 2006 electronics trade show going on now at the Taipei World Trade Center in Taiwan, Skardin Industrial showed off its entrance into the PMP market with the HT-250. The company, whose main business is manufacturing satellite receivers, has equipped its upcoming device with a 2.4-inch TFT display, DVB-T receiver, AV out, and support for MPEG1/2, MPEG4, DivX, and XviD files.
Additional details are scarce, but we’re assuming that there’s some kind of music player and possibly a few extras accessible through the “menu” button above the speaker. The HT-250 features an SD/MMC expansion card slot that may or may not serve as the PMP’s only source of storage space. Since there’s no word on an internal hard drive, however, we’re thinking it may be the former.
Skardin is based in China, Taiwan, and the UK, which is likely where the HT-250 will make its first (and only?) retail appearance.
