Default Philips PMP - New Look + Gingerbread

Posted from engadget.



Looks like philips is releasing a redone version of their GoGear PMP. It will have access to the android market, and thus like the ipod touch, will have the ability to download apps and games.

The idea is a good one, especially if they manage to pull it off with a decent device. The problem is that most people nowadays aren't terribly interested in a standalone PMP or DAP, it's all about smartphones and convergence. And of those who are interested, they tend to gravitate toward the itouch unless it's something small like an exercise mp3 player.

Therefore, the best way to take a piece of this niche market is going to be (at least at first) based solely upon price - except it's going to cost $179 for 8GB and a to-be-determined amount for the 16GB version. Maybe it'll work abroad, but I'm just not sure that said product is tenable in the US at its price point.
