Onda VX737 Gaming PMP

onda vx737 Onda VX737 Gaming PMP

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.


Green Apple AP3100 Does It All

green apple apod Green Apple AP3100 Does It All

China’s Green Apple company recently released the latest (and some say greatest) addition to its APOD line, the AP3100. Since all the available product information is in Chinese, nailing down solid specs has been a bit tricky. What seems certain, however, is that the device sports a 3.6-inch color LCD, SD card expansion slot, and 1.3MP camera, and natively supports MP3, WMA, and FLAC; JPG, GIF, and BMP; and AVI, DivX, and XviD. To top it off, it looks like the AP3100 doubles as a Super Nintendo (known as Super Famicom in Asia) emulator that allows playback of games gleaned from the Internet!

The 4.72″ x 2.56″ x 0.67″ wonder seems to be packing a measly 512MB under its hood, but that’s nothing that can’t be overlooked with the addition of a few 4GB SD cards.

No word on price or availability yet, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find at an import shop once it hits the shelves.
