New personal DVD player from Axion
For years I wondered when there would finally be a Walkman CD player that could play CDs loaded up with MP3 files. Now I'm wondering when we'll see a DVD player that plays DVDs loaded up with DIVX movies and oodles of MP3s.
Until that day comes we're forced to use our pdas or various portable media players... or now, if we are satisfied with playing DVDs, we can have our own portable DVD player from Axion. Looks like you can even play video games on it with a SEGA game pad!
* Hi-Res 4.2" Widescreen LCD screen
* Top-loading DVD/CD/MP3 player
* Built-in Axi-Port for connecting to TV tuner or SEGA(TM) game pad.
* Stereo A/V output jack for external TV monitor
* Built-in stereo speakers
* AC/DC (Car Cord) adapters included
* Kickstand for easy desktop use
* Two stereo Hi-Fi headphone jacks
Built-in 7.4V polymer Li-ion battery
Dimensions: 5.51x5.51x1.02" (14.0x14.0x2.6cm) (HWD)
Very impressive. I couldn't find it at the online store, but it's supposed to go for $140. The optional TV tuner is only about $40.

Depending on the resolution of the screen, this wouldn't be a bad toy at all. I'd really like it to be DivX compatible as well. We technogeeks will love it!
I just noticed the battery is built in, too (which is a negative factor, IMHO). I hope the battery life is good.

If nothing else, the price is right. Remember when Panasonic came out with their first portable DVD player at over $1000?
cbarnett is right though. The battery should always be user replacable.
