There's a more in-depth look at the brick-like iUbi 2010 ("Portable" video recorder), the confirmation of some new MobiBlu stuff, a detailed review of Safa's cute little Q100 and the usual redesigned shuffle clone by LuxPro.

We've discussed the iUbi PMP-2010 a couple of days ago, and it had spectacularly little going for it. By now, we understand what the fuzz is all about, though - this is one mighty cheap video playing brick. Sure enough, it's pretty much the biggest and heaviest next-gen video recording unit out there (7-inch screened devices aside). It doesn't exactly overwhelm us with unique features either - although the 4.3-inch, 16.7 million color screen (provided by Samsung) seems to be capable of providing a reasonable amount of eye candy. Anyway, this thing is amazingly cheap compared to what the competition has brought into play. Price levels of 260 euro for a 40GB edition and a mere 350 euro for the 100GB version will certainly appeal to quite a few cash-strapped guys and gals out there.

With a relatively safe amount of American soil below their feet, the South-Korean cubists of MobiBlu decided to move on and design some new funky DAP-gadgetry. As a result, two new devices (dubbed DAH-1800 and DHH-200) have seen the light of day. There's your basic, oblong-shaped DAH-1800 flash player with a metal front plate and some sleek buttons to go with that. If you prefer something more "spacious", then the DHH-200 with its 6GB capacity and a nice-looking color screen might eventually suit your needs. Too bad the actual specifications still haven't been announced, but MobiBlu's "acknowledgement of existince" is a step into the right direction.

Once every while, we come up with some in-depth review on some weird little DAP - hence the name "DAPreview", get it? This time, it was Safa's turn, as we took on their flash-based Q100. Despite being small in appearance, this bugger held out very, very well and it is hereby rewarded the Distinguished DAP cross-of-coolness.

Meanwhile, the guys over at LuxPro can't seem to make up their minds. Yes: they really, really want to come up with some sort of iPod shuffle clone... but all those options, all those possibilities! So many colors to choose from, so many vaporware-like product pages that need redesigning; a man would easily go insane. Still, they've managed to come up with yet another slightly-different version of their original EZ/Top tangent series: say hello to the "EZ/Top Elegant".
