Minox DMP-3 Mini Media Player/Recorder

Minox is usually a nameplate we see on cameras around here, but now the company dives into the media player/recorder business with its DMP-3, whose distinctive look is the result of a collaboration between Minox and Volkswagen-Design. This is one small unit with its largest dimension at a mere 3.5 inches, but even the eagle-eyed might have to squint to enjoy video on its 2.5-inch screen.

It packs the usual slate of features found inside most media players these days, including MPEG-4 video playback, 640x480/30fps video recording via NTSC or PAL inputs, a digital photo album from which you can print, voice recorder and of course, an audio player that can handle MP3 and WMA as long as there's none of that loathsome digital rights management attached. Plus, it will accept a 2GB SD card on which to store all that video. Nobody's talking about when we might see this on the market or at what price.
