Toshiba Intros Portable Media Player at CEATEC

Toshiba was showing off a video player at CEATEC in Japan that's a hybrid DVD and personal media player (PMP), and it also supports the DivX video codec and 1seg digital TV.

If you're not familiar with 1seg, it's an HD mobile digital video broadcasting service in Japan that was officially launched in April of this year, and uses the H.264 video codec.

Although this Toshiba unit does have a widescreen, there was no info available about its resolution, nor was there any word about its ship date and availability. But if it can't handle at least 720p, well, that would be just dumb.
