ZVUE 260 Plays Portable Video For The Thrifty

Despite bearing a slight resemblance to the iPod, the ZVUE 260 is more of a low-end player than the $249 Apple flagship. Priced at less than $100, the ZVUE 260 depends only on external SD memory cards, which means you're only getting a few gigs on this at most.

Despite the lack of storage, the ZVUE does play back video at 30fps on a QVGA display, plus supports WMA-DRM tracks. There's no real reason to purchase this player over, say, another relatively no-name MP3 player, but the combination of WRM-DRM and video playback at under $100 may be just right for some of you out there when it launches mid-2007.
