In the seemingly endless parade of iPod knockoffs, here comes just one more, this one a nano rip that can also play video. The Thanko Corporation from Japan announced its TPod neo 1G, a DAP with a 1.5-inch display which supports video playback if you don't mind squinting at that postage-stamp-sized screen. It doesn't look quite as svelte as the iPod nano and its flash memory holds just a gigabyte of data, but it certainly is an expert in the video department, able to play back lots of types of video files including MTV/AMX, AVI, MPEG, and WMV. The price is not bad, either, at $144.
