Yinlips YDP102 MP3 Player - 100 Hours Playback?

Yinlips YDP102 MP3 Player - 100 Hours Playback?

yin


In a pretty bold statement, Yinlips say that after just 5 minutes of the ‘charging flash’ feature there’s enough juice in the player to power 100 hours of continous playback.

Sounds doubtful? Quite.

The 2GB player comes in black, white, green, orange and pink. Playback includes MP3, WMA, APE, FLAC, AAC, OGG, WAV and there are 6 EQ presets and customisable slots.

128 Yuan / $20

The Ariaz features the pretty cool braile style bumps for navigation and the Muse is touchscreen.

Both offer HDMI output, have SD expansion, are out in the spring and will cost $149 (Muse) and $79 (Ariaz).

NOIKO H-988 HD PMP Glows

NOIKO H-988 HD PMP Glows

noiko-h-988


The render here shows a splash of pink on the zinc alloy casing, a fairly custom affair these days but what’s a bit different is the LED strip that runs along the bottom of the player. Could look cool, could be distracting when actually watching videos, but still.

It’s a 4.3 inch player that supports 1080p video and has TV Out and FM radio. All other details tba.

ONDA VX575+ 1080p Output Now Supported

ona-vx575


We love the look of the ONDA VX575, and now it’s been improved to support full HD. That’s 1920 × 1080 pixels for the non-technical folks. OTG function has been added as well. Besides these improvements, it’s the same 5-inch 800 × 480 player with a jog-wheel at the side. It’s not a touchscreen or WiFi-enabled with video and music playback as its main focus. The VX575+ is compatible with all of these formats: RM/RMVB, MPEG(AVI), MKV, MOV, FLV, MPG, VOB, MPE, DAT, TS, MP3, WMA, AAC, APE, FLAC, TXT. For $133.85, you get the 8GB version from the link below. Hopefully, someone produces a video demo soon but there’s really nothing to show: good music and video playing on a good 5-inch screen.

i-Station T9 HD compliments existing line-up


You might recall i-Station’s last revelation, the T4?  Apparently, Digital Cube have added the same another media player to compliment the T4 dubbed the i-Station T9 HD. If you’re hoping for big changes, then think again. The T4 was originally displayed at the German IFA and was expected to debut stateside in January 2010. Ironic? We think so. Perhaps the T4 has been confused with the T9? If you check out Digital Cube’s website, there is no mention of the T4.


Enough of the irony.


The T9 features a 4.3-inch TFT LCD display featuring touchscreen integration - the 480 x 272 resolution is on the low side. A Samsung S3PC100 processor is the device’s workhorse.


If that isn’t mind-blowing, the T9 features an output HDMI port to view your videos on the big screen. The battery is capable of video playback for up to 10 hours or 20 hours worth of audio playback on just a single charge.


The player’s file format support is most impressive. We originally compared the similar T4 to the Archos 605 because of its variety of supported files. Throw a file at it, and the T9 is likely to handle it; one could believe that it has VLC integrated. Not limited to DivX, XviD, H.264, WMV, MKV, MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, FLAC, APE, WAV, PCM/ADPCM, the device handles it all.


The T9 will come in a choice of four colors - black, white, blue and red. No word on price or availability, but if the T4 is anything to go on, we should expect a January release date.

Chuwi P7L Touch Screen, 1080P Telechips PMP Review

p7l_1


The Chuwi P7L is a PMP that uses the new Telechips processor, the same processor that is being used in quite a few other players like the RAmos T11TE, but the P7L is priced significantly less than the T11TE. The Telechips processor is quite powerful and is new to the Chinese media player scene, but it is making waves and is being quickly adopted by many manufacturers and after using this player i can certainly understand why they are turning to this media processor.


Packing, build quality and hardware:


The packing of the P7L is very simple and compact, it comes with standard accessories such as usb cable, manual and earphones. It doesn’t come with a wall charger (although one is available) and it doesn’tcome with an HDMI cable.


p7l_4


The build quality of the player is best described as budget, although the body design and size resembles that of the Nationite OS-72HR, but unlike the OS-72HR, the P7L body is made of plastic and quite noticeable too. It also has a very slim profile, thinner than most players and thinner than the T11TE. It does have a balanced weight and overall is not very heavy, however the nice design, slim profile and nice weight doesn’t take away from the rather cheapish feel of the plastic body.


p7l_2


The player also has a built in HDMI port which allows you to connect the player to your TV (more on this later), it also has a microsd slot, i have been able to use a 16GB class 6 microsd card by Toshiba and it has worked fine. This does expand the max 8GB internal memory upto an additional 16GB (24GB total). The player has a standard USB slot, which can be used for charging, but it also has an independent power slot that you can use with a wall charger (not included as a standard accessory). It also supports USB OTG.


p7l_10


The player has a 4.3″ screen, sporting a standard 480 x 272 resolution. There seems to be a growing epidemic that many Chinese pmp’s have these day, poor viewing angles, this player is no exception. diverging more than 30 degrees in any angle from the screen makes images look washed out or colors invert to give a negative type of image. I can’t really say that this is purely due to Chuwi cutting corners to save on money as there are more expensive players on the market with the same problem. The screen won’t win any awards, but it does its job well enough that you can still comfortable view what’s on the screen.


Resting atop of the screen is the resistive touch panel, i think Chuwi must have sourced their touch panel from 2 years in the past as i haven’t seen this type of evenly spaced dotted panel since the Onda VX858. Needless to say the touch screen isn’t the strongest point of this player, its would probably rate a 4 or 5 out of 10 for its sensitivity. The lack of sensitivity may also be in part due to the firmware and this may improve with updates (i stress may).


User interface, audio and video playback:


p7l_5


The user interface is built on an Adobe flash based platform, this should have given developers the room to put together a fairly interactive UI, the P7L again has interaction, but on the budgetary level. It is similar to the T11TE, but it lacks just about all the bells and whistles that the T11TE UI has. This UI will allow you to do the bare basics - watch videos, listen to music, read eBooks and change settings. Don’t expect to get this and hope to dazzled by how the UI works, you won’t. Just a note on scrolling through files, the UI does allow for kinetic scrolling, but it doesn’t work very well, i think it’s due to the touch screen lacking sensitivity.


p7l_7


The player does have a Wolfson WM8740 audio dac, so the audio quality can be considered above average, but sadly the players music UI is so basic that borders or the literally useless. I won’t sugar coat it, the player can’t even sort by ID3, its basically purely directory browsing and the only options that the music player has is ‘random, play all or play one’, it doesn’t even have basic eq options.


p7l_11


Now you’re probably at the stage thinking whats good about this player, well ladies and gents it’s the ability to play just about any freaking video file you can throw at it - Seriously! This plays 1080p DTS blueray rips, 720p h.264 MP4 files, MKV with DTS soundtracks, AVI files that are 1280x720 or even higher! The telechips processor is just a video playback gem. It even plays a demo TS file thats about a two minutes long and about 500mb in size.


I am amazed at how well this chip can play video files. I was not able to find a single video file that would not play perfectly, this is the first time that none of my sample files played even the slightest jerky or out of sync. It even supports subtitles and dual audio tracks!


Well it’s great that it can support all these high res video files, but for convenience sake you probably won’t want to load 2GB video files on a 8GB player, as you wouldn’t really be able to tell the difference between a video in 1080p resolution and that of a video in 480x272 or higher resolution, on the players screen. However, it does matter when you turn this player into a TV media player when you connect it up via the HDMI cable to your TV.


p7l_13


The TV out on this is probably the only feature that was thought through properly. Unlike other players that have HDMI out any other sort of TV connection, the P7L has its own separate UI that’s displayed on the TV. Essentially the player really does becomes like a stand alone media player like the HDVP-1. The UI is quite simple, with some options (like change video aspect ratio, brightness and contrast), but for the most part it works well enough for you to choose and watch videos. The player supports 720p and 1080p TV out, so your 1080p videos actually output as 1080p.


The player also supports USB OTG (comes with an OTG cable) so you can hook up external hard drives and play your movies from those devices through the P7L onto your TV.


When you consider that this can play just about any video file, even those with DTS or AC3 audio tracks, you quickly realize that this is actually quite a sweet video player and for its low price, its certainly a player that worth every bang for your buck. The main downside of using this as a media player for your TV is that you’re stuck using the crappy remote that comes with the player for navigation.


The bottom line:


The Chuwi P7L is a good video player with a basic touch screen navigation - that’s all it is, those looking to get this should ONLY purchase it for its video playback ability, the TV out is a plus but may not be what every potential user will actually use. I certainly think the P7L is a good deal considering that other players using the same chip and with the same limitations and fundamentally the same UI, cost almost USD$60 more. The P7L is a good buy for video playback.

Non-Touchscreen Game 800 PMP Clones iPhone Homescreen

game_800_01We’ve posted a great number of iPhone clones throughout the three years we’ve been online, but this is the first time we’ve come across a calculator posing as an iPhone clone. The Game-800 is a serious product, though, and is seriously available for the dirt-cheap price of $87. For that amount you get an 8GB PMP with FM tuner and a camera, supporting all popular video and music formats. It’s also an NES, GB, GBC emulator supporting 32 bit and 64 bit games. But the funny thing is, despite the iPhonesque icons on the homescreen, the Game 800 screen isn’t touch-controlled. You navigate using the buttons below the 3.5-inch LCD.

Philips SA075 gets spec’ed

Philips SA075 gets spec’ed

Philips SA075


The Philips SA075 might have received the red carpet treatment at a launch party in Beijing, but getting any stats on the much anticipated player has proven difficult. For goodness sake, we’ve had more success getting stats on the less exciting Philips Cam.


Well, we now have the specifications to end all speculation on the newest Philips PMP.


That flash, glossy touchscreen displaying at 800 x 480 pixels extends a healthy 4.3-inches.  The slits for the speakers left and right of the player in combination with the black finish and the player’s rounded edges mimic the iPhone in appearance - we’re not complaining.


The SA075 is available in either 8GB or 16GB flavors and both models include a Micro SD card slot for further expansions.


Filled with support for open-format goodness, the device can handle most popular formats including MP3, WAV, APE, FLAC, and OGG audio formats and AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, RMVB, FLV, and XVID video formats amongst others with playback support for video up to a 1280 × 720 resolution.


But the SA075 is not just limited to just being your ordinary media player. The player can function as a voice recorder, e-book reader, and FM radio - it has it all.


If that English-looking menu is anything to go on, we should be seeing a Stateside release (or at least we hope). While no word on a release date, the SA075 will retail for 1099 (or ~$161 USD) and 1299 yuan (or ~$190 USD) for the 8GB and 16GB, respectively.
