The New Year is upon us, and you know what that means. No, no, we’re talking about sticking to your New Year’s resolution - we’re talking about CES. With CES 2010 upon us, companies are already breaking us in for the latest upcoming tech news.

South Korean Cydle, notorious for its in-car multimedia systems, has announced its intentions to enter the competitive PMP market. Its first player, the Cydle P29A, integrates both subscription-free Mobile DTV and an HD Radio tuner. Cydle informs us that DTV availability will be dependent on a user’s location.

Available in either 4GB or 8GB, the P29A packs a 2.9-inch touchscreen displaying at a 240x320 pixel resolution. An inbuilt accelerometer means that the display can switch from landscape to portrait and vice-versa.

An ARM9-based, 480MHz processor is the workhorse behind the device. Forget either Windows CE or a custom Linux Kernel because the P29A uses its own OS dubbed Nucleus.

Additional features include Bluetooth audio, a photo viewer, world clock, alarm functionality, a stopwatch and calculator and lastly a voice recorder with built-in microphone.

Expected to be released in Autumn of next year, the P29A will retail for $199.
