Hisense 1080p HD Media Player unboxing video

Not long ago we reviewed a couple of media players one of which was the Traxdata USB media player. The Traxdata media player was good but the main drawback that we found with it was that it could not playback HD footage, it only up-scaled SD footage to HD.

So that’s where the Hisense 1080p HD Media Player steps in. Not only can it play standard definition footage and up-scale that to HD but it can also playback full HD footage up to 1080p.

The The Hisense 1080p HD Media Player has two USB 2.0 ports on one side and can accept USB memory key type devices as well as USB hard drives and play back video files of numerous types.  Ian is putting together the full review for us at the moment so I wont go in to too much detail and spoil his report but instead have look at the brief unboxing video below to see what’s supplied and then pop back in a few more days to see the full review.

SE Satio unboxed and played with


Just a little over a week before its scheduled release in the UK on October 7th, this unboxing video of the Sony Ericsson 12.1-megapixel camera phone monster known as the Satio (formerly called the Idou) has suddenly popped up on the internet. Obviously not content with just unboxing one Satio phone, the guy in this video unboxes all three colored iterations of the first Symbian-based handset from Sony Ericsson. So, what’s the deal with the Satio? Well, apart from being one of the first phones to boast of a 12.1-megapixel camera, the Sony Ericsson Satio also comes with 3.5-inch touchscreen, Xenon flash, WiFi, Bluetooth, aGPS, Exchange ActiveSync support, and an 8GB microSD card (supports up to 32GB in capacity). We’ve got no word on its pricing, but we do have some instructional videos on how to use the Sony Ericsson Satio.
