ViewSonic launch Palm-sized HD Media Players

Not simply satisfied with breaking in to the netbook market, ViewSonic had just announced a new range of palm-sized media players.

VPD400 500


In order to meet consumers’ mobile video and audio demands, ViewSonic® – the global leader in video technology – today introduced two brand new palm-sized media players – the MovieBook™ VPD500 and VPD400. Differentiating from similar products, the MovieBook™ line-up features larger screens, and extended multimedia support for a variety of file formats, making them a great solution for portable entertainment.

Weighing as little as 134g (VPD400), these easy to use and compact devices fit perfectly into the palm of a hand, to easily view the 5-inch or 4.3-inch crystal clear TFT-LCD display. Featuring high-resolution, 800×480 LCD panels, 720p video output, 8GB of built-in memory and a micro SD card slot for memory expansion, the user can experience all their favourite content whenever and wherever they choose. Combined with a 1900mAh (VPD500) large capacity battery, the devices can play up to four hours of video content or fifteen hours of music (display off) with one charge, making them ideal for viewing movies, listening to music, sharing photos, all while travelling or commuting to work.

From playing movies on the built-in display or connecting to a TV, users can play video and audio files without going through a complex file conversion process. ViewSonic’s MovieBook™ devices support popular video and music formats, including AVI, RMVB, FLV, MP3, WMA and WAV, APE and FLAC.

The ViewSonic MovieBook™ VPD500 and VPD400 will be available in October with an Estimated Street Prices of £115 and £105 (inc VAT), respectively.
