Sony Japan has announced the DVP-FX860DT portable DVD player, and there's nothing really special about it. The player packs in a 8 inch display (800 x 480) fixed by two hinges allowing it to rotate 180 degrees. It supported DVD, VCD, Audio CD and MP3 disc playback. Furthermore it has a USB terminal to load up USB drives for MP3 and JPEG playback. Adding a Japanese touch is the TV tuner for viewing the 1SEG transmissions on the move, the player also supports EPG. The onboard battery is good for 6 hours of continuous playback.
The Sony DVP-FX860DT measures 228.6×165.3×32.3mm and weighs 1.02 kgs. It will be available in Japan from September 1 for 60,000 Yen ($ 500).
This may not be packing a lot of goodies but I still want to have something like this to kill the time with style, and watch those Matrix movies all over again for a complete effect.
