What do you get if you cross an iPod with a DVD player?

An eVU that you can't buy

Build a business case: developing custom apps

CES Maybe the tiny video iPod screen doesn’t quite do it for you. Or, perhaps, you’re tired of lugging around a pretty clunky portable device just to watch DVDs. If so, you might want to check out the eVU device from e.Digital.

e.Digital describes the eVU as a mobile entertainment device (MED), and that seems pretty darn accurate. The product boasts a seven-inch LCD display, a simple graphical user interface (GUI) with touch-screen functions, dual stereo-headphone jacks and more than 10 hours of battery life. Customers can use the system to play movies, listen to music or watch TV.

The depressing part about the sleek-looking device is that it’s not really available to end users. It seems that e.Digital is selling the product to airlines and other customers who will use it as a delivery platform for other services. After all, it has a credit card reader.

Still, the device seems to provide a nice example of the direction portable media players are taking. You can scope the system here. ®
