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

An eVU that you can't buy

High performance access to file storage

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. ®
