iLuv, you love, we all love iLuv

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Updated iLuv has put its heart and soul into mobile movie watching with a portable viewer that also integrates an iPod docking station.

iLuv's unit boasts DVD and iPod compatibility

In March, iLuv unveiled a similar unit with a 7in display, the i1055. However, the Portable Video, MP3 and DVD Player has a larger, 8.4in widescreen LCD display on its outer lid, which lifts up to reveal a DVD or CD spindle and an iPod dock.

Unfortunately, the unit's only compatible with older 30GB, 60GB and 80GB iPods but not Apple's latest range.

A remote control is thrown in too

There's a touch-sensitive and light-emitting iPod-style thumbwheel on the unit's outer lid that controls your iPod's functions by lining your finger movements up with the iPod's own thumbwheel. A menu system is built into the DVD screen, while s-video and AV output jacks mean you can hook the iLuv gadget up to a larger TV.

The unit runs on a rechargeable battery pack, though no information is given about play life. Pictures suggest it has a built in loudspeaker.

iLuv's Portable Video MP3 and DVD Player will be available online later this month for $275 (£135/€160).

The iLuv i1155 is available in the UK here now for £175 (€200/$355).
