Sony touts tasty portable DVD player

Sony DVD goes mobile

Security for virtualized datacentres

Watching movies on a laptop doesn't suit every location, and you may find portable media player screens too small. So what's the alternative for watching films on the go? Portable DVD players, says Sony, which has unveiled a sexy model for the mobile movie addict.

The DVP-FX720 has the advantage of being smaller than most laptops yet boasts a 7in, 16:9 LCD display. A five-hour battery life means you should get a couple of films out of the player before you have to recharge.

Sony's DVP-FX720: smaller than a laptop, larger than an iPod

The player accepts plenty of disc formats, including DVD-R and DVD+R Dual Layer. MP3 tracks stored on CD can be read by the player too.

A USB port allows you to hook it up to a camera for viewing still images and home movies, while the supplied in-car charger means you can use the player to keep the kids quiet during long journeys. Not that you have to listen in - there are two headphone jacks. A remote control is thrown in too.

Sony’s DVP-FX720 is available now for £150 (€200/$300). Several body colour options are available, including Blazing Red, Indigo Blue and Glamour Pink.
