BestaPro DMP1: Holy Grail of Convergence?
Given the forays of punching features, this Korean-made device might bring hope to the neverland of consummate devices, making this this generation’s Holy Grail of Convergence.
The BestaPro DMP1 flaunts a 20GB hard drive, 64MB SDRAM, a 320 x 240 LCD adjustable touch screen and features the usual music (MP3, WMA, ADPCM, WAV) and video (MPEG-1 and DivX and Xvid MPEG-4) playback formats, FM tuner, TV-out, and USB 1.1 hosting for direct transfer of photos from your digital camera, for example. All in a shiny black box about 10-15% bigger than the i2 in dimensions and weight. However, unlike the i2, the DMP-1 also boasts an integrated 1.3 megapixel cam for stills and video, an SD expansion slot, and includes “PDA functionality” with the Encyclopedia Britannica and electronic dictionary built-in.
The encyclopedia feature is even enough for me to emancipate my gadget lust and salivate a techno-drool.
This definitely stirred my gadget fetish….
