RAmos RM150 portable media player released


No, that’s not a spelling error, the company is deliberately named RAmos, and the two caps at the beginning aren’t for any reason that's obvious.

After receiving a lot of flak last year for releasing a kitschy “gold” mp3 player, RAmos is out to make amends this time by releasing their latest RM150 portable media player and sticking to two safe colors - black and white.

In the already over-crowded PMP market, the USP of this device seems to be its support for the XviD video format. If you are not yet tuned-in to XviD, it is the latest video compression format being developed as part of an open-source project to combat the other paid alternatives in the market. That probably is a major plus for the RM150, as most other PMPs don’t support this format as yet. The other features of the PMP include a very decent 2.2-inch TFT screen, built-in FM radio, text and photo viewer, and support for all the standard audio formats in the market.

One niggling shortcoming of the RM150 PMP is its storage – the highest is 1GB – and you can't store too much with that kind of space. However, if you're someone who doesn’t mind that, you could get yours from the Chinese market - the RM150 retails in 512 MB and 1 GB versions in China for $50 and $63 respectively. Which is really cheap. And as the popular Chinese saying goes – “Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one”.

Via Ubergizmo.
