Claiming to be first of its kind, the PlayScreen from JOYTECH, includes a 7inch 16:9 WideScreen TFT monitor and a DVD player, all in a ‘Tablet Style’. There’s been lots of portable DVD players around before, but they all have a clamshell form with the screen in the upper lid.
It’s looks pretty versatile – it is able to play back CD Audio, DVD Movies, CR-R, JPEG Files, and MP3 Files. Audio playback though the integrated stereo speakers and utilise full Dolby Digital™ and DTS™ compatibility.
Portability comes via a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery and in-car adaptor or for static use the unit can be desk mounted, wall or car mounted.
It will be available exclusively for £299.99 through play.com from October until January 2004 after which it will be freely available.
Looks fun and we look forward to get our hand on one.
