Digital Cube i-Station PMP1000

Digital Cube of Korea has just released the i-Station PMP1000 (check out their event page), a portable media player that not only plays a variety of audio and video formats (DivX, XviD, MPEG-1/2/4, AVI, JPEG, MP3, OGG, and others), but functions as calculator, dictionary, and FM radio. What's more, all the player's functions are controlled via a slick-looking custom UI and touch-sensitive 3.5-inch color screen (see Figure 10).

While the i-Station PMP1000 doesn't have a personal information manager for managing contacts and calendar appointments, the device's full feature-set, size, styling, and integrated 3.5-inch color touchscreen differentiate it from its competition (Archos AV400, Creative Portable Media Center). As with all cool devices from Asia, the i-Station PMP1000 will initially be available in Korea (est. $500) and other parts of Asia, but you might end up finding it on eBay or web sites that specialize in importing Asian specialty gadgets.
