Epoq Matchbook-Sized Video Player

According to this article over at Cool Gadgets, a company named Epoq has created a video player just a little bigger than a standard book of matches.

Amazingly, it packs in a 320 X 240 screen and a processor capable of playing back unconverted video at 25 frames per second. The price is $US100.

My complaint about every non-PC video player I've owned is that they all have piddling little CPUs, so unless you transcode the videos to match the screen size, they stutter, so I wish these guys good luck ... and hope they bring out a bigger model sometime soon.
