iUbi PMP-1480 – the Sat-Nav mobile phone PMP!
iUbi has been showing off its forthcoming iUbi PMP-1480 PMP at CeBIT 2007. The PMP-1480 should be great for viewing video, as it comes with a 4.3″ WVGA screen, offering resolutions of up to 800 x 480. More impressive, though, is its list of features, as this is like no other PMP on the market today – in fact, it’s more like a top-end mobile phone, it’s so stuffed with technological goodies.
More details and video of the iUbi PMP-1480 after the jump.
Being a PMP, it needs a lot of storage, so naturally the PMP-1480 comes with a hard drive (30, 40 and 60GB models are available), as well as 64MB of Flash ROM and 128MB of RAM. It also comes with a USB port and composite/S-Video and Component video outputs so you can hook it up to your TV and watch your videos on a screen a little larger (perfect for when you’re in your hotel room or villa).
More impressively, though, is the list of other little add-ons that iUbi have somehow managed to squeeze into the PMP-1428. Bluetooth 2.0, for one, which will let you transfer your content from your mobile phone. If Bluetooth is too slow, you could use Wi-Fi to transfer your media to and from your PC. If that still doesn’t work for you, you could use its optional HSDPA to transfer your media over your mobile phone network at 3.6Mbps.
Of course, being able to watch your vids and transfer your content is all very well, but what kind of PMP would the PMP-1480 be if it didn’t come with GPS? Hang on, GPS on a Personal Media Player? Yup, strap it onto your car, and the PMP-1480 also doubles as a Sat-Nav, with possibly the world’s most impressive Sat-Nav screen!
And just in case you were worried about the PMP-1480 being able to play your media, it supports a full range of media formats, including XviD, DivX, MPEG1/2/4, AVI, WMV, JPEG, BMP, and MP3.
The iUbi PMP-1480 will be out in Korea in May. No details on other markets, yet, but their previous devices have been sold across Europe and Russia, so it may find its way outside of Korea later in the year.
