Bluesens G40 PMP – with Wi-Fi, without DRM

Bluesens G40 PMP
This is the Bluesens G40 PMP, what could possibly be the holy grail of Personal Media Player. Much of its features are common to most PMPs: 2.5″ screen, support for a wide variety of music and video formats, storage up to 4GB via SD/MMC cards.

What really differentiates the Bluesens G40, though, is its ability to share its media: not only does the G40 have built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0, it has absolutely no DRM restrictions whatsoever!

More details on the Bluesens G40 PMP after the jump.

The Zune was alwyas promoted by Microsoft as a PMP that would be great for sharing tunes, due ot its built-in Wi-Fi. In reality, though, a tune that you shared could only be listened to three times before the appalling DRM restrictions blocked access to it.

Not so with the Bluesens G40. Transfer your tunes or your videos wirelessly, either between two G40s, or between your G40 and PC, and listen to the transferred file for as long as you want, with no restrictions whatsoever.

This is the device that people (and particulalrly Zune owners!) have been crying out for – a device that not only lets you watch and listen to your media, but asls lets you transfer it easily too.

The G40 supports MP3 and Ogg audio files, MPEG 4 (XVid and DivX) video files, and JPEG images, and can output videos onto your TV, if you find 2.5″ screen is too small. It also comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, for those of you who can’t do without such things on a handheld gadget!

Now that Bluesens has let the genie out of the bottle with the release of the G40, and finally provided us with a way of transferring media wirelessly without any restrictions, it can only be a matter of time before other PMP manufacturers follow suit. Already Microsoft are rumoured to be relaxing the DRM restrictions on the Zune, and with EMI and Apple’s announcement of DRM-free music being available on iTunes, it seems DRM might finally be on its way into the history books (filed under “technology no-one wanted”) – and about time too!
