    Gauging interest: 7" Divx/MP3 player

    Mods: I read over the rules and believe this post to be okay. Take appropriate action or inform me if I am wrong. A business I own is my method of acquiring this unit, however all I am doing here is getting feedback and gauging interest. I have nothing to sell, and if it comes to that I will request approval as a vendor prior to posting a sale.

    Thanks!



    This will be imported direct from China. It is not currently sold in the USA to my knowledge.

    I am in negotiations to acquire a sample unit of this multimedia player. The big deal is that it is a 7 inch screen, which is desirable to the carpc community. (most similiar players only include a smaller 3-4-5 inch screen).

    Unfortunately it is not touch compatible, but has it's own set of buttons on the side and appears to be a minor-mod away from being functional from within a dashboard.

    It has video IN as well as OUT, usb interface to a full computer, and it's own software to play mp3s, DIVX decoding, and more. built in 20GB hard drive which I believe is a standard 9.5mm laptop drive.

    SO with a permanent power source (takes standard 9vdc i believe, will verify when i get sample), all you'd need to do is relocate the buttons and you've got a multimedia carpc alternative with one single purchase.

    Please give me feedback and interest levels, price you'd pay for such a unit, etc.

    Just did a calculation and it seems to be about the same width as a lilliput 7" with bezel, slightly shorter in height even.

    updated: the 20GB hdd is a 1.8" type, great for stability/reliability in a bumpy car.
    the price may well be in the $300+ range. For a user who mainly wants mp3 and video (easy to convert dvd's into divx), this should be a very attractive price; no need to buy a computer at all.

    ^^That is a good price. Even if you don't get much interest here, you would probably be able to move them on Ebay and through your store. Good luck!

    Without a VGA or DVI input I can't see this being of much interest to the CarPC community.

    I wonder if you could swap out the 20GB HDD for a 60 or 80 and have a very nice little portable media center.......
