Tired of squinting at your feeble 2-inch screen? The i1166, a new portable media player launching in March from iLuv, is gonna let you pull your favorite movies from your iPod, iPhone or DVDs, and viddy them on a big honking 9-inch widescreen.
Featuring a built-in memory card, USB slot and DivX video playback capability – and the ability to double as a digital photo frame – the new i1166 opens to let you dock your iWhatever or load a DVD, then closes leaving you with just the sleek viewing screen and controls. No ports, plugs or dangling devices getting caught on stuff.
It’ll charge your device while it’s docked and should average about four hours of playback time, before you have to recharge its Li-Polymer battery. (Should you not have a wall socket or car power port to plug it into.)
Price to be determined, but judging from the $269 price tag on the 8.4-inch version, expect it to come in close to three bills.
