We know, we're slightly bummed too that yesterday's brief "iPod" announcement
wound up not
being a beautiful hard drive-based widescreen video iPod
, but nevertheless, a prototype shown at CES gives iPod video
owners a glimpse at what big screen playback would actually look like. This Belkin
creation was spotted by TechDigest, and aside from sleek, black enclosure, widescreen display, and gaping hole just begging for an iPod video to come on home, we don't much about it. Mimicking the design of so many portable DVD players
already out, this PVP
takes its cues not from an optical disc, but from a movie-playing Apple. The spies thought they overheard that the unit featured a rechargeable battery, which would make sense considering its portable nature, but couldn't confirm it. Of course, until Belkin actually decides to produce these things, it's likely a moot point anyway, but it sure looks sellable.
