istation

i-Station of Korea has come up with a trio of new Android-powered portable media players (PMPs) (running on Android 2.1 Eclair and not Froyo, but since this isn’t a smartphone, that shouldn’t be too bad), with the main focus being a stereoscopic 3D model. Known as the Z3D, i-Station’s effort makes it the first 3D capable PMP in the world, featuring a 7-inch WVGA 3D display at 800 × 480 resolution, 256MB RAM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, DMB capability, a G-sensor and comes in a choice of either 32GB of 64GB capacity. You definitely won’t find Sharp technology in here though, since you are required to wear a pair of 3D glasses if you’re going to view the action yourself. We’re rather cautious about the 500mAh battery though as that doesn’t sound as though it is going to last the distance, especially for a PMP. No idea on the 64GB model’s pricing, but we do know that the 32GB model will arrive in Korea this November for around $500. Keep your fingers crossed that it will make an appearance on the FCC soon, eh?
