Panasonic SV-ME1000 waterproof Android-powered portable media player

So we did talk about a couple of water resistant smartphones from Sony yesterday, and perhaps there might just have enough demand for a water resistant portable media player, too. After all, since there are water resistant headphones in the market, who are we to say that there should not be water resistant PMPs as well to go alongside such peripherals? The Panasonic SV-ME1000 is certainly one of them, where this Android-powered device will sport a 7” 800 × 480 resolution display that will be embedded within a waterproof IPX6/7 body. Android 2.3, Gingerbread is the order of the day here, considering how you are not going to use this as a productivity tool, it should be all right without Ice Cream Sandwich. Other hardware specifications include a 1Seg TV tuner, Wi-Fi connectivity, a SDXC memory card slot, 4GB of internal memory, a 0.3-megapixel shooter in front and a 2-megapixel camera at the back.  I seriously do not think that this will ever make it Stateside, but who knows? Stranger things have happened, but the Panasonic SV-ME1000 looks likely to remain a Japan-only device.
