There are endless amounts of PMP devices on the market, so why is there need for another one? Well because there are not enough choices I suppose.
The Haier Theatre is an iPod-like PMP for $100. It comes 8GB flavors and 4GB variants which drops the price by $90.
The device is 100% touchscreen and will support AAC, OGG, AVI, JPEG and TXT files. It also comes with an FM tuner and unlike the Corwin or iPod Touch, carries no apps.
What is most striking about the device is that its from a company that is known for manufacturing appliances such as microwaves, freezers and washing machines.
But I guess there is also room for more ways of making money eh? And taking from the $100 price point for this device, we can’t complain too much as it does seem to be a no frills device that does exactly what it was made to do. Play media and don’t give directions.
