I'm still trying to catch up on the CES/Macworld news, but I can't let the upcoming Hauppauge Portable Video Player (PVP) slip by without comment. It's on the high-end price-wise ($699) but it comes with tons of file format support including MPEG4/Divx/Xvid, Microsoft WMV, and Apple Quicktime. It sports a 20Gig disk and whopping 7" 16:9 screen (big for a PVP player; typical for a Portable DVD Player). It's expected to ship Q1 of this year.
At that price, I think they might have wanted to separate themselves from the competition by adding a larger drive into the mix, but it will be interesting to see if this product will do well. Other PVPs tend to look more like MP3 players with video support, focusing on size, but the Hauppauge model seems to follow a different path.

Am I missing something? Might as well buy a laptop for that price.
I mean, is the average consumer going to buy this thing? If not then it would probably be targeted for the geek niche. Wouldn't those customers rather fiddle with Beyond TV or Meedio etc. on their laptop or spend money on something like this which seems less versatile.
