Memorex reveals iFlip portable video player for iPod



    Memorex has provided iLounge with exclusive details and photos of a new portable video player for fifth-generation iPods. The new iFlip features an 8.4-inch LCD display, integrated speakers, tilting iPod dock, and lithium-ion battery. Users can watch videos stored on an iPod on the iFlip’s built-in display or use the player’s speakers for music-only playback.

    The iFlip offers a native resolution of 480 x 234, while the integrated battery provides up to five hours of power. The fold-up unit also features S-video out, line out, and dual headphone jacks. While the iFlip has an on-screen menu system (brightness, contrast, sharpness, color, screen mode, etc.), Memorex said the user will still navigate music and video via the iPod. The iFlip will launch in mid-September, retailing for $200. It will be available in black or white, with an iFlip carrying case sold separately.

    EXTREMELY Nice looking product.

    One problem though… 8.4” w/ a 480 x 234 resolution? What the heck is up with that!!!???

    interesting enough, i guess….but what’s the real user?  someone wanting to watch a video with 2 people?  because how much nicer is that really than just bringing the ipod up to your eyes.

    i watched ‘pirates of the carribean’ this weekend, and it was just fine on the screen.

    does it have any other input besides the ipod?,  i’m a video aficionado, and it would be great to see the stuff i film on a bigger screen than the one that comes with my video camera… by the way, $200 seems a very reasonable price, considering it’s both, a speaker system and a video-on-the-go system…

    Cool!  Looks like a great product.  I would definitely consider buying.

    I use to carry my portable DVD player on the plane. This is much easier because you don’t have to have all those DVDs. Plus the battery lasts longer. Wish it was thinner

    Pretty cool.  Almost makes me wanna buy a video iPod ... almost.

    for David:

    “does it have any other input besides the ipod?”
    i don’t see nothing wrong with asking for another input… the Numark iDJ2 is a digital turntable FOR IPOD, but it ALSO accepts other inputs…

    I’m waiting for a truely portable video player, with an iPod dock and DVD player, like the iLuv, but also with a truely universal remote, allowing you to control even the iPod with the remote, and a decent battery life. I have to think some company will release one of those soon.

    Me likey, me likey!  Now if only Memorex would get with iLov (new DVD recorder) to combine their powers into one for around $250…I’d be all over it, like flies on a romproast! :)

    WOW!  Very Nice!

    I can’t believe most of the dumbass portable DVD player manufacturers don’t support DiVX.  This device will eat their lunch!!!

    Cooler than a polar bear’s toenails!

    Trying to identify the ports. Any indication it works with an external power supply? [Thinking it would be great on long journeys with kids in backseat.]

    I’m getting mine as soon as it becomes available.  What amazes me is how long it took for anyone to develop such an obvious projduct.  Just as speakers enhance iPod sound, this device will enhance the images—I can claim to have figured that out about ten minutes after the video iPod became available, and I’m “just” an historian.

    Lots of possible uses are mentioned above.  For me it’s a matter of just moving around the house with it while doing other things, cooking, brushing teeth, doing stretches on the floor. Can’t wait to get one!

    @ free radical

    3rd main pic down ...

    looks suspiciously like a “DC IN” port though cannot quite make it out…

    Nice but too big. I’ll stick to my 12.1 inch laptop for movie watching ;-)
