Myvu solo plus offers iPod touch, classic, 3G nano compatibility


Myvu Corporation has introduced its Myvu solo plus, the latest addition to its line of personal media viewers. The Myvu solo plus features an Apple authorization chip that allows it to be used with the iPod touch, iPod classic, and iPod nano (with video), as well as with fifth-generation iPods. Kip Kokinakis, president and CEO of Myvu, said, “We’re proud to introduce Myvu solo plus with support for Apple’s new iPod line just weeks after the new models were introduced, so our customers can stay on top of the latest technologies as they happen.” Other features include a pendant for power and picture control, built-in noise canceling in-ear earbuds, a low-profile design so users can see their surroundings, and a lightweight rechargeable battery that provides up to four hours of play time on a single charge. The Myvu solo plus will be available in early October and will sell for $200.

A side comment : does anyone have evidence (and not only rumors) about the need for an “Apple authentification chip” for video output on the new iPods ?

For now, all I can be sure of is that the specs of video output is different on the new iPods, and that they require new cables.

And I would not be too surprised if this authentication chip was just a bit of very common Apple-related delirium ...

SO, anybody has hard facts on this ?
