Switzerland-based Zicplay has introduced the Ewoo, a new remote control device for wirelessly controlling the iPod and iTunes around a home. The device, available in February for $129, uses 2.4GHz wireless technology to transmit audio up to 100 feet away. The Ewoo features a color TFT screen that lets users see and control content from a docked iPod or an iTunes music library from a connected computer. iTunes management is offered via a USB adapter connected to a PC or Mac. The Ewoo dock includes optical, analog, and S-video output and will also recharge the iPod.

Sounds good,
Wondering how it interfaces with iTunes, Can it play Protected AAC and MP4, or is it crippled in the same way as every other networked media player for iTunes.

With so many cool new gadgets coming out for the iPod, it’s getting to be a chore for consumers to sort out the features, strengths, weaknesses, and overall quality of the selections. 

I’ve seen wireless iPod remotes for 1/4 the price of the Ewoo.  What makes it so different, and worth the extra cost?

What makes it so different?
I’d guess the “color TFT screen that lets users see and control content from a docked iPod or an iTunes music library from a connected computer”

I will be buying this the minute it’s released… this is the greatest ipod remote ever created.

It was once said (by ilounge) that the best ipod remote would be the ipod itself.  This seems to answer that better than any solution out there since you’re not broadcasting the music, just the controls… this is so excellent… wish it was out now.

Since the Zicplay has a digital output, does this mean the Digital to Analogue conversion will be done within the hifi amplifier? If so, the sound quality may be really good.
