The mTrix PMP is nice for the price


The mTrix is a nice cheap PMP and no silly rabbit will convince me that it’s just for kids. It’s not a replacement for you iPod, but it is also a heck of a lot cheaper. It has a clamshell design, so the 2-inch LCD screen is protected when you aren’t viewing it. It folds up to a handy 3”x3”x1” size.

It does audio (MP3, WAV, WMA), video (ASF, AVI/MOV) and images (JPEG for slideshows, thumbnails, zoom and pan). It’s got USB 2.0, a calendar and a clock, it supports nine languages and it has a rechargeable lithium ion battery. It comes with a daytime carrying pouch, so I don’t know what you are supposed to do with it at night.

It doesn’t have a hard drive and only has 32MB of flash, but it has a slot for SD and MMC cards, so you can still store and access what you will need.

Don’t get me wrong – this isn’t the best product I have ever seen. It only costs $149, though, so it packs a fairly good punch for the price.
