Nainworks DMB PMP without ugly antenna

Nainworks DMB PMP without ugly antenna


The news is still trickling in from CeBIT in Hanover, Germany. This time, we managed to come across the “Ubiquitous Multimedia Informator” (UMI), a PMP from a little known company called Nainworks. By the sounds of it, you can hook this up to a DMB receiver and not deal with a huge built-in antenna.

It’s really hard to set yourself apart in the world of PMPs anymore, so the best you can do is throw in as much file format support you can into a sleek design, and it seems that Nainworks has achieved this. The simple cover/stand on the UMI is functional, and the rounded edges, well, they just look nice. As far as what kinds of media this thing will take, it’s got you covered: MPEG1, MPEG4 SP, XviD, DivX3/4/5 + SMI, MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, AC3, and WAV.

If the 4-inch 480 x 272 widescreen isn’t sufficient, you can always make use of the TV-out (both PAL and NTSC). There are 20 gigs of storage on-board, and battery life rings in at 5 hours for video, 10 hours for audio.
