OK, it’s not microscopic, but if you’re trying to watch movies, it may as well be. When I saw this thing on Sci Fi Tech, I was thinking that I could probably get a better picture out of watching a movie on my thumbnail.
The TA 454 Digital Video Player plays radio and music, as well as photos and video—on its 1.5-inch screen. Now that’s the kind of tiny that we don’t want to see anyone top. And speaking of tiny, don’t expect to cram too much on there with only 256MB of memory; however, there is a memory card slot.
This kind of device says that you love to take every type of entertainment on the go, but was too cheap to buy an iPod or the Zune. Seriously though, what kind of quality could you possibly expect for 80 bucks? It’s not like you pay per inch, people.
Still, it could be the perfect gift for the gadget geek on your Christmas list. Just be careful. You can’t fool us with tons of those Styrofoam packing peanuts and big bows.
