RAmos Launches HD Video Recording-capable PMP

Not much is known about this PMP, it's rumored to be running some variation of Android but there is no solid evidence of that as of yet. It is a great looking piece of hardware and if Android is indeed the chosen OS, this will be a welcome addition to the Android family. It has 720p and 1080p video playback, a 7-inch (800 x ×480) display screen and an HDMI out. There is also support for many different types of media such as, RMVB, AVI, WMV, VOB, FLV, and MPG for starters. There is no set price, I would image that it will not be a cheap device.This is a great choice for all your multimedia needs. [via ramos]
