Portable video players are set to be the “next big thing”
Pocket-sized devices that let people carry around video and images are set to have a big year in 2005, according to industry experts.
Last year saw the emergence of portable media players, such as the Windows-based Creative Zen portable media player, the Samsung Yepp, the iRiver PMC-100, and the Archos AV400 series among others.
But this year, they are set to get smarter and more connected, to allow people to find more video to watch on them.
Archos launched its latest range of its Linux-based portable media devices at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Friday.
