Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
With the development of technology, several of media portable players emerged and have enriched our daily life greatly. We enjoy our favorite movies and music with all kinds of portable players such as iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP, mobile phone and so on. It is really wonderful that we can enjoy our movies and music with smart portable players anytime and anywhere. In this article, I will introduce some latest devices which are all good media player. You may have a look and select your favorite player.
Dell Aero - The Dell Aero is set to become AT&T's second Android-based smartphone following on the heels of the Motorola Backflip.
Dell has re-rendered Aero's Android home screen to be conspicuously iPhone-like. You get a customizable row of four frequently used apps, located at the top of its 3.5-inch, 640 x 360 pixel touchscreen. Your other apps are 4 x 4 gridded across swipeable home screens like the iPhone, instead of Android's usual ever-lengthening pull-up app tray. I was unable to determine, and Dell reps were unable to say, if you could create more than the four app screens on the test device.
Otherwise, the aero acts like a regular Android phone except in one iPhone-like way - the Aero is bereft of the usual front Home, Menu and Back buttons. Instead, on the left perimeter, you get a dual-action button. One press brings you back a page, press-and-hold gets you back home. I'm not quite sure how you access Android app sub-menus.
Amazingly, the Aero is endowed with Quick Office Document Viewer and Editor, which as far as I can tell from the supporting documents, is not included on the supposedly-a-tablet Streak.
iPod Touch - No surprise here: the iPod touch retains its five-star rating and Editor's Choice award for its excellent fourth generation model, which finally includes two cameras, one for still shots and video, and the other for FaceTime video chat, which works seamlessly. And the addition of Game Center for social gaming, and Ping for social networking only promise to make your iPod experience more fun. Every year now, with the touch, Apple seems to outdo itself and leave the competition scrambling. In fact, at this point, the iPod touch doesn't really have much legitimate competition-it seems former competitors like Samsung are now focusing on tablets, like the upcoming Galaxy Tab, in an attempt to grab some of the iPad's considerable market share.
Sony Walkman S750 -Sony has now announced the next addition to the brand, the S750 video MP3 player. The player is shipped with EX vertical in-ear headphones and features digital noise canceling which is claimed to cut out about 98 per cent of background sound, allowing users to turn down the volume without losing audio clarity. Also included is a special adapter for air travelers who want to make the most of the Walkman's noise canceling capabilities while enjoying the in-flight entertainment
The S750 benefits from five Clear Audio technologies including Clear Bass and Clear Stereo, and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine which restores the high frequencies lost in compressed music files such as MP3. Its 2-inch (51mm) LCD display features TruBlack technology to give screen contrast a bit of a boost, and the supplied software allows drag and drop file transfer. There's also an FM radio. It even allows the playback pitch to be adjusted to cater for those who have trouble reaching the high notes. The player also offers the chance to turn a private sing-along into a public performance via the AV-out port, which also provides for standard definition 720 x 480 video content on a connected TV.
All of these multimedia features, along with a battery claimed to give 50 hours of audio or 10 hours of video playback, has been squeezed into a form factor just 0.283-inch (7.2mm) thin. The Walkman S750 will be available in either 8GB or 16GB from October, although Sony's Japanese site also shows a 32GB version. There will also be a splash-proof dock available at the same time.
All of them are also good multimedia player. It is really wonderful that we can enjoy our movies and music with smart portable players anytime and anywhere. But you may also get confused with the problem: how to get movies and music into your favorite portable players?
