Onda Vx560 Flat-Screen Media Player Looks Like a Mini-Tablet Swallowed an E-Book Reader

The handheld media player market is so crowded at this point, you really need to do something special to stand out. This PMP from China strives to differentiate itself with a large high-resolution screen and a form-factor reminiscent of a small tablet PC or e-reader.

The Onda VX560 features a nice big 7-inch screen with a sharp 800×480 display resolution. But one of the really cool things about the VX560 is that it can play full 1080p HD content via an HDMI connection, so you can use it as a high-def media player for your big-screen TV too.

While HD content is supported in H.264 (MKV) format, the player can also handle RM / RMVB (including RealVideo8/9/10 coding), AVI, MOV, FLV, MPG, VOB, and DAT formats. It’ll also work as a full e-Book reader with support for CHM, PDF, HTM, UMD, and PDB formats and text-to-speech book reading too.

Although it looks like a mini-tablet, it doesn’t appear that the VX560 will have a touchscreen, but that’s not for sure. While it’s doubtful Onda will ever officially release the VX560 stateside, you’ll probably be able to find it from online importers in the not-too-distant future.
