Personal Multimedia Players (PMPs) have come a long way in the last few years thanks to product innovations and the lower cost of flash memory chips. If you are still in high school ask your grandparents to tell you about something called a “boombox” or a “ghetto blaster”. After you stop laughing you will begin to understand significance of the digital revolution that is taking place right before your eyes and ears. The current selection of MP3 and MP4 players have made it possible to store and playback a complete music library, with hundreds of hours of music, along with you in a device about the size of a small stack of credit cards. Image trying to do something like that with a boombox – you’d have to be followed around by a guy in a pick-up truck loaded with tons of audiocassettes!
And if you’re into video, MP4 players allow you to download and watch your favorite movie or television show on a hand-held player that’s able to fit into the palm of your hand. And the innovations and lower price points for these digital MP3 and MP4 players just keeps getting better and better.
Just a few short years ago when Apple introduced its first IPod, the best you could hope for was the ability to carry around lots of stereo music downloaded into a hand-held device via a computer. No video component, no real file-sharing, no Bluetooth™ Wi-Fi downloading - just lots of music at your fingertips. By today’s standards the system wasn’t cheap, but regardless of the price consumers went gaga for the IPod. For a while Apple’s cool-looking PMP was the only game in town. But if there’s one thing that you can be certain of, when it comes to technology, just as soon as you plop down your cash for the latest gadget, a newer, cheaper and better one will be released.
Now the market for MP3 and MP4 players has expanded to the point that price and performance go a long way. Who would have thought that you would be able to purchase a 3-inch touchscreen player capable of storing 8 gigabytes of data for under $80? There are even smaller players with 2GB of storage for under 30 dollars with the capability of supporting not only MP4 and MP3 formats, but also MPEG, MOV, AVI, FLV, WAV, AAC, MPG, DAT, RM, RMVB, WMV, 3GP, VOB, WMA, OGG, RA M4A as well as APE and FLAC. There are even similarly-sized HD players with S-Video out.
As more manufacturers enter the field with stronger products and lower prices, the time will come when everyone will be plugged in to a MP3/MP4 player that also serves as a broadband Internet device, cell phone, video recorder and PDA. But given the current crop of new gadgets on the market, if you’re still thinking about diving headlong into the digital revolution, the timing couldn’t be better.
