Maxian whips out the heavy metal for M800 PMP

One of the common complaints that I hear when it comes to any kind of mobile electronic device is that it feels “cheap and plasticky”. Maxian has heard your cries, and instead of the standard plastic keypad, they’ve implemented metal in their new M800 personal media player.

With the rising popularity of all things skinny (RAZR, Nano, and so forth), Maxian has gone slim with the M800 as well. This PMP packs just 17mm (0.66-inches) of girth. The large 4.3-inch widescreen (WQVGA 480×272) TFT LCD is capable of 16.7 million colors, great for watching all those movies you’ll be loading on either the 30GB or 40GB hard drive found under the hood.

There’s plenty of support for a variety of video codecs, including MPEG1/2, DivX, XviD, DAT, VOB, ISO MPEG-4 SP/ASP, WMV9, and H.264. The Maxian M800 can record video, FM, audio, and your voice, doubling as a digital photo album and e-book reader as well. And yes, it’s even got love for DRM10.
