Onkyo reaches new heights with pyramid-shaped Wavio PVR

Designed with cell phone users in mind, the Onkyo Wavio links up to just about any audio/video source, recording that juicy multimedia onto any number of different memory cards. More people are enjoying squinty-eyed video on their mobile phones these days, but getting content on there can be a bit of drag. That’s why this pyramid-shaped device is so great.

There’s a huge variety of card slots here, including standard SD, miniSD, microSD, and Memory Stick Duo, allowing you to transfer recorded movies and television programs onto your Motorola, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, or whatever other cell phone you happen to rock. My Babelnese isn’t what it used to be, but if I’m reading this right, there is no integrated TV tuner, so you’ll need to opt for some sort of add on. File support includes MP4/3GPP (3GP), 3GPP2 (3G2), and ASF.

It may not be as awe-inspiring as those pointy things at Giza, but the Onkyo Wavio rises to the PVR occasion, helping you enjoy Entourage and Studio 60 on the go. The expected launch date, ironically, is Christmas Day accompanied by a sticker price of 19,800 Yen (US$167). Yes, Japan-only, apparently.
