Default Mintpad!

found this while over at gmp3.com

http://product.mintpass.co.kr/p_mp100_conc.asp

god I wish I could read Korean

this player looks good but I have some quibbles...

-no widescreen... seriously??? you think the old iRiver CEO would've known better.. keep up with the industry! they seem to have tagged this player as an all in one type player (even with wifi on a 2.86" screen... wtf) so obviously it's mean to play videos too but at that size and no widescreen.. yuck!

-no AMOLED, will be a standard real soon!

-pretty thick.. it's 15mm, I know it has user-removable battery but still.. is thick IMO, it seems like a D2 but.. D2 was released last year and I would've expected.. "more" in terms of design and stuff

-looks like you really have to use the little pencil thing that comes with it to use it (doesn't look simple to use either lots of functions and subfunctions)

-probably won't be released outside of Korea

-no multi-touch, says it has a G sensor but I don't see it in action!

other than that, looks real interesting and promising, don't know if it's released but the last tab has videos! dang! I didn't hear of this player before, I knew Mintpass existed but I guessed I must've browsed their English site or something..

oh I didn't read.. I don't know if it's out or not cuz it's in Korean but the whole like.. site (well all the tabs and links on the webpage anyways) were dedicated to the player so I'm assuming it's quite real, that and they had videos of the player in use (last tab!)

Nice, that thing looks to be right in the middle between the Cowon D2 and O2, size-wise.

However, this concept looks even better...

one more good information about this player.
http://asia.cnet.com/blogs/digihunte...tm?id=63007270

even no wifi or camera, I still like this player. it supports external memory and removable memory. 30 hrs and 5 hrs for music and vdo playback, respectively. some sites said its price is less than 200USD!!

wannabe apple? that's just disrespectful.

there is camera and wifi, unless you were trying to say you'd still like it IF it didn't have it.

I find the UI complicated, maybe it's cuz of the small screen or cuz they crammed so many functions and features into such a tiny player with a tiny screen, it's probably both.

Looks like Mintpass has meglomaniacal ideas of setting up a kind of messaging community along with an online content storage system. All to siphon your hard earned cash to pay for a service that your cellphone can pretty much take care of. I may be wrong but I don't see this working very well in the US. I wish Mint pass would just release some imaginative players instead of these whacky ideas.

Yes, I wanna say like that. Thank you to correct me.


I think it is a culture's difference. In Korea and Japan, ppl always send short messages to others. That why MintPass creates a player like MintPad, I guess.

Oh man! Text messaging is as widespread in the US as the common cold. 1987 pager technology here in the future! What will they downgrade to next?

That's the way I read it. To pay for the server space they would have to charge you something, and I would believe they would have to continue charging to keep it up. Like I said, I can't see this working in the US. With 5 or 6 cellular providers already offering texting who would go with it? Even Apple had to sell the Iphone through a cell provider, and they are famous for trying to take things over
Mint Pass as a company may be worth watching, but they need to hold off on the secret evil plans until after they release a few noteworthy players

Default Behold the Allmighty Mintpad

I can't find a discussion about it anywhere surely someone must have seen this.



The founders behind Iriver have started yet another company
so from samsung>iriver>to mintpass

Will this create as much exitement as Iriver did when they debuted time will show

A video i found:

What do you think
Is it a good idea to get a Mintpad?

PLays several audio formats (even flac)
the memory however is a bit short only 4Gb
maybe i should wait until they release a 8Gb

it also have wifi

And the best part it has a Digital camera
i always though mp3 player should have that , hey why drag with you mobile phone when you can have camera on the player

Im not sure about this but by looking on the video
it seem you can Draw a photo with the stylus and set it as Album art

Read more here:
http://www.pocketables.net/2008/11/mintpass-unveil.html

Look like a bit old news but I never saw this before now
and could not find a thread on Abi either
