Default Portable video player with HD out, lots of vid formats, subs and good battery life?

Since I made this thread, my "requirements" have changed somewhat, so I have edited this post.

What I'm looking for now is a 4-5" PVP with support for HD video, and with external subtitle support and HDMI output:
  • Screen size around 5"
  • Support for 720p playback
  • HDMI output (to plug it into my TV)
  • Support for loads of video formats/codecs/containers, including DivX, XviD, MP4, MKV, H264, AVI, etc. (yes, I know, some of these are containers, others are codecs, and so on)
  • Support for subtitles (.srt or .smi, etc.)
  • Good battery life (for viewing videos on the go)
  • Should show up as a regular hard disk when connected to a PC

I don't care if it's touch or not.

It should probably support SD cards to expand the storage.

Does the perfect player exist out there somewhere?

Hi everyone!

As you can see, I'm all new to this forum, and I'm quite happy that I found it! You see, I'm looking for a new portable video player which matches my criteria.

What I'm looking for in a PVP is:
  • Support for loads of video formats/codecs/containers, including DivX, XviD, MP4, MKV, H264, AVI, etc. (yes, I know, some of these are containers, others are codecs, and so on)
  • Support for subtitles (.srt or .smi, etc.)
  • HD output (do any PVPs have HDMI these days?)
  • Good battery life (for viewing videos on the go)
  • Should show up as a regular hard disk when connected to a PC
  • At least a 4" screen or so, with decent resolution (I want to view HD content after all)
  • Should be able to handle full HD videos
  • I don't really care if it's touch or not, but it would be nice to be able to use it without having to touch the screen
  • AMOLED screen perhaps? Although it probably isn't necessary, it might be a "nice to have"
  • Support for SDHC memory cards would be awesome

Of course, I'm assuming that there will be at least some basic support for audio as well

Right now I have an old Cowon A2 which I'm pretty happy with. It seems to support just about anything non-HD I throw at it (except a lot of WMV files for some reason, but that's rare).

Anyway, thanks for reading, and if you have any suggestions, feel free to make them even if it doesn't necessarily include my wishes above. But if a player exactly like this does exist, I would be a happy camper!
