PMP stands for Portable Media Player. These kind of devices are capable of storing and playing digital media such as audio, images, video, documents, etc. The PMPs are especially made for those people who are very much on-the-go and cannot survive without the daily dose of technology and entertainment. PMPs can entertain you a lot and won’t make you feel lonely. Even though, mobile phones are quietly replacing the PMPs but still many people like having PMPs as their must have Gadgets. The PMPs help you to enjoy and have fun with the digital media you want to see and listen. That’s why I decided to find three PMPs which you would search for if you are looking for a PMP in India:
1. Apple iPod Touch 4
It’s Apple only, which took PMP to new heights. The coolness of the iPod touchscreen is one of the major reason to call it as best PMP available in the market. iPod is not only available in the Touch form but it is also available in other different forms(iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle and iPod Classic). This PMP is truly a gem. The best of them all.
- iPod Touch 4 comes in three models – 8 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. These three models would cover all the needs of a person.
- It is lightweight and it weighs only 101 grams.
- It has a display of 3.5 inches with multi-touch function. The resolution is 960 x 640 pixels.
- iPod Touch comes with 2 cameras. Rear camera of 0.7 megapixels and front camera of VGA quality(for Facetime). It also allows us to record videos in High Definition (720p).
- Up to 40 hours battery for music playback and up to 7 hours for video playback.
- 256 MB of RAM & 800 Mhz Processor is available.
- Facetime, Retina display, HD video recording and Game center.
Apple iPod Touch 4 is a great PMP with superb features and it should be the first choice if you are out in search of a PMP.
iPod touch prices in India:
- iPod Touch 4 (8GB) – Rs. 15,400
- iPod Touch 4 (32GB) – Rs. 19,900
- iPod Touch 4 (64GB) – Rs. 25,900
2. Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B
Sony Walkman is one of the most famous brands that offer PMPs. Sony Walkman series is very preferable in India because of the famous-ness of Sony, here in India. Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B is one of the best in the whole Sony Walkman series and hence I am including it in the list. Read about its specifications and the features below and you may get impressed as well.
- Sony Walkman NWZ has a storage of 16 GB.
- It weighs just 62 grams which is just too light to carry.
- It has a 2.8 inched OLED color display screen with a resolution of 400 x 240 pixels.
- No camera is available in this PMP.
- Up to 9 hours battery for music playback and up to 8 hours for video playback.
This PMP is just a simple one. Two things where it excels would be the weight and the cool design. The design is enough to attract and the specs are fine enough to take this PMP into consideration.
The price of Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B is Rs. 11,990
3. Cowon V5 HD
Cowon isn’t a much famous PMP brand in India but it surely is outside India. Cowon produces exciting and great gadgets. It has also launched a few PMPs, Cowon V5 HD being one of them. This PMP would impress you with its sleekness and great battery life. This PMP is cool and is filled with awesomeness. The specifications and features are given below.
- Cowon V5 HD comes in two models – 16 GB and 32 GB.
- It weighs 197 grams which maybe a little over-weight for a PMP.
- It has a 4.8 inches display screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
- No camera is available in this PMP.
- Up to 45 hours for music playback and up to 10 hours for video playback.
This PMP is sleek and great in design. A PMP that should be totally considered when looking for a PMP. The only negative point would be the absence of Wi-Fi which should be added soon. The pricing is given below.
- Cowon V5 HD (16 GB) – Rs. 14,000
- Cowon V5 HD (32 GB) – Rs. 17,000
My choice would be Apple iPod Touch 4. Go for it if you have big pockets and want some awesomeness. Do let us know if you have any other recommendation for PMP’s in India?
