Toshiba has announced an interesting little portable multimedia device, which looks much like digital photo frame but in fact can do a great deal more.
The Journe Touch, featuring a seven-inch touchscreen, is totally portable so it can be used around the house to listen to music, watch videos, connect up to a high definition TV via HDMI, and access a range of web sites.
It runs on Windows CE 6.0 Pro, a popular choice that’s built-in to a range of consumer electronics devices, and can connect to a Wi-Fi network.
The Journe Touch has 1GB of onboard memory and can accept SD cards up to 32GB in capacity. The docking station allows the battery to be recharged, after which it gives up to seven hours of audio or two hours of Internet use.
Sadly, it also has Internet Explorer version 6 preinstalled as the web browser. I hope there’s a way of upgrading that.
Available later this year, pricing to be confirmed.
