Citiwide MP4-010: Portable media player with removable drive

With hard drives continuing to come down in both price and size, it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a portable media player that would allow you to pop drives in and out as easily as you swap flash cards in a digital camera. From the looks of it, Hong Kong’s Citiwide Technologies has done the deed, though their MP4-010 looks like an OEM job waiting for a customer to put a brand name on it. While I am not keen on the idea of having to carry extra drives around to enjoy my video library (it sort of negates some of the convenience of a PMP over a portable DVD player), until we see a terabyte 2.5” drive, something like this could be a good option for those of us with lots of audio and video to take on the road. But it is still a very cool gadget !!
