Register Hardware is reporting that Sega are planning releasing a new portable media device next year under the name Sega Vision. Register Hardware do seem to have some proof to back up their report though with a promotional image and what seems to be an official trailer. The device is shown to be no bigger than a credit card, and has a list of features:
Portable TV tuner, MP4 movie player, MP3 music player, Digital camera, Video camera, Games (Trailer says they’re in Java form), eBooks and document reader, Voice Recorder.
Here is a promotional image Register Hardware are displaying in their article:
This device would definitely appeal to people who are yet to own some form of portable media device and it’s nice to see Sega release a piece of hardware even if it’s not a games console. Would be cool if it had a Sega published Sonic Java game built in.
What do you guy’s make of all this? Discuss over at the SSMB topic.
