H andHeld Entertainment, a global digital entertainment company, announced the release of the ZVUE 260, value-priced MP3 video player. Called "iPod-esque" by leading technology news outlet Engadget when the product was first announced at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in January 2007, the ZVUE 260 will be available for purchase at Walmart.com later today with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of less than $100. The ZVUE 260 is a full-featured personal media player (PMP) featuring a built-in speaker and a sleek and thin design that ships ready to play out of the box with a "starter" 1 GB (Gigabyte) SD (secure-digital) memory card, sufficient memory for up to six hours of video playback or approximately 500 MP3 songs.

ZVUE 260 video player - ZAPP program

As with previous ZVUE video players, the ZVUE 260 utilizes external SD memory cards (currently available at up to 8 GB), giving users expandability at lower prices than comparable static memory units and greater durability than hard drive-based players. With the latest version of the ZAPP Media Manager software, the ZVUE 260 is one of the easiest to use video and MP3 players on the market today. ZAPP automatically detects media files on a computer so users can easily select, organize and transfer videos, music and photos to their players. The ZAPP program also makes it easy to download and transfer content from HandHeld Entertainment's premium and user-generated content.

"In addition to our players, HandHeld provides one of the most extensive content offerings in the market on our network of Web sites, with premium and free content available for users to download to their ZVUE 260 using our ZAPP program for use anytime, anywhere. We want entertainment to be as accessible to our customers as possible."
