(c)MichelleLambert.com This morning San Francisco based Hand Held Entertainment announced that the $99 ZVUE! portable video/mp3 player is on schedule to be in retail stores next month. Just in time for the 2003 Holiday Shopping Season.

The hand-held ZVUE! can play videos, music videos and MP3s and features an ultra-bright, 2.5-inch full-color screen that plays full-motion video and displays digital images. About the size of a deck of playing cards, the ZVUE! target market is "tween" (youth ages 8 to 12), teenage (youth ages 13-19) and early twenty-something (ages 20 to 25) markets.

Like the MadPlayer launched last October, the ZVUE! uses a costumed compression engine. And like the Madplayer, there will no doubt be utility programs that will convert the various popular video files to the smaller HHE format.

I've been to the HHE offices several times and believe that once you see it, you will want it. I want it. The big question of the season will probably be how can you get it. At this time, ZVUE! isn't set up to accept pre-orders.

Hopefully, I will be posting a video clip of the ZVUE! in action. The video guy I went down there with last week has been busy with other things. Stay tuned.
