In terms of HD video, 1080p is generally considered to be the brass ring. If your PMP can output it to a TV, awesome. If it can actually display 1080p, than it has a huge leg up on almost every other competitor out there. But what about the company that decides to go above and beyond the call of duty and make a 1280p capable media player?

PMP Today reports that Ainol, a Chinese manufacturer, has just launched the first portable device to support 1280p. This PMP has a 4.3" screen, HDMI out, and 16 GB of Flash storage. It supports TS, AVI, MP4, MPG, MKV, PSP, DAT, VOB, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, MOV, M2V, QT and M2A videos. While the ability to watch 1280p is sort of lost on a tiny screen, the fact that you can output it to a TV with this little PMP is amazing.

The Ainol V8000HDV costs $144. You can buy it here.
