I’m traveling to CES today, so here’s some news from Taiwanese motherboard maker FIC. They will unveil a Linux-based portable media player (PMP) at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. FIC’s “Vassili” includes a 3.6-inch color LCD screen and a 20GB hard drive, and can play multimedia content downloaded directly from PCs and PVRs (personal video recorders) in a number of formats.

There are several Windows-based products on the market and I’ll report on the best of breed as soon as I get back. Shelly Palmer
