Small enough to fit in your pocket and large enough to perform astounding digital feats, the PocketDISH from Dish Network, is for the person who likes to enjoy their programs on the go. You can download an entire movie from a Dish Network DVR (Digital Video Recorder) in just a few minutes and then take it with you wherever go. The largest model has a 40 Gig hard drive! But the PocketDISH does more than allow you to watch your favorite programs on a brilliant LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen. It holds a boatload of your photos, music, and games!
Where else could you possibly store and easily retrieve up to 400,000 photos in a hand held device? Even if you took a 100 photographs a day, it still gives you over a decade worth of storage. The PocketDISH also enables you to connect to a television to view your photos on a big screen or just see them on the bright LCD screen. In addition, you can keep your entire library of digital songs, up to 20, 000 songs in three different formats: MP3, WMA, or WAV. You can organize them with cover art in your own individual play lists. You can take the PocketDISH to the next family reunion and pass around the photos you took at the last gathering. It is sure to be a big hit.
Dish Network, and their partner, ARCHOS have come together to create the PocketDISH, and you have the choice of three different screen sizes, from 2.2 , 4, and 7-inch screen, along with the option of 20, 30, or 40 GB hard drives. PocketDISH was big draw at this years Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The AV700E is the model that has a wide screen display of 7 inches and a 40GB hard drive for $599. I never thought a 7-inch screen would look huge—but it does.
With iTunes, customers must pay about two bucks per episode, whereas the programming is free. The signal from the PocketDISH cannot be played through other devices, such as a computer, due to proprietary agreements concerning the DRM (Digital Rights Management) and issues with the providers of content. Just transfer the programs from certain DVR receivers, and Voila!, you are ready to travel, watch, and travel some more. And it is also a portable DVR, allowing you to record your favorite shows, sports and news to watch later.
There are even a role-playing and adventure games on the PocketDISH. Challenge yourself anywhere, anytime. Music, videos, games, photos, it does it all. Your next train trip will be like no other if you take along the PocketDish from Dish Network. Enjoy your programs on the go, wherever you go! Take your new companion with you and make new friends along the way!
