Windows Portable Media Center available for pre-order
Amazon is now taking orders for the upcoming Windows Portable Media Center devices. Windows Mobile-based Portable Media Centers are handheld entertainment devices that store and play recorded TV, movies, home videos, music, and photos transferred from a PC with Windows XP.

According to Microsoft, Portable Media Centers start with storage capacity of 20 GB, capable of holding up to 80 hours of video, or up to 5,000 songs.

These devices will play video, music, and pictures that are transferred from a PC running Windows XP. The devices will play back Windows Media Video, Windows Media Audio, MP3, and JPG, and they are compatible with other file types, including MPEG, MPEG2, DVR-MS, ASF, WAV, and MIDI. The devices connect to the PC using a USB 2.0 cable. Music, video, and pictures are transferred from your PC using Windows Media Player 10.

Creative Labs, iRiver, and Samsung have all announced they will make Portable Media Centers. Amazon is currently accepting orders for the Samsung Yepp and Creative Labs 20GB Zen.
