Wow! It’s an Apple Tablet pre-release!!
here’s CNet’s review (with video!)
Is the tablet’s screen linked to the iPod/phone’s for control purposes?
$179 on Amazon, with prices ranging from $83 to $170 (See Google pricing guide!)
Here are links to reviews:

Not a bad tablet per the reviews on Cnet, and the retail is around $180.
Does this work with a Zune as well? it just seems like everything is all i(something) and nothing is made for the zune unless u buy it directly off their site or in stores where it looks cheap
Amazon gives it 4 out of 5 stars!
Can you play videos from the SD card slot?
Is the DVD player region locked?
looks really nice and I think philips makes nice stuff that plays divx very well. Too bad I’m not a fan of the open face design, I much prefer the clamshell. Does it at least come with a sleeve or something?
It does come with a pouch, nice.
does it work with other video sources or only i-junk I looked on c net yes it has video in and out and plays from sd card
testfreaks give a little review and talks about the problems they had with the dcp850
From www.productwiki.com this is a quote from them:
The Philips DCP851/37 is a portable DVD player with an extra-large 8.5” widescreen TFT LCD display. It plays CDs and DVDs with a variety of media formats, including JPEG images, MP3 audio files, and VCD, DivX, and MPEG-4 videos. Plus, the Philips DCP851/37 includes a dock for connecting to & charging an iPod. Additional features of the Philips DCP851/37 player include a slot for SD/MMC cards, a remote control for convenient navigation, two headphone jacks for private listening, and a cigarette outlet adapter (12vDC) for hooking the unit up directly to an automobile. The Philips DCP851/37 retails in black for $129.99 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty."
It shows a remote in the picture but it’s not listed in the contents. Does it come with the remote? And if it does can we get a close up picture of it?
Serious question: is it iPHONE compatible?
Self answered: sort of.
3G, 3Gs won’t charge battery and has to be in Airplane Mode.
Bummer. I just trans-graded from 2G to 3Gs (hoping the 4G doesn’t come out next week!
Does anyone know how long a 3Gs will run in Airplane Mode but playing videos without a charger on it? Maybe you can turn off the iPhone screen too and save a little more juice? Basically, is this good for a transcontinental flight, or only intrastate?
I have a Philips MP3 player (which I absolutely love), I’m wondering if this is compatible?? If so, it’d be perfect for car trips!!
I have a 5th Gen iPod with video from early 2006. From the specs listed, I think it says its not compatible. Or am I wrong?
