Is that a Moboplay in Your Pocket? HSTi Unveils World's Smallest Pocket Media Player at CES 2012

Paul Lilly

Companies trying to make a splash as CES typically do one of two things. They either release the biggest whatever in the world -- usually a television of some sort -- or, in this case, the smallest pocket media player Earthlings have ever seen. HSTi is set to unveil Moboplay, a 63mm x 60mm x 13mm media player that weighs just 50 grams and fits in the palm of your hand, at the convention in Las Vegas.

Moboplay sports a Wireless Media Stick that looks like an ordinary USB flash drive but is packed with extraordinary features. It plugs into any USB port of any device and is able to stream files from PC, Mac, NAS, or your Android smartphone and tablet, essentially turning them into media servers.

The Wireless Media Stick is optional. By itself, Moboplay supports Full HD 1080p via HDMI and supports a variety of popular file formats, including Blu-ray, M4V, MOV, HDMOV, RM, MKV, MP4, XviD, AVI, WMV, MPEG, M2TS, WMV, FLV, DAT, and many more. It has a USB port and a built-in SD/SDHC card reader.

Moboplay runs $50, or $90 with the Wireless Media Stick bundled in, both of which are introductory prices.
