Wolverne ESP

Wolverne ESPIf looks is not something you care about but what’s on the inside matters, then the Wolverine ESP is for you! Looking like an old cassette player, the ESP is probably packing more memory than the computer you are using to read this post with.

Here are the specs:
- 3.6-inch wide view angle TFT LCD
- JPEG, Bitmap, TIFF, and RAW
- Audio – MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC (MPEG4-Audio), WAV and CDA
- Video – Motion JPEG, MPEG1, MPEG4, XviD and WMV9
- Zoom, Rotate, EXIF Data and slide show with background music
- CF, SD, SDHC, MMC, MS, MS-Pro, XD
- Internal memory (80GB to 250GB)
-TV out port
- Microphone for recording
- Line-in recording
- Built-in Speaker
- 5.3 x 2.8 x 0.9 in

As if 250GB is not enough for you media lovers, you can add tons more with the offering of expansion slot. Now here is the deal breaker, it will cost about $650.00 USD before tax (reads “get a UMPC instead”).
