With the PBO Alpine, Patriot is taking a 1080p HD Media Player and adding in the flexibility and stability of the Android 2.2 OS teamed with an ARM926 processor. The Android OS takes the PBO Alpine to levels we have not seen in a simple, stand-alone media player, adding the capability to side load thousands of apps to tailor the experience to exactly your liking. Straight out of the box, the PBO Alpine offers a rich and powerful set of features, and keeps it all contained into a very simple installation and interface. The unit itself is very uncluttered, with HDMI, and optical and stereo mini audio outputs, as well as two USB 2.0, Ethernet and optional WiFi (through USB) to connect directly to USB media and your network. An SD card slot is onboard for additional storage for apps and media, and can also be used as a media input should you wish to pull a card directly from your camera/video recorder and view instantly.///"
