The Thomson A1 is being billed as the world’s smallest personal media player with a 3 inch diagonal screen. Aside from that single (and dubious) claim to fame, it’s fairly unremarkable (16:9 TFT, plays movies and pics, FM tuner) except for the actual dimensions, which are about 3.2 inches by 2 inches, i.e. larger than the 3 inch screen. The A1 will be shortly available in China in 8 gigs for $120 and 4 gigs for $106, but by the time they come out in the US, an actual world’s smallest PMP with a 3 inch screen (or something in the same size with a larger screen) will undoubtedly be available.
