HandHeld CEO 'Welcomes' Apple Ipod Video

We welcome Apple and Mr. Jobs to a market that we pioneered,' said Jeff Oscodar, president and chief executive officer of HandHeld Entertainment. 'Years ago, we knew that people wanted to watch video on handheld devices and we have been satisfying that demand. Apple's announcement earlier today about its plans to begin shipping an iPod video player validates our vision.

'Apple's iPod product line is certainly in flux -- or should I say it's in a 'Shuffle?' I wonder how Nano purchasers feel now. We at HandHeld Entertainment don't treat our customers with such disregard. That's why we are introducing a complete ZVUE(TM) family of portable video devices at CES this coming January. That way, consumers can be free to choose the product that's best for them.

'And one more thing, our products are affordable. All of the products in the ZVUE product family will cost less than the cheapest iPod that supports video.'
